We received our I 800 Provisional Approval in the mail yesterday. This now signals the National Visa Center to send us a letter approving Wade's Visa to travel back to the States with us with his Chinese name and passport. Once issued (5 to 7 business days) our agency will take it to the US Consulates office in China for their approval (another two weeks). This will then signal the Chinese Childrens Welfare Agency to issue us travel approval (another 2 to 4 weeks ). Once travel approval is granted our agency will match us with other families and we will be told when to arrive in Beijing.
We may only have two weeks to book tickets and get packed!
This timeline looks like it can be anywhere between mid March and mid April.
We visit daycares on Wednesday and I am going to start on Wades room this weekend! We also have already picked up a hiking backpack from Craigslist and have our eye on a used bike trailer in Greensboro ....so he will be ready to go once we get home and get outside with us in the beautiful Carolina Spring!
