We just got word that our time to travel to China may be a while from now. The big issue is that Brian is leaving for one year starting next fall. We were hoping to get Elyssa before he left. Now, our time to travel may be 4-6 months from when our Dossier gets to China. That wont happen until a few weeks from now. So, it looks like we may have to wait until Brian can come back on his rest and relaxation leave, which can happen in November at the earliest. Just when it looked like things were going to fall into place prior to his deployment...

We finally received our last piece of paperwork for the dossier on Thursday! Brian attempted to get it notarized on Fort Lewis on Friday afternoon. Wouldn't you know it, they were closed! He'll go back to the legal office on Monday morning to get it taken care of. This will complete our dossier and we'll be able to send it off to China! I'm not sure how long it should take to get our travel approval, but we will apply for our visas as soon as possible so that we can take off ASAP!
