Milestone Day

Wow!  What an exciting day!  We hit two huge milestones in our adoption process!  The first is that all of our final dossier paperwork was sent to the China Center for Children’s Welfare and Adoptions (CCCWA) in Beijing!  This is called “Dossier to Country” (DTC).  Now CCCWA has everything that they need to issue us our “Letter of Acceptance” (LOA)!  Since we are the first family in our agency to return for a second WIC adoption within a year’s time, we are not sure how long it will take to receive the LOA, but the orphanage has requested that our case be expedited.  We are getting close! 

The second huge milestone hit today was in our fundraising efforts!  We received several hundred dollars in donations today…enough to reach our matching grant amount!!  We needed to raise $2,500 in order to receive that same amount for a matching grant and YOU DID IT!!!!!  Thank you!!!!! We are still in need of more funding, but it is such a relief to have the amount needed for the grant!  Thank you for your generous hearts and your willingness to help bring Michael out of an orphanage and into his forever family!   You have made an eternal impact today on our family and we are eternally grateful!
