Kate's Passport

I should have mentioned in my previous post that the reason we are still here in Chongqing is that we were waiting for Kate's Chinese passport, without which we can't (well, we can, but she can't...) leave Chongqing. It takes five days from the time everything is registered to get that, and we got it today. It is under her Chinese name, given by the orphanage, and she will be traveling back to the U.S. under that name, once the U.S. Consulate issues her a visa to enter the U.S. She will travel as a Chinese citizen, but will be granted U.S. citizenship as soon as we land on U.S. soil, which will be in San Francisco on Thursday, April 23rd.

Just FYI...
