Final Post From China: We Have a Visa

We're getting packed up. This is my last post before I pack up all my cords and crap. I've offloaded the last of the pictures from the gran's cameras, all our many purchases are packed and all I have left to do is the hand luggage. We have to have our bags outside our rooms by 4:30 a.m. tommorrow for a 5:30 a.m. departure to the airport.

Today we all went to the U.S. consulate to swear an oath of truthfulness in order to be able to receive the entrance visa for our bundles of joy:

Dada's U.S. Entry Visa

This is in her Chinese passport, under which she will travel to the United States:

At this time we also received our official certificate of adoption:

These are the critical papers, along with a packet of forms in a sealed envelope, that we need to bring Dada back to the U.S. of A. The packet of forms will be opened by Passport Control in San Francisco. It contains whatever paperwork is needed to make her a full citizen.

So all we have to do now is survive the 24 hours of plane travel from Guangzhou to Austin...
