Welcome to our journey! The decision for us to adopt a child from China has been one of the most exciting things that we have done! We had no idea that a child half a world away could already be in our hearts....this is our journey to bring him home.

moving on.....

We did send in our I-800a application and when I tracked it they have received let's see how soon we will be approved!  Some people get theirs back pretty quickly and then others wait longer....I am hoping for once in our process that this will be on the quick side!

Another exciting bit of information is now that we are all finished with our Home Study......our adoption agency told us that we are able to be matched with a child!  Next Tuesday we are going to have a "to go" meeting online with our agency.   This will allow us to view children that are available for adoption. If  there is a match for us we will be able to ask to adopt that child and accept a referral.  It will be so wonderful to know the child that will be ours! I am very excited for Tuesday to come!!  Will make everything seem very real!!

Update later  :)

Home Study finished!!

We finally got our Home Study report from the agency that did it for us! It looks good to me buy I have to send it in to our adoption agency for final approval!  I sure hope that everything is in there that is supposed to be so we can move on to the next step!  This has definitely been a slow process up to this point but we are hoping that things will go a lot smoother from here on.....fingers crossed! :)


We did get approved!!! Great news! Now on to the I-800a!!
