I-864 Affidavit of Support For Additional Family Member

Hello,

I guess this question is not Thailand specific, but that's where I'm doing it, so...

We just had our interview and everything went well, except we were notified that we need to provide a couple documents to complete my wife's daughter's visa application.

I completed an I-864 Affidavit of Support for my wife and included all necessary proof and documents. So she's good to go.

But all I provided for my daughter was a copy of my wife's I-864. Looking at the instructions again, I think I see what mistake I made.

According to the i-864 instructions (underlining is mine):

Do I Need to Submit a Separate Affidavit for Each Family Member?
You must submit a Form I-864 affidavit of support for each intending immigrant you are sponsoring. You may submit photocopies if you are sponsoring more than one intending immigrant listed on the same affidavit of support. Separate affidavits of support are required for intending immigrants for whom different Form I-130, Form I-600, or Form I-800 family-based petitions were filed. For instance, if you are sponsoring both parents, each will need an original affidavit of support and accompanying documentation since you were required to submit separate Form I-130 visa petitions for each parent. Often a spouse or minor children obtain visas or adjust status as dependents of a relative, based on the same visa petition. If you are sponsoring such dependents, you only need to provide a photocopy of the original Form I-864, as long as these dependents are immigrating at the same time as the principal immigrant or within six months of the time he or she immigrates to the United States. You do not need to provide copies of the supporting documents for each of the photocopied Form I-864s.
I think this means that I need to fill out the i-864 form again specifically for my daughter (and print and sign it, of course), and include a copy of the I-864 form that I completed for my wife. But that I don't have to include copies of all the supporting documents that I provided for my wife.
Does that seem correct to you? Thank you for any and all help you may offer.

I just duplicate posted here: http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/611806-i-864-affidavit-of-support-for-additional-family-member/

I know this is bad forum etiquette. My apologies.

Edited to add: hmm no views there either. Looks like there's something going on that I don't understand. Like newbie posts have to be reviewed first? Anyway, sorry to anybody that I've inconvenienced. I'll stop posting now and wait and see what happens. Have a nice weekend.
