We have finally been able to make some progress this week. All of our paperwork has been notarized, county certified, state authenticated and is now on it's way to the Chinese Consulate's in Houston and Chicago!
My awesome friend Kristie was a big help getting our Michigan documents state authenticated and my friend Jean was here for a visit and drove to the capital (Montgomery) with me to get our Alabama paperwork authenticated. I sure do appreciate you both - I am so lucky to have you in my life!
This is big progress for us - it means that all of our paperwork has finally come in, been completed, signed and state sealed!!!!! Yay!
The next step is to get the paperwork back from the consulates and forward them on to our agency for translation and then on to China. Hopefully this will all happen in the next two weeks. Yesterday everyone that had Feburary log in dates got their Letters of Confirmation (LOC), Travel Approval (TA) should follow in about two weeks. Soooooooooo... maybe mid July we could get our LOC!
