I have been sick in bed this week and just got up for a bit to work on adoption stuff. It's a good thing I did because I found out we got our I800 approval on Monday, the letter should arrive today. I called and talked with our dossier specialist at the agency and she thinks it is reasonable to assume we will still travel in May. I sure hope so because airfare to China DOUBLES at the end of May and into June. Paying over $2000 for airfare is not in my plans. Pray for us that all the paper work will go quickly! Thanks!
