We have a submission date. A package arrived at our agency today with a letter from China that had our name on it and a submission date of Dec. 8. This is the date that our paperwork was officially submitted to the center in China. That means the official waiting begins as of Dec. 8. Here is what the next few months look like from here...
1. Waiting for Letter of Confirmation. This comes from China and could take 3-5 months but right now is running about two months. (You know this momma is praying like crazy that continues.)
2. Seeking the second half of our US immigration. This comes from the US government and takes 2-4 weeks.
3. Waiting for Travel Approval This is the golden ticket to China issued by their government. This takes 4-6 weeks.
4. Traveling to meet our baby girl!! This could be about three weeks after our golden ticket arrives.
If everything goes as planned, we should be traveling in May/June. I simply can't wait!! Oh to hold that baby! Thanks so much for your prayers. They are priceless to me!
