We waited all day Friday and as we were just about to leave to go out to dinner my phone rang and I immediately recognized that it was the adoption agency. A million thoughts raced through my mind, I wondered if our documents were back or maybe they weren´t yet...... I picked up the phone with a prayer in my heart that it would be good news....
Documents Sent to China 3/11/16
My first thought was Praise God! I am so grateful that our prayers were heard and our documents are finally sent to China! Dave and I were both on cloud nine as we left for our date night Friday night. We were smiling ear to ear and felt a huge sense of relief that everything was finally sent to China.
We should receive our Log in Date about a week after our documents are received so about a week from March 15th.
It is generally 4 1/2 to 5 months from date to China to travel so we still have quite a bit of time to wait but we celebrate each step closer.
More wonderful News....
Little M is the one sitting down in the black & white shirt
This morning we woke up still thrilled with the news that our documents are finally on the way to China and after a long morning of cleaning, doing a Pilates workout, and spending an hour studying Mandarin I open up Facebook and see that Little M has been placed in an English Immersion program! How exciting! It will make it so much easier for her to transition even knowing a little English before we bring her home!
We are studying Mandarin and we are doing very well. I know how to ask are you hungry, are you thirsty, do you want to go to the park.....we are learning a lot trying to ease her transition and now that she will also be learning English I think it will really make it a little easier. We are so excited!
