"Submit an immigrant visa application, Form DS-260 , to the Embassy or Consulate responsible for processing immigrant visa applications for the child’s country of origin. If everything has been done in the required order and the child is likely eligible to immigrate as a Convention Adoptee, the Embassy or Consulate will issue a letter, called the “Article 5/17 letter”, notifying the central authority of the child’s country of origin that the child appears to be “eligible to enter and permanently reside” in the United States following the completion of the adoption or guardianship in the child’s country of origin."

Now that we have a better understanding of that, TA is next and boy are we ready and also not ready-haha. Adoption nesting is a real thing-and it is in full swing. Every corner of the house has been/is/will be cleaned. Bunk beds are assembled. Packing list is L-O-N-G! Visas are submitted. Prayers are being prayed. We are so excited.
