Pictures!

We received these pictures from a family that traveled recently to Xuzhou to adopt a little girl.  We are grateful that they took the time to get pictures for us!

GOT IT!!!!

Our Letter of Acceptance (LOA) came today! We are beyond excited. Today is day 84 since we got our Log-In Date. It has been a very difficult wait for us and we are so excited to move on to the next step in this process. It is an amazing feeling to hold in your hand a single sheet of paper that will forever change the lives of so many. This single document will forever alter our entire family. My hands trembled as I held it. It gives us the choice of saying yes or no to this particular child. Tomorrow, this signed document, along with the paperwork for her visa will be mailed.
Shannon and I will also apply for our visas during this time. Once the three of us have our visas, we will be ready to apply for travel approval. It usually takes about eight weeks to finish this last bit of paperwork and get approved for travel. When we accomplish that, we will schedule our appointments in China. A new countdown begins today. We should travel in 10-12 weeks! Our baby girl will be home for Easter!!!
