|Our I-800A approval|
Today we are one step closer to traveling to China, one step closer to being a family, one step closer to holding our SON in our arms! Today we received our I-800A approval!!
What's that? The I-800A is the US Homeland Security approval for me and Steve to adopt from China! Yes, even though we were approved back in 2007 and 2009, laws have changed and so has the paperwork so we had to go through approval again. The paperwork this time around was MUCH more complicated!
What's the next step? The next step is the I-800 approval which is the approval for us to adopt David, specifically and bring him back to the US. I had the papers ready to send via FedEx, I was just waiting on the approval of us to send with it and we got that today- HALLELUJAH!!!! It should be delivered tomorrow via FedEx.
How much longer? Don't you know I wish it was tomorrow!!! The longest it will be is 16 weeks, I think ( Mid May), and the shortest it will be is late March. Chinese New Year brings a slight hold up but our paperwork may still be on the US side of things at that point.
Thank you for your continued support and prayers!! Having friends and family who are so completely supportive is INCREDIBLE!!!
Thank you, Thank you, THANK YOU!!!!
