Immigration Approval

Well, we are one small step closer to Rylie!

Today, we found out that July 8th we had our Immigration paperwork approved (aka I800, aka Petition to Classify Convention Adoptee as an Immediate Relative)!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hooray! Oh, how I hate government paperwork!

Anyway, now we wait for the National Visa Center to receive our file, forward it to the American Consulate in China, and we have to receive a letter indicating that it has been sent. Once we get this letter, we send our next batch of paperwork to our includes a bunch of copies of stuff and agreements as well as Rylie's Visa application. Once that's done, all we have left is applying for our visas and awaiting our Article 5/Travel Approval, and appointment with the American Consulate in China....and off we will go! It will still be a few weeks or perhaps another 2 months or so for all this to happen, but it is SO nice to see some progress!

Rylie, we're on our way!!!!!!!!!!!

We also requested an update on Rylie, but have yet to hear anything back. We asked a few questions about her development, how she eats/drinks, her current measurements and for some updated pictures. We're crossing our fingers we get a response!
