Article 5!

If you'll remember my recent post listing the alphabet soup of hoops our paperwork is going through, you'll know that Article 5 is the last leap before Travel Approval!

Article 5 has been picked up by our agency in China!

Now that we have A5, TA will come anywhere from June 13 to the 27th.  Of course, we are praying for the 13th AND trusting God's timing.

After we receive TA, we could leave for China in as little as 9 days or as much as 14 days.  That puts our "leaving for China" date somewhere between June 22nd at the earliest and July 11th at the latest.  We will be in China for a little over 3 weeks!

When we get TA, our agency sets our Consulate Appointment, which is the appointment we have with the US Consulate in Guangzhou during our final week in China.  From that appointment date, they work back to set our date of departure from the US.  We can't wait to get that news!!

  2. I just found your blog because of a post you left on another re: Kung Fu Panda 2.
    I'm sorry that someone else thought it necessary to completely discount everything you said. I happen to agree with you. Sometimes the adoptive community takes itself WAY too seriously and over thinks things WAY too much. You are totally right, each person is different and they'll decide what and how much they want to know. I know lots of adult adoptees who couldn't care less about finding or meeting their birth parents - and not just saying it because it covers their pain etc... but because they are secure enough in themselves that they don't need to.

    Congratulations on your TA. We're also heading to China on June 16th for our second little girl. We have 4 bio children and we're all God's children.

    You are truly blessed.
