US Immigration? Music to my ears

This morning at 1:45AM U.S. Immigration texted me.
I heard: DING! DING!
I'm out of bed, bleary-eyed and stumbling and widely awake.
I read:

"Dear Applicant/Petitioner:
Your USCIS application/petition has been received and routed to the National Benefit Center for processing. Within 7 - 10 days by standard mail you will receive your official Receipt Notice (Form I-797) with your Receipt Number."


 This means that Mama and Daddy have one more step to go! One more clearance! One more appointment! One more set of fingerprinting! And when they approve THAT we are outa here!!!!!!!! One more box to check, one more paper to wait on after this is done.
We are coming, Darling Sweet Precious Baby Girl! It's happening!
Thank you, Jesus!
