Good news! We are getting very close to travel approval. The process from finalizing our agreement to adopt John with the Chinese government until now has taken just over five weeks. We expect Article 5 around June 11th, then it will be approximately 2-4 weeks until we receive our travel approval. This means that we are likely to travel in late July or early August.
We have initiated a new fundraiser which offers $50 restaurant gift cards to donors for a $20 donation, and our adoption fund will receive $10 for each such purchase. For those of you who love to go out to eat, check it out at
