"By adopting a child and helping them reach their potential, they help us reach ours. An adopted child is not an unwanted child; to the contrary. They are a child who was searched for, prayed for, cried for, begged for; received by arms that ached, making empty hearts full. Love is meant to be shared." Author unknown

Three milestones met in one day!!!

We met three milestone in the adoption process last Thursday!
  1. Received our homestudy copies - yay, it's officially complete!
  2. Submitted our Letter of Intent (LOI) to China requesting permission to adopt ZAG
  3. Sent off our I-800A application, which is our petition to the US to adopt a foreign child (we have requested to be cleared to adopt two, in hopes of Noel)
Now we wait to receive a letter from China stating they pre-approve us to adopt ZAG. Should get that this week!!!!

In regards to the I-800A - we will wait to receive a letter with a stated appointment for us to go get our digital fingerprints done for Immigration Services.  Hope they clear the FBI records - just kidding, we have no doubt they will. I don't understand why this has to be redone, isn't not like our fingerprints have changed since we adopted Angel.
