Let's start with the good news. We got updates on both of our babies!!! Wen has gained 3 teeth, 7 cm in height, and a tiny bit of weight. He is all smiles in both of his pics. One he is swinging and the other he had a sticker on his forehead lol...Adaline has gained 4 teeth and that's all. I am not sharing our pictures of them today because hers breaks my heart. She looks so very sad, almost lifeless....scared and alone. I can't wait to hold her and show her love. To see a smile on her face.
Today we are waiting for their visa approval information to be cabled to the consulate in China. From what I understand (this may be kinda right) once this is done, we wait (hopefully couple of days) for our Article 5 to be issued. THEN two weeks later the Article 5 is picked up and delivered to CCAA , this is when THE wait for TRAVEL APPROVAL begins. This can take a few days to a few weeks. We would love for Travel Approval to come quickly. If these last few steps take the normal amount of time we will travel in January. If these steps are QUICK, we will be in China for Christmas. No matter the timeframe, WE will trust him!!! I have to remind myself of this 1,897 times a day right now. Thank you Lord for trusting us with these babies and this process!!!
