We got our I 800 approval last week!
What that means is we are now filling out a few more items and then we hope to have Beijing give us travel permission in the next 5 weeks. Its going to be very close as we look to finish this before our visa expires.
Also we are selling off all our stuff here as we will not be seeking to rent another apartment here during our time in the States. Lots of transition. Lots of decisions to be made. But we are grateful He has carried us!
