A Smile on my FB Wall

It's been a very long day and I will explain more tomorrow
but this little face on my FB wall made me smile big~
Thank you Helen!

An adoption Update~
We received our I800 Provisional Approval in the mail today
I800- An application to have your child viewed as an immediate family member.
so we are officially waiting for...
NVC- National Visa Center- Where you petition for a Visa. This group then cables the US Embassy in China to let them know the petition has been approved.
Article 5- is the consulate pre approving your child for an immigrant visa.
TA- Travel Approval- You are approved to travel to China to get your child!
CA- Consulate Appointment- The date of your appointment at the US embassy to finalize your adoption
GOTTCHA or Forever Family Day- The day you meet your new child!
