Our adoption agency received our travel approval (TA) from the Chinese government today. We are officially approved to travel to China to adopt our daughter. The next step is for our adoption agency to receive from the U.S Consulate in Guangzhou an appointment for a U.S. immigration visa. Our agency requested a consulate appointment for November 15 or next available date. If we get the November 15 appointment, we will need to begin travel on November 3. There are numerous processes that must take place in China before the U.S. Consulate appointment.
