Today was a very good day! We received a call from our social worker. Our letter of acceptance (LOA) has arrived from China. This letter pretty much says that we can definitely adopt Michael. Our agency is sending it to us. We have to sign it and send it back to them. Then, they will send it to China.
The next step is to receive our travel invitation (TA). When our agency receives this, they can request an appointment at the consulate in Guangzhou. Then, we will know exactly when we will travel. We are expecting to travel within 6-8 weeks.
Hopefully, we will be able to spend Michael's second birthday with him on July 1st.
