Our TA (Travel Approval) came on November 7!!! It's official...we are going to China for Collins. We leave on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 22, and Gotcha Day will be on Monday, November 26! I can hardly wait.
we were matched on September 6, this adoption has moved at warp speed.
Such a relief to have things move fast after waiting 6+ months for a
referral. The typical timeframe from match to travel is usually about 5
or 6 months. We are going from match to travel in 2.5 months. I never in my wildest dreams thought this adoption would move so fast.
we adopted Lia Kate in 2009, we were an I-600 family (in other words,
adoptions were quicker back then), and we went from match to travel in
exactly 2 months. Since we brought her home and knew we were going to
adopt again, I had been preparing myself to have to look at a sweet
picture for 5 or 6 months before we could hold our next child. So
thankful that was not the case and that we will be on a plane to China
soon! As in, four days soon.
In fact, in exactly a week from now, at this very hour, we will be getting ready to go to the Civil Affairs office to meet CC. Can. Not. Wait.
