Article 5

The Article 5 letter has been received by the agency in Bulgaria. They will translate and legalize it this week and could have it to the MOJ by next week.
We are missing our son and cannot wait until the day he is home forever.

U.S. Embassy interview

We just got word today that our embassy interview in Bulgaria was successful. For anyone who does not know, the agency in Bulgaria sends a representative for us to be present for the interview. So we were not there in Bulgaria this week.

We do not know details of what next. We do know that they are waiting for the embassy to issue the Article 5 letter. They'll need to translate and legalize this information and then will present it to the Ministry of Justice. We do not know a timeline from there as of yet.

We will keep you posted. Thank you for your prayers and all your support.

I800 news

Today we received the provisional approval for our I800. It took exactly 3 weeks to get here from the day they received our application. One more step closer.

We don't know the process fully, but the next step is for the Bulgarian agency to meet with the US Embassy to submit documents. From there, the US Embassy will issue a letter that will in turn be translated, legalized and sent to the Ministry of Justice in Bulgaria to give consent to continue on with this adoption.

We are excited to be moving forward with the process and pray that all will go smoothly.

We also received $70 more for our adoption in the mail today as well. Thank you, Jesus for Your provision and encouragement!!
