We are now in the official wait for "TA" the Travel Approval from China. Our letter called an Article 5 was picked up from the US Consulate in Guangzhou on 11/29 and delivered to the CCAA (the adoption authority in China) on 11/30. The CCAA now processes the paperwork and sends our agency our official TA. Once we receive the TA our agency (FTIA) then coordinates between the Children's Institute in Shanghai and the US Consulate to get adoption dates and Visa dates and also coordinate our travel requirements.
We are praying for blessing and favor that the TA comes in quickly and all the arrangements come together so we can bring Lauren home as soon as possible. Will keep updating as we hear anything!
