Today, I got an e mail saying that our I 800 had been approved. The interesting thing is that I emailed USCIS yesterday just to make sure they had received our application. I got a nice note back saying that she had just gotten it and would review it in the next few days. It makes me wonder if I'd not e mailed them, would I still have gotten the approval today??
Now, that approval, some other paperwork and money have to go to the US Consulate in Guangzhou. Then, they issue the "Article 5" which than goes to C**A, who then issues our TA. Whew! Then, we can travel, unless it is later than the end of Aug, which would mean we will have to wait until November. I'm praying that the Lord will let us go in September. We'll just have to wait and see what His answer is. It is going to be close. All of the time lines are estimates, and it could move faster or slower. Anyway, I'm just thankful that we're one more step closer!
