Your case is not yet approved. We will let you know about the final status.
I'm not exactly sure what to make of this. Funny how two itty bitty vague sentences can strike great fear into someone's heart. This has me worried because:
1) ALL the other files that were checked on, along with ours, were approved and are receiving Visas today. Why was ours not approved along with theirs? What factors held us back?
2) It is so damn vague, and in my experience, vague = unlikely/doubtful/putting off dropping the final blow until it's final.
Needless to say, I'm a freaked out, crying mess this morning. I'm just so sad and tired and cannot believe that our file is still the one being held back, not advancing. I'm just so sad and tired that every time I log onto Blogger it's to rant, vent, cry or worry. I'm so sorry for needing so much hand holding. You all who are still here reading all of this, I am sincerely grateful.
My dear husband, concerned about his usually calm wife's fairly hysterical reaction to this overly vague email, called our dear file manager, who is not at all concerned or worried about the email. Possible explanations as to why it has not been approved:
-They processed all the one-child families first (all the other files released had only 1 child.) This would make sense.
-They processed all the thin files first. With two boys, DNA and 20 months of process under our belts, it would not be inconceivable that our files have some heft to them.
My rational side can see the reason in those explanations. My Mama side will always worry.
