Change priority date.

Asked over 1 year ago - Bronx, NY

My I-130 was mailed before my 21st birthday, however, USPS lost my package and I am about to turn 21 in 2 days. I was hoping for my age to be freeze since my US parent was filing on my behalf. Is there a way to change my priority date after uscis receives a new application since the first on was LOST.
