Suddenly I’m a mess.
I can’t really think straight.
And it’s only going to get worse.
Our Article 5 is HERE!
Okay, not really here. It’s in China. Probably resting comfortably on someone’s desk at the CCAA right now.
For those of you, like my mom, who don’t know what the heck an Article 5 is, let me explain…
Once you get your LOA, your acceptance is sent off to USCIS who then issues a Provisional Approval. Then that’s forwarded to the National Visa Center, who then cables it to Guangzhou. Where it gets put into a stack at the US Consulate to wait it’s turn to get an official signature. Then it is handed off to the agency’s in-China rep who then forwards it to the CCAA.
That’s an Article 5. I think.
And that is why we’re celebrating today. Our little approval has come a long long way, baby.
Now we wait for TA, which will, God-willing, arrive in 2-4 weeks.
I’m hoping for 2.
