The US Department of State has changed their processing time. Instead of processing documents while you wait, it will now take 3 - 5 business days.
Thank you so much for allowing us
to be part of your adoption journey. We really enjoy what we do and the people we serve. You've made the years just FLY by!
In March of 1996, folks on the APC (Adoptive Parents of China) list asked me to become their personal courier. They helped me set my prices, and even came up with my name! I agreed to start this courier business to be able to quit my job as a secretary and be home more for my "homemade" daughter and our new baby from China. A few years later, my husband Steve joined me as "The Assistant to The Assistant Stork" and we have served the adoption community ever since. As adoptive parents, we know how important it is to get your documents and visas processed quickly and correctly. We will make sure all your paperwork is treated as if it were for our very own adoption.
We now also serve the business community as well. Please consider us for all your document and visa needs.
