USCIS Pittsburgh

We interrupt this regularly scheduled vacation broadcast to report that USCIS Pittsburgh is fabulous! Why did we have to wait till adoption #2 to confirm that Baltimore is the absolute bottom of the pit and Pittsburgh rocks?

I won't bore you with all the details except to say that NO ONE looked at us as potential terrorists, no one was rude to us, we were in an out on schedule with PLEASANT SMILES! Yes, 99% of the Baltimore USCIS office should be shipped via chain gang to Pittsburgh for courtesy lessons.

AND... we received word today that our adoption tax credit (applied for in March) will be sent to us in the next 6-8 weeks. Can we charge the IRS for interest?


  1. I am thrilled that you had such a wonderful experience. We always had pleasant people in Charleston, WV. All 6 times....

    And wow, it took you long enough to get that tax credit back. We sent ours in the last of Feb, and got our return a month later. It is spent.

  2. Congratulations! On both good news items.
