Soon and VERY Soon. . .

We will be boarding a plane headed for Seoul. To meet our baby! Because his EP (emigration permit) has been approved!!! This is such exciting news for us. We found out on Friday that it was approved on Thursday, April 28th. He is approved now to leave the country. So, from here, we wait some more. There are a few more steps to take place before we can travel.
  • A travel certificate will be issued
  • A visa physical- conducted by a doctor for the US Embassy
  • P3 given to the embassy from our agency. A packet of info that our agency currently has.
  • A visa interview/ embassy appearance
All of this takes approximately 1 month (give or take a few days or weeks). We anticipate traveling in early June, but of course, don't really know. This process is full of surprises. But, things are looking like Neylan will be home for his first birthday on June 20th. That has been my prayer since we saw him.

So now, things get really busy. We made our to-do list this afternoon of EVERYTHING we would like to get done before we travel. Only 56 items!! We have our work cut out for us, but have a little bit of motivation to get things done. I know there will not be time once we are home with 2 toddlers. I won't have time like I do now for the next 18 years or so, so I better get busy!


  1. Congrats to you guys! I hope he is hope in our arms for his first tol! :)

  2. So so excited! I hope you can get Neylan home well before that birthday!
