LOA

Today, our agency received our LOA (Letter of Acceptance)/LSC (Letter Seeking Confirmation) - same thing, people just call it two different things!

This is a HUGE deal in adoption!  China has officially approved us to adopt our son.  Now, we ask the U.S. government to approve us to bring our son to the U.S.  This process will take a few weeks and then eventually, we will wait for Travel Approval.  We expect to be waiting for travel approval in early July.  Once we receive it, we can travel within a couple of weeks.  So, we are on track for a mid-to-late July Family Day!!!

I am so excited!  And, so ready to meet our son!

Thank you for your prayers.  Please keep praying for us.  And, please keep praying for our son and for his caregivers.  Please pray that he is prepared for us and prepared to attach to us.  Please pray for us over the next couple of months.  We are still saving and raising money.  Travel in July and August is much more expensive than any other time of the year.  This worries me, especially because we really hope to take Connor and Kyle with us, but I know that God has known from the beginning exactly what date we will travel and exactly when we will meet our son.  And, He has known from the beginning who in our family will travel to China.  He knows exactly how much money we will need and how we will get to that point.  I trust He will provide exactly what we need.  But, please pray for peace in the finances.  And, please pray for all of the next few steps to happen quickly and smoothly, so that we can travel as we expect and hope.

Hello White Family... and congrats on your LOA. Seems that our 2 families are very close to being on the same timetable. We received LOA and our agency sent the I-800 off just yesterday (May 13). Here's praying for smooth sailing. :-)
