Even More Photos

We received more photos from the family that just adopted Kristy's best friend (this is according to the orphanage). Here is one of them. I have uploaded the rest to Kristy's Photo Log.

Happy Memorial Day - New Photos

Today is day 70 of the wait for our Letter of Acceptance. We expect to receive it in late June or early July. The family that is now in China adopting Kristy's roommate sent us some pictures of Kristy. Here is one of them, the others I will be putting in Kristy's photo blog shortly.

New Expectations

We learned yesterday that we should not necessarily expect a PA. This is actually good news as it appears we will be skipping over this step. Since we already have our dossier in China the CCAA will review our letter of intent and our supporting documents and issue our Letter of Acceptance (LOA). The LOA is a document that we must sign that indicates we are accepting the adoption. After we send the LOA back to China we will receive travel approval (TA). Now about timing. We will probably receive the LOA sometime in July and the TA 2 to 3 weeks after the LOA is returned. If this is the case we will be traveling to China in August which is their hottest time of the year.

8 Weeks and Still No PA!

Sorry for more disappointing news but we are still waiting for our PA. Kristy's friend Le Hua (now Anna) was picked up by her family today. We are hoping they will get to visit the orphanage and get a picture or video of Kristy. The orphanage is really far from Guangzhou so we are not certain they will be able to visit.

Six Weeks and Still No PA!

Yesterday was day number 42 and we are still waiting on the PA. This week is a national holiday in China so we don't expect to hear any news.
