DNA update

The DNA sample arrived in the US this morning. The lady at the lab sent an email to Debbie at the agency saying she had put a "rush" on it and it will be shipped back to Guatemala no later then Monday!!! The best case scenario would be the following: Once the embassy gets it, they will issue our pink slip with our appointment. Generally the embassy issues "pink" within a day or two and appointments are usually one week later. So if the embassy gets the results on Tuesday, we may have "pink" by Thursday and our appointment would be the following Thursday. The day after the embassy appointment we have to wait for the Visa, which is issued after 3:30. I don't know if they issue them on Fridays or not. If not we would get it on Monday and leave Tuesday-Christmas day. Worse case scenario: They have to do further testing on the sample, which can happen. It doesn't mean it is not a match, just more testing. The embassy did issue the I-72, which tells us some paper work is not in order, however it has been resubmitted by our lawyers and also Congresswoman Kirsten Gillibrand's office has contacted the US embassy to question why they don't understand the paperwork. So now we continue to wait, and hope for the best.
Either way Dillon should be home by the end of the month.
