We got an e-mail from Great Wall today saying our travel approval (TA) had arrived.

We could be traveling by the end of August - the big thing now is we need USCIS to get us our new I-171H. Our current I-171H expires before we would travel, and we need the I-171H for our consulate appointment. We've gotten our fingerprints updated, we just need the I-171H to arrive.

We will start in the morning bugging whoever we have to, in order to get it. Any good vibes and prayers from people to get USCIS to moving would be appreciated.

Also, I've added a photo here of the items we had Angela from send Jacob in a care package. Hopefully, the orphanage workers are at least showing him the pictures of us so we won't be total strangers when we travel.

Congrats on your TA!

I'm curious - are those items ones that you picked out yourselves and are having them send for you? Or is that the picture she sent you of the package she put together based upon your order?

We ordered a care package to be sent as a birthday present, and wondered about long it took to hear back from them about it being completed and delivered?

Hey Gang. The items are what we asked Angela to buy. We told her specifically a panda and then we told her a toy car (because our update we received said Jacob's favorite toy is a toy car).
