Hey again lol

So not even kidding, 20 minutes after I made that thread about not receiving Packet 4, I received the email.

Now, I scheduled my interview and I got the confirmation email, now I'm just reading what i need to bring and my heart sank at the one requirement. Previous Passports. Yikes, my old passport was thrown in the shredder by my brother when I got my new one. I've never had a previous visa or anything and it was a child's passport but now I'm scared I'll be denied because I don't have it.

Anybody been in my shoes? Or can tell me what to do next? Thanks!
