Our Story Continues
In May of 2005 we adopted our daughter Iris then in July of 2006 we adopted our daughter Anna . Then in May of 2007 we saw the picture of an adorable little boy named Xin Jia He. He was listed with HOPE For Children (HFC). We requested to adopt him and were given approval by HFC to send a Letter Of Intent (LOI) on June 25, 2007 to the Center for Chinese Adoption Affairs (CCAA) to request to be Jia He's parents. On July 13, 2007 the CCAA sent us a Prior Approval Letter which allows us to move forward on Jia He's adoption.
Then after weeks of paperwork, our Dossier was sent to China on September 17, 2007. The dossier includes all the documents required by the People Republic of China(PRC), the United States Government and the State government to pursue the adoption of an orphaned or abandoned child.
This past week our adoption agency notified us that we have a Log In Date (LID) of September 21, 2007. Somewhere between 90 to 120 days or around that time frame the CCAA will request a Letter of Acceptance (LOA) from us. The LOA will be sent to the CCAA to confirm that we still desire to adopt Jia He. A couple of weeks later we will receive Travel Approval(TA) from the PRC. Based on this information, we hope to travel in January or February to bring Jia He home.
I am grateful to my dear friend Jennifer, an expert Blogger, who is teaching me how use Blogger to help friends and family follow our journey to Jia He.
Let the Journey Begin!!
