It depends on the basis for the "administrative processing." That's generally code for security checks. The U.S. consulate is not usually willing to expedite those. Sometimes the case is simply stuck on someone's desk. So it may be worthwhile to retain counsel to inquire on your behalf noting the circumstances above.

As sympathetic as your case seems, USCIS in all likelihoods will not not expedite AP. Keep checking though and good luck with everything.
