Another Approval!

Hey all, did you wonder if I had fallen off the planet?
Nope, still here.
I do hope you all had the most wonderful of holiday seasons.
We sure did.
On to the new year that has gotten off to a great start for us. We even just got today another approval we have been waiting for.
Our I-800 approval!
This means that our government says it's okay with them if we make Gavin a U.S. citizen as soon as his little size 10 feet hit the ground. yay!
This also means that we now have all the U.S. side of things approved (well until we get to the U.S. Embassy in China with Gavin in tow for his medical tests to be done).
Now our stuff (more paperwork) goes back to China one last time and we are waiting for just two more things,
#1) an Article 5 (I'm still not clear what this really is) and then
#2) our Travel Approval
Did you get all that, TWO more things and we get to board our family of five on an airplane to make us a family of six!
Happy Tuesday to you all ;)

Happy news for sure! Praying that the rest of your approvals come soon and that you'll be headed to bring Gavin home before you know it!

Praise the Lord!!!! This is great news! We are so excited for your family and look forward to the day when we get to meet the new member of the TenKley family. The girls were thrilled that they each received a picture of Gavin on Sunday. Keep the updates coming!
