CABLED

What does that mean anyway??? That's what I wondered when I heard the word, cabled.. until it came time for us to be cabled. This new process with adoption has been full of learning new things and new words- I thought Cate's adoption was hard and complicated! After we received LOA, we had to submit more forms to immigration and wait for our I800 approval- that happened on April 1- Then they send our information to the National Visa Center for processing who then cables it to the US Embassy in Guangzhou. That happened this past Friday! YAAAA! Now, we wait for our Article 5 to be prepared and picked up- that takes about 2 weeks, and then we wait for TA!! We are so close, and I can hardly contain my joy. I said in the very beginning of Cai's adoption that I would make a point of giving God all of the glory for each step, because He, after all, allowed us to begin this journey for Cai. He has brought us the peace and patience that we have needed to make it this far. We have been praying for Cai, and also have the peace that she is being protected and prepared for this huge transition. Also, I believe with all of my heart that every step in the right direction, every approval we have been given, is directly from Him. And we will forever be thankful.

Yes, this adoption journey has been quite the learning experience, hasn't it? At least we had each other and other great adoption friends to learn with and lean on every step of the way. I know your cable letter has to be arriving any day!!!!
