We Are DTC!

That's Dossier to China for those outside the international adoption community. All of our paperwork is on its way to Beijing. We now wait for our LOA (Letter of Acceptance). For Kristy it took around 75 days. This could take longer but we won't know for sure when we will hear from China.

Family Day 2009

Two years ago our little empress joined the family. She has grown from this quiet little girl who did not understand our language or what it was to have a family into a talkative, funny, active pre-schooler. Here are a few then and now pictures. Her jie jie's have grown up tremendously in two years as well.

Adoption Progress

I did not realize that it has been so long between blogs. Kelly is on her way to her second camp in two weeks and Kourtney leaves for her camp next Saturday. We are very close to completing our adoption paperwork. The documents are at the Chinese Consulate in Washington, DC. They have told us that they will be sending the documents back to us in the middle of this coming week. From that point our agency will send them to Beijing for final approval. We expect a 90 day wait for that approval. If that is the case we will likely travel in November. Walking the Great Wall will be different in November than July!
