Long Time Coming

 We have worked and worried and waited and wanted to travel for so very long but today we see the light at the end of the tunnel.  We received our Article 5 notice this morning from the US consulate in China.  This is the last pre-adoption step for the US government step. We now wait for travel authorization from the Chinese agency which should be here within about 2 weeks.  Then once we have an appointment date with the US consulate in China, we can make travel reservations.  I anticipate that we will travel late February or early March.

Lia & Sean are waiting in China and are just as excited and anxious to make the connection  as we are.  Fresh photos do a mom & dad's heart good.


  1. They look like wonderful kids and like they're getting to go to a wonderful family. Congrats on getting so close to the end.

  2. Hooray! I'm so glad that you got your article 5!!! What wonderful photos!!!
