Home Study Amendment Has Arrived

Our home study amendment has been returned from the Chinese Embassy in Washington, DC. This is just a statement specifically saying that we wish to adopt Shan Le Jiao. Our agency will send this to China to be included with our dossier that has been there since July of last year. We are still waiting on our PA!

5 Weeks and Still No PA!

There's not much to report. Our PA has still not arrived. We are also still waiting for the home study amendment from the Chinese Embassy. All things will work out in God's time.

Still No PA!

Yesterday was four weeks since our Letter of Intent went out. We have not received our Pre-Approval. There is no concern that we won't get it we are just really anxious to get to this step. Meanwhile our home study amendment is being authenticated at the Chinese Embassy in Washington, DC. Hopefully that will be returned to us by the end of the week so our agency can send it onto China. This will be needed before we receive a Letter of Acceptance or our Travel Approval.

Happy 2nd Birthday!!

April 10th, 2007 is Shan Le Jiao's 2nd birthday. We were not able to send her anything since we don't have our PA (per-approval) yet. We hope to have our PA in 1 to 3 weeks. We will send her a birthday package after we receive the PA.

New Pictures

We received new pictures of our little girl today. They are posted in the left side. One is a picture of her with her Ayi (we are assuming) from December of 2006. The one in the toy car is the most recent photo. The picture of her and another little girl is her friend who will be living in east Tenneessee.
