I'm sure this is the only period of my life when I will say this, but I love it when I see letters from Homeland Security in our mailbox!
Today we received notice of the Provisional Approval of WanYing's I-800. Basically, this is USCIS (Citizen and Immigration Services) saying that we can adopt WanYing and bring her into the U.S. Or, if you'd like to read it in their words, "USCIS concludes that Wan Ying Ling will
qualify as a Convention adoptee under secion 101(b)(1)(G) of the Immigration and Nationality Act ("INA"), as amended, if you complete the proposed adoption or obtain custody of Wan Ying Ling for the purpose of emigration and adoption."
Now the U.S. Consulate in China issues an Article 5 document to the Chinese government confirming that WanYing can enter the U.S. and then China invites us to come and get our daughter! Can't believe that we should be traveling in 2 months(ish)!
And if you want all of the gory details, our full timeline has been updated.
