Class B Waiver Request!!!

I can't believe it! We received an email from our social worker today requesting our Class B waiver!!!!


 What does this mean? It means that Joshua had his exit physical in preparation for EP submission! It means that our paperwork is moving! And based on what I have read on the adoption talk forum, it means that we may be submitted for EP (emigration or exit permission) and passport issuance within the next month or so. EP approval can take anywhere from 4-8 weeks, but recently approvals have been taking only 3 weeks. After EP approval and passport issuance, Joshua will have his embassy appearance and interview and then be issued his VISA. This part can take anywhere from 3-5 weeks, though it is usually much, much faster. After that comes our travel call!!! Based on the timelines of other CHSFS/Eastern families, travel call has been coming 2-3 months after the Class B waiver request! If this pattern holds, we could be looking at July for travel rather than August or September!!!

I was literally shaking with shock and excitement after receiving this email. Is this really happening?!?!
