Adoption Update


Thought I'd share a little update on where things stand with our adoption. We are still waiting on our I800A approval from our government. This is our final hoop to jump through as far as paperwork goes. We have been fingerprinted and the necessary paperwork for this application is on file waiting to be processed. We could actually hear any time now, but probably won't hear for another week or two. As soon as that approval is in hand, we send it for certification and authentication in Chicago before sending the entire dossier to our agency. After they recheck everything, it goes to China to be approved. I can't even begin to say how glad I'll be when that is out of my hands!


The next piece of news is on the referral front. We received a call this week from our agency about a possible referral. We won't have any real information for at least a couple of weeks, but it sounds like one may be coming down the pike. Unfortunately we have absolutely no information to share now. But please pray for us as we wait-not so patiently!-to see what will unfold...And check back from time to time.

A possible referral sounds very exciting! Best wishes on that front. And I love the bubble pics. Maimie is beautiful. My DD (CL/P) spent sooo much time learning to do this in speech that it is a big deal at our house. Maybe I'll have to get some photos of my girl blowing bubbles:)

How exciting about your referral. We are DTC as well, but had a pregnancy in the middle so we are just waiting for our little one to turn 1 :) Still updating paperwork of course, but I am impatient too. I will be praying for your family-congratulations!

It is so close yet so far away! I hope time goes by quickly and you get your adoption process moving. Those pictures are perfect! How did you get such great shots? Of course it helps to have a beautiful subject for the pics!
