Our paperwork was received at the National Visa Center on Monday.
How do I know that? Because I called for three hours Tuesday night before I got through, and sat on hold for 33 minutes to find that out. Adoptive Mom’s are crazy that way.
And this morning – less than three days later – we received our Cable Letter from them!!!!!!!
Our Article 5 is heading to China today, folks. It will be hand delivered to the Consulate on Monday, and hand picked up exactly two weeks to the day later.
Please sit down.
After that is TRAVEL APPROVAL!!!! We will be packing our bags and getting on a big white plane. And we will finally be able to SEE, TOUCH, and HOLD a little girl we fell head-over-heels in love with way back on December 4th of last year.
Yes, siree. Been balling my eyes out all morning. Adoptive Mom’s are crazy that way too.
Yesterday as we were all outside working, playing, and soaking up the incredible sunshine, Grant says to me “Mom, what do you think Eliza would be doing right now if she were here?” And before I could answer he says “Never mind. She would want to be with me. She will be working with me.”
Hope our sweet baby can handle the abundance of love that is waiting for her……because she is going to be one loved little girl.
Stink. There come those tears again!
