I received word on Wednesday from the NVC that they received our file and we got our GUZ#. Today, I received the PDF that our file was submitted electronically (a.k.a. "cabled") to the U.S. Consulate in Guangzhou.

Yesterday I sent all of the remaining documents to our agency, sans the NVC letter, and I emailed our NVC letter to them as soon as I received it today. Everything is in order. WE'RE DONE WITH OUR END OF THE PAPERWORK!!!

We're getting closer to travel!!

Our next step is having our agency's in-country rep. take Emma Claire's immigration petition to the U.S. Consulate in Guangzhou along with our LSC (our referral acceptance). The consulate will review the application and sign-off that it meets all the U.S. requirements and everything is ok to proceed. This step is called the Article 5 letter. It takes exactly two weeks to get issued from when it was dropped off. Once the Article 5 is picked up, it is taken directly to the China Center for Children's Welfare and Adoption (CCCWA) and we wait for Travel Approval (TA)!!!

Fingers crossed that we get a quick TA as the wait can vary!
