Happy Halloween and Adoption Update

On the adoption front our I800 was approved last Friday.  Now we are awaiting the National Visa Center to send our things to the US Consulate in Guangzhou so we can have our Article 5 drop off, which is part of the visa process.  This will take about 3 more weeks to complete, then we will be waiting for our Travel Approval.  Carsen was a cowboy for Halloween this year.  He had a good time for the little bit of trick or treating he got to do before the rain started.


  1. You are so close now! We should have our approval by tomorrow according the the officer.

  2. We received our I800 on 10/25. Our agency's estimates put our travel more in the late January timeframe....which puts Chinese New Year as a hurdle! It would be wonderful if we could be in China before this!

    We are heading to Wuhan to adopt our 4.5 year old daughter. www.teagenwu.blogspot.com

  3. It has been a long while since I have logged into your blog (I lost my blog roll :( I tried to 'subscribe by email' but it sent me a message saying it's not enabled.

    Anyhow, love seeing Carsen's update!
