Our I-800 Provisional approval is here! We got it in the mail today but it is dated Nov 18th. This is another very big step in our process and brings us even closer to our son!
Our next steps are as follows:
USCIS will issue a Provisional Approval for the I-800 (done Nov 18th) and will forward it to the NVC (National Visa Center). (THIS PART IS DONE FOR US ALREADY Nov 18th)
The NVC will send a notification in the mail that the I-800 Provisional approval has been forwarded to the US Consulate-Guangzhou- this takes about a week after approval
The Adoption Unit will issue an "Article 5" letter , this process requires 2 weeks. The Article 5 verifies that our adoption case meets all of the Hague requirements.
CCAA will issue a Travel Appointment (TA) and mail it to our agency- about 2-3 weeks after Article 5
We are down to the last few steps before we get the great TA that allows us to head on out of here and go get LUKE!!!!!!!
We are sooo excited, God is surely moving in our lives at the moment!
Cant wait to bring him home!
- My name is Tracy and I am married to an amazing man, his name is Thomas! We are a busy family that is always on the go between church, school, work and sports.... we are not a sitting around kind of family. We have 4 amazing children and are working on bringing home Elias to make 5. My hubby is Deaf and I am a sign language interpreter,we are very involved in the Deaf community and are excited to be adding another Deaf member to our family. Our kids, Aaron-19, Luke-11, Tommy-10 and Paige-5 are anxious for their new brother to be home. This is our second adoption and we are learning more everyday to lean on God, this journey is already strengthening our faith! We are working on learning how to turn everything over to God and know that He has a perfect plan and all will happen in His time! Good things come to those who wait.
