Ten Days…

Exactly twelve months ago, in March of 2012, we decided we were ready to adopt again, and we signed on with an agency… we started our home study, and started gathering our dossier documents.

Seven months ago, in August (2012) we knew we were only a couple months away from having our dossier done, and I was looking through the waiting children on our agency’s website, and I saw our son’s picture. I was emailing back and forth with our caseworker about our paperwork, and mentioned that I thought he sure was cute.

Six months ago, in September, we requested his file, even though we knew that we had to have a dossier in China, before we could go anywhere with it, but our agency encouraged us to try…

Four months ago, in November, our dossier went to China…

132 days ago, our petition to adopt our boy was pre-aproved.

62 days ago, we received our formal letter of approval from China.

58 days ago, our son was officially approved by US immigration.

5 days ago we received our travel approval.

In 10 days we are going to meet him…
