What's Next?

So, what comes after LOA? Well, we sent our I-800 to immigration last week and now, we wait for our I800 approval ( it's always something.) We did not enjoy our first experience with immigration when we waited for our I800A. It was long and complicated and there was a point when I was unsure if it would all work out. But God is good all the time and all the time God is good. So..... from the moment that came, I began praying for this step we are in now. We have been praying for our officer and for all of the people who handle our paperwork, because let me tell ya- it apparently matters who handles your paperwork! After we receive this approval, it will be cabled to the US Embassy in Ch*na where they will issue our Article 5 ( I have no clue what this is, but is apparently a big deal), and then our TA ( travel approval). And all of this should take place within a couple of months. We are still hopeful to travel around the end of May. We would appreciate your prayers so much. This is such a big process and we are placing it in the hands of our much bigger God.

I'm adding you to my prayer list that all your paperwork finds favor with every desk it crosses!

We're still praying for a speedy LOA...maybe next week! Today is day 54 for us! :)

OK, I am so wondering if we had the same officer at USCIS.....wow, we had a long process as well....8 full weeks. I sure hope this process is much smoother and faster :)
