I800 Approved

I spoke with our officer at NBC (no, not the network) & she said that our I800 has been approved!  It will go to the NVC next & then on to Thailand.  We should be able to start making official travel plans in a week or so!
I am still continuing to pray that our paperwork progresses well through each of these next steps though.
We made a great connection already with another family traveling with us & it helps to know we are both going through this together. 

Please keep us in your thoughts & prayers.

67 days & counting

We are TENTATIVELY scheduled to meet our son for the first time on April 24th.  I really did not think much about this date initially until my FIL recently pointed out that is Easter Sunday.  What a wonderful Easter blessing & what a truly special day this will be for our family.
We are hoping to hear in the next 2-3 weeks from immigration & that we will get our approval with no problems.  Once we get our approval & it is wired to Thailand we should get a "firm" date for our travel.  I am trying to keep myself occupied & whose counting that there are possibly only 67 more days until we meet our son!

Article 16! Counting down the days to meet our son...

We received our Article 16!  We just finished up with all the I800 paperwork tonight and will be sending it off to USCIS in Texas tomorrow.  We are tentatively scheduled for April 27th for our court date in Thailand.  We should meet Trit for the first time on Sunday, April 24th.  We are so excited & just praying & hoping that everything goes smoothly with our paperwork for Immigration & the transmittal to Thailand.
