This morning we received notice that the National Visa Center forwarded our I800 visa information to the US Consulate in China.  The Consulate will review the visa application, and then issue a document that states that everything is in order for the adoption to be completed.  This document is called the Article 5. 

It takes 10 business days for the Article 5 to be completed.  Therefore, since our information will be dropped off tomorrow, it will be picked up on Wednesday, August 15, and then forwarded to Beijing.  After that, we wait for travel approval!

One step closer...


  1. Looks like not many steps left...as in 'light at the end of the tunnel'. After such a long journey it must be difficult to absorb. May it be even sooner than you hope...Judy

  2. Eeeek!!! One more step done indeed. I love the check list on the side by the way, check!

  3. Getting there, getting there, getting there! Now, I want to know about what YOU guys are doing - show us your preparations!! C'mon, spill!
