Friday, January 6th we received our approval from the NVC (National Visa Center) and then they electronically sent our file to our embassy in China. Then our agency's representative in Guangzhou hand-delivered our paperwork to the U.S. Embassy. They will review our application and make sure everything is in order then they issue an Article V letter. It normally takes exactly two weeks for this step, but because of Martin Luther King Day and Chinese New Year we will be delayed almost a week. All in God's time though :) Once we receive this piece of paper we have ONE more step our Travel Approval. We will then know when we will travel to get Jayden. WooHoo!! We are getting so close.
We are in full planning mode with the Silent Auction/Chili Cook-Off. We have picked a date and a location. Michelle Sherer has been getting many donations for us and I will be forever grateful for all of her help. Also a big thanks to all of you who have donated items or are making chili. I was not sure this was going to be possible, but I shouldn't question God's plan. He continues to provide every step of the way.
