I800 Approval

Today I received great news that our I800 has been approved! Now.... all we need is our permission to travel letter from China and we can make the appointment for our daughter's visa at the US Consulate in Guangzhou.  Our coordinator spoke to the CCAA a couple of days ago and they said that our travel permission is being completed and should go out by the end of this week.  
The anticipation is killing us.... next week we hope to finalize everything and purchase our airline tickets!

Our baby in China

Well, it has finally happened.  In September 2008, after two and half years of waiting, we got a referral for a beautiful baby girl at Maogang SWI, in Maoming City, Maogang Province, China.  
Now, after 2 months of paperwork, we are waiting for formal approval from USCIS and our Permission to Travel Letter from China.  
If all goes well, we will be traveling in about a month.  What a wonderful holiday gift!
