Big Brown Envelope!

It came today! We got our Big Brown Envelope!!! Just when I was feeling down this came in to pick me up. Now it actually feels real, we are going to be parents.
For those of you who don't know about the big brown envelope, it is an envelope of documents from the U.S. Consulate General in Guangzhou, China.
The package included documents such as:
Application for orphan's visa.
Map of the U.S. Consular Section (In China)
Petition to classify an orphan an immediate family member.
The forms that the doctor in China will need to complete since they require each adopted child must have a complete medical check.
Vaccination Requirements for a foreign Adopted Child.

Congrats! It's fun seeing all the May folks get their envelopes. We don't get them in Illinois, so I'm cheering all the rest of you guys on!
