We got our Article 5!

WE GOT OUR ARTICLE 5! Our agency let us know this week that our Article 5 was picked up on Monday (4/12) from the US consulate in Guangzhou, China (who issued the Article 5) by an agency rep and sent to Beijing to another agency rep. The agency rep in Beijing has received it and hand delivered it to the CCAA (China Center for Adoption Affairs) on Wednesday (4/14). Hopefully it will only be a couple of weeks before the CCAA issues our travel approval. Once we get travel approval (TA) we will go to China and get our sweet Abbey within a month of receiving TA. Our agency will call us when they get word of our TA and we will start making travel arrangements. We're in the homestretch!!!!!!!

For those who don't know what an Article 5 is, neither do I really. But it's the final approval from the USA that we have their okay to adopt Abbey and bring her home to the good 'ol USA. That when we come to China they will issue Abbey a visa to come to the USA (we have already paid them the fees for this). She will automatically become a US citizen as soon as her little feet touch the ground anywhere in the United States. OK, now I'm getting all weepy.

Will update our blog when we get any more news.
