We have received our pre-approval from China! This is much sooner than we expected, and were looking to receive it in the next 2-4 weeks.

What happens next?
*We receive our letter of intent (LOI) from the China Center of Adoption Affairs, and we sign it and send it back. This can take anywhere from two weeks to two months.
*Then we wait to receive our travel approval. This can happen anywhere from 1-3 months after we send our letter of intent.
*We travel 3-4 weeks after receiving our Travel approval!
We received a new picture of little Mackenzie, as well! She is so cute, and looks happy and healthy. I can’t wait to get to her!
