Adoption Update

January 26, 2015

Happy snowy Monday! Things have been moving along with our adoption, and I thought I’d give you a little update on where we are at in the process, in case you are interested.

We are currently in “LOA”, which means that we have been approved by China to adopt our little guy. From what I’ve heard, this process can take up to three months, but our LOA (letter of approval) was processed only six days after we were matched, which was really surprising, and we are so thankful!

So now we are waiting to get our immigration papers (I-800 forms) approved. We should get them in the next week. Some things we need to work on:

-Get immunized

-Continue to work on our adoption training and education. We need to have 10 hours completed by the time we travel, and there are some books that our agency requires us to read.

-Get fingerprints done again

-Send a care package to our little boy

-Meet with the doctors at the cleft palate clinic

-Start visa paperwork

It’s looking like we will be traveling in April, which does not seem that far away! The nesting instinct is kicking in, and I’m getting the urge to organize everything in sight. I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it before, but Avery will be traveling with us to China and she is so excited!
