Puzzle update and when do we travel?

We ONLY have 76 more pieces....and our puzzle will be DONE!!!!



There is still time to join in the FUN!!

I found this GREAT explanation of the last few steps to Little Caboose on a fellow adoptive mom's blog. She said I could copy it - since there is no way I could have said it better:

So when do we travel???

"There are still a few more steps until we get our travel approval...

We have received approval from US immigration, and they will forward their approval to the National Visa Center.

Then the National Visa Center will send us a letter saying that they have received our file from USCIS (immigration). This letter will be forwarded to the US consulate in Guangzhou.

Then the US consulate will issue what's called our article 5, which will be picked up by our agency and sent to Beijing, and delivered to the CCCWA.

And finally, after all of that, our travel approval will be issued!"
(Typically that all takes about a month...so in about a MONTH we should know when we are traveling to CHINA!! Usually families leave 2-3 weeks after receiving travel approval)

 Little Caboose....HERE WE COME!!!

(Which makes me feel REALLY excited and also throws my stomach into KNOTS immediately!!)
Blessings, Sandy
