Journey: last mailer sent

Off to China!
We are officially out of the Referral Phase of our adoption~ 5 long years later!!! On Tuesday I once again waited for the mailman to come (5:30- yeesh!) so our I800 could be copied and put in with the other papers to be sent to GWCA. This is the last package we had to send to complete the adoption- hard to believe! Everything we've been working on is now sent to the US Consulate in Guangzhou and once things are checked off and approved it goes to the CCCWA.
So, on Friday everything was cabled to China. Next Tuesday, hopefully, our USCIS approvals and China approvals along with David's visa application will be taken to US Consulate. It's usually a 3 week turn around for the Article 5 to be approved, get to our agency and THEN we will officially be waiting on Travel Approval. I have a feeling the next few weeks are going to go really s-l-o-w-l-y. Luckily there are lots of things happening including Steve's birthday, my baby shower at school, and spring break!! You should see my list for spring break- it's crazy long!!
Below is a picture of David's room... it's coming along and we did some work in it today. Another post about that coming up!!
Do you see the Baylor Bear ready to welcome David?
