Final Step!

It feels like it has been an eternity since we started the adoption process for Michael! I was beginning to think that I would never be able to write this post, BUT THE TIME HAS FINALLY ARRIVED! As of last night, not only do we have confirmed appointments at the Consulate, but we have purchased our plane tickets as well! Now we can check off #18 on our process checklist and move onto the final step….TRAVELING TO BRING OUR MICHAEL HOME!!! I guess this means that we better start packing!!

Travel Approval!

Drum Roll Please...our Travel Approval has arrived from China! This means that the CCCWA (Chinese Center for Children’s Welfare and Adoption) and the United States government have put a final approval on all paperwork and given us permission to travel to bring Michael home! Our agency is in the process of scheduling our appointments at the Consulate in Guangzhou. We will hopefully get confirmation from the Consulate later this week and WE WILL BUY OUR PLANE TICKETS!!! Check off #17 on our process checklist! We are less than a month away from holding our little Michael!
