And it's OFF Already!

Well that document wasn't in our hands long!  The signed LOA and I-800 documents, along with a few other things, are off to our agency.  They should receive them on Monday and will likely send them off to immigration first thing Tuesday.  I think it's now time for me to read up on what happens next because this is the part I am not familiar with.  I do know that there are 3-5 more steps and that the wait for each is anywhere from a week to a month and then we are assigned our Travel Approval (TA) and given a Consultant Appointment (CA) in Guangzhou, China.   It's getting really real and exciting now! :)   


  1. I'm so glad I've found your blog. I can't think of anything more exciting than watching families grow through adoption. I saw that your DTC date was on my daughter's birthday! Oh, how I would love to be going through this process again!

  2. At least this part of the process seems to move quicker - and it's not like the LOA wait where we had no clue where we were in the least now we will have our 800 approval, Article 5, etc to check off! 2-3 months & we will be in China!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
