Finally GOOD NEWS!!!

 This little girl is READY to go get her brother!!!

I'm so excited to update that in the last week, we received our USCIS approval, NVC approval & the PDF we needed!  Then last Friday our agency dropped off our Art 5 with an expedite request and to my utter shock and amazement, the consulate issued Art 5 last night while I was sleeping!  Wahoo!!!

Friends, we will SOON be going to China!!  So now there's one thing we are waiting for and that's our TA!  It is our official approval from China's adoption affairs to go get our son!  We are hoping that we receive a medical expedite on that as well, but if we don't, the general timeframe is 2 weeks.  However, with the new CCCWA system backup, many have waited almost twice that long. 

We pray to receive our TA as soon as possible, knowing that God's got this.  We surrender to his timeline. :)

Oh there is so much to do, I can't even begin to get into it!!  Pray for us!!  We're hoping to get a consulate appointment that allows us to travel mid-July for Ben but we need that TA before the consulate closure on July 10th!!

Thanks for stopping by!
Fannie, Matt, & Katie
