What is Article 5? This is the last step before we get travel approval.
Definition of Article 5: Article 5 Letter - states that you are approved as a suitable adoptive parent and that the child will be able to enter and reside permanently in the United States.
The Article 5 Letter takes 2 weeks from drop off to pick up. Ours was dropped of on 6-5-17 and is planned to be picked up 6-19-17. After that, we wait for TRAVEL APPROVAL!!!!!! Which, could come, if it's fast, the end of the week that we receive our Article 5 Letter or the following week. So, we are SO CLOSE to traveling to China to bring Judah HOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's surreal.
AND, what could I do to help pass the time???? Well, I have made each of our kids a quilt. I finally picked Judah's pattern and will work on this so it is ready for Drew and Anna to take to him when they travel. All about the alligators, I don't know why, I was just drawn to it, thought it was cute and loved the colors. He will be irresistible all wrapped up in it!
