Officially Awaiting Travel Approval

We were notified by our agency today that their in country facilitator had picked up our Article 5 from the US Consulate and forwarded it to the CCCWA.  That means were officially waiting on the final step, which is Travel Approval, then we will be able to travel to meet Carsen!  Travel approval usually takes 2-4 weeks, then travel typically occurs 1-3 weeks later.  We really, really hope to travel in early-mid September.  It is really starting to feel real, like this might really happen.  We are getting anxious and excited, trying to get some things prepared ahead of time so we are runny around like crazy at the last minute.

  2. love watching your progress!!!
