Kristy on LWB Blog

I found Kristy featured on a Love Without Boundaries blog. A member of their team visited the Shantou City SWI and saw Kristy. Here is the link.

LOI Sent to CWA

We received our Letter of Intent (LOI) yesterday. The letter of intent is a form we fill out to inform the CCAA that we wish to adopt Shan Le Jiao. We have completed the form and sent it next day to Christian World Adoption. CWA will translate the form and send it to China. We will than wait for the CCAA to give us pre-approval (PA). This should take 4 to 6 weeks.

Introducing Kristy

On Thursday March 8th we received a call from our case manager Virginia about a little girl who was available for adoption. After much prayer and consideration we believe God has led us to this very special little girl. Shan Le Jiao is currently living in the Shantou City Social Welfare Institute in the Guangdong Province. She was found abandoned at the Jinyuan Restaurant on April 13, 2005 and after a search could not locate her parents she was admitted to the Shantou SWI. Her birthdate is estimated to be April 10, 2005. Her caretaker calls her Jiao Didi. I will add more details of the adoption as we progress but we expect to travel to China this summer.
