So, here's the status on our adoption as of Friday. We were "cabled" on Friday, which means our information has been sent to the US Consulate in Guangzhou. We need a pdf verification of being cabled before Cara's visa stuff can be turned in over in China, and China only accepts paperwork on Mondays and Thursdays. I asked for the pdf, but was told that I could not have it emailed to me. This means I will hopefully have the info I need for Cara's stuff to be turned in on Thursday rather than Monday, which kinda sucks. Then we wait for article 5 and travel approval. I just really, really want to travel before November, but I have a sinking feeling that it might not happen due to all of the holidays in China during the month of October.
Meanwhile, on the I800A renewal front: yes, both fingerprints and I800A expire on 10/13/10. This means we need a homestudy update, 2-supplement 2's, and a supplement 3 filed with USICS. Our social worker is coming on Tuesday and I'm hoping for a super-quick homestudy update so we can get all of this turned in ASAP. It shouldn't be that hard; especially since NOTHING has changed for us in the last 15 months. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
