More good news ! China received my dossier on 3/12/07 and I expected to wait for a good 2 to 4 weeks to be logged in, but I was told today that it was logged in already. Its only been 1 week !!! That’s really fast. So from today it’s a 2 to 5 month wait until we go and get her. Of course I hope it closer to two months but I have been watching the current times and its closer to 4 months. I guess that’s Ok though (Ok, not really), it gives me more time to get ready.

Great News

I got PA (pre-approval) from the Chinese government to go ahead and submit the paperwork to adopt Malia. The pre-approval came on 2/28/07.
Then 3/5/07 I got the “Golden Ticket” form Home Land Security which is permission from the US government to adopt Malia. So its coming all together and I should be DTC (Dossier to China) within 2 weeks. I think I’m still looking at a July or August travel date.
