When will we return to the States?

Many of you are wondering when we are returning to the States. We wish we had an exact answer to give you all but there are still some steps we must complete before we can head back. Here's a little overview of what's left:

1) We must wait the 15 day period following our last court hearing to obtain an official court decree, which will hopefully be ready Nov. 7th.

2) Once we have the court decree we can go to the notary with the nuns and do a transfer of custody, we're hoping this can be done the same day we pick up the decree (we don't get to keep our boy at night right now, he still sleeps at the orphanage but once we do the transfer of custody he does not have to return any longer).

3) After obtaining both the court decree and custody we must go get his new birth certificate

4) With the birth certificate and decree we can apply for the passport (passport will take 2-3 days to process)

5) Once we have the passport we can make an appt with the US Embassy for his Visa (Visa will take another 2-3 days to process)

6) Once we have the Visa we are ready to go home! A rough estimate of our return is around the 3rd week of November, God willing.
