Okay, so first with the good news! Friday we received our I800A approval (I-797) in the mail. It was dated 5/28, so why it took a week to arrive from Missouri, I have no idea. Still, good news is good news! Our final documents are on their way to the courier right now to be certified and authenticated. Hopefully our completed dossier will be on its way to China in a week or two.

Rats! We realize that if this particular referral is God's will, that this child will be made available to us when we are able to accept it in a few weeks. If this referral goes to another family, then God has a different child for us. We are confident of that.
