Adoption Process Update Time!!

Well, my friends, exciting times here in la casa de Meledeo! We received our Letter Seeking Confirmation (LSC) from the Chinese Government yesterday afternoon and our amazing caseworker got it out via FedEx overnight to us with all the other necessary paperwork so we could submit our I-800 (petition to classify You You as a U.S. Citizen) paperwork to USCIS TODAY!. I'll give a quick run down of the remaining steps below. We praise our Father in Heaven for bringing You You into our lives and working in this process. We ask for your continued prayer for quick movement through this remainder of the process so we can get over to China and get our boy! Also, please keep You You, his foster family and us in your prayers as we all prepare for great transition.

October 17, 2012 - LSC received

October 18, 2012 - I-800 paperwork sent to USCIS

Now we wait for the provisional approval from USCIS which will come to us via the mail from USCIS.

Then a letter will be sent to the U.S. Consulate in China from the National Visa Center (NVC) so that they can send the Article V confirmation letter to CCCWA so that the CCCWA will issue our Travel Approval (TA)! Once we receive our TA, we will plan our trip and get our travel Visas. Our caseworker estimate somewhere from 2.5 to 3 months before we will travel over there, we just have to wait and see how quickly every thing is processed!

Grace is getting excited and keeps asking when we will be going to get You You. Everytime I say we are going to see so and so and she says, "and we will get You You?" It's so sweet!!
