I am in Austin, TX this week at a convention, but I wanted to post a quick and over due update.
Chianna's i600 (Visa Application) is being filed today in Vietnam! This is and important step getting us that much closer to traveling. All the paperwork is completed on the Vietnamese side of things, we are just waiting on final approval on the i600 and then notice for travel!
We needed to get her medical report translated and it was an extremely difficult process, evidently it was very hard to transcribe word for word all the medical terms, so the orphanage took her to a clinic for a new medical report - this clinic specifically translates medical reports, so that is how we had to work around it and got it done!
So it looks like we are in the final stages of the process here. Hopefully we will be traveling within the next 3 - 5 weeks, but no way to be sure exactly when it will be.
Stay tuned for details and keep all those positive thoughts coming our way! We are not too far away from our little girl now!
And as my friend Jenn commented - "The Final Countdown"IS TOTALLY playing in my head!
