Article 5

We got the LOA corrected and our I800. Then I did the DS-260 so we could get her SS Card. Now we are waiting on the Article 5 from China. We will then get our TA (travel approvel), make travel plans, get our visa's and go on a 2 week trip to China. We are at the "hurry up and wait stage" (again!) but we are at least getting closer! :)

Finally a little progress!

We'll, we got our LOA from China and they had Aria marked as a boy. Last time I checked, she was missing that bit. So to get it corrected took another 2 1/2 weeks on top of the 63 day that we already waited. Well, so there we were not being able to do anything. I finally got the correct one, sent it to USCIS to finish the I800 process. We were approved!!! Now I have to get the NVC letter, file for a DS-260, wait for our Article 5 from China, make travel plans and apply for our visa's. After all of that is done we can travel to China to pickup our sweet little girl!
Hoping to have her before Christmas, but not holding my breath. It seems like if something can go wrong, it has.

Well, it looks like I will be doing an amendment on our home study which just means changing a few things, but there will not be a fee. Woohoo!!! We still have to do the Supplement 3 because of the age difference and that is fine. Things are falling into line. Lets just hope that we get our LOA from China soon! I am SOOO ready to have my little girl here!!! :)

Update ?

Might have to update home study and send a supplement 3 with our I800 because Aria is not yet 2yrs old. Will be calling the officer at USCIS to see if I really need to do this because the LOA has not be done yet. Aria might be so close to being 2yrs old when the LOA is issued that we may not need to do the update. Lets hope for no updates!!!
