i800 Approved

Just a quick note today.  We just got the email from our immigration officer that our i800 was approved today.  Next step is for the paperwork to be entered in the Department of State system and it be cabled to the US consulate in China for Brooklyn's Visa to be processed.  We would expect that to happen in about ten days but with the holidays next weekend, it may take a few extra days. 

We are one step closer to bringing Brooklyn home!


  1. Yay! Every step is such a big deal!!! We were waiting to be cabled over Thanksgiving and it did take a little longer for ours. It was 13 days until we had the PDF of our approval letter.

  2. Congratulations on your I-800!! Woo-hoo! I know we've all talked about our adoption showers on RQ so please let me know if you would like some ideas! They're so much fun!!


  3. Yea!! So glad you are on to another step!!

    Your DD is just adorable!! The freaking badgers stuff is awesome.

  4. Nancy (Jane Doe) from over on the March travel thread, and since we seem to have concurrent time lines now, I thought I'd come on over and say that that is the sweetest little smile on your new daughter! She just looks so very precious. Can't wait to follow along on your blog and maybe even meet up in China???
    Now HURRY up NVC cable! We need to go get our girls!
