Spotlght: Adoption Update!





I realize that I don't write much about where we are on the adoption timeline...so here is a teeny update!

We received our LOAs for Keith and Crickett on July 22nd. Our 800 approval was Aug. 12 and we received our NVC cable pdf letter on Aug. 24. Our Article 5 will be picked up Sept. 8 (this Thursday!) and then we wait for the CCCWA (China adoption authority) to issue our Travel Approval!

I hope those dates are helpful for any of you who might be in the adoption process. For anyone reading who is officially confused by what all this means, basically it means that we have 2 months or less until we travel to get our babies!

Exciting news! Have many travelers will be going this time?

Kristi said...

Two months ~ or LESS...
Praying for the or less part. :)
Can I go back with you?
And did I ever send you the fifty or so shots I took of those two darlings when they opened their care packages?

Hannah said...

As long as it means you'll be in China AFTER October 19th, I'm happy. Aren't I evil, hoping that you don't get TA crazy early?

So excited for your family!!!!!!

Congrats on another adoption. I would really like to talk to you sometime about your experience with bilateral club hands. We will be bringing our almost four year old daughter (bilateral club hands, missing thumbs and underdeveloped shoulder joint) in Jan/Feb and want help knowing how to be best mom possible to my beautiful and brave daughter. I am sorry I had to post this but I didn't know how to contact you.
