I don't know when we got our Article 5. However, we were informed that our travel approval came on Tuesday of this week, so obviously we got it before that - and that means we are madly preparing for travel right now. Oscar is going with us to China and the girls are staying home with grandparents.
We got the grant from A Child Waits Foundation, which is awesome! Just in time. We still have to cash out some retirement, but at least it's less than it would have been.
We also have had some last minute contributions that came in after our final fundraiser. So thankful for that financial help - including my aunt and uncle in California - thanks for contributing to our insanity ;).
