It's a Match!

If you haven't noticed, a new milestone has been added to our timeline to the right...yes, we received notice of our Letter of Approval (LOA) from the CCCWA today! We have officially been approved and matched to Wang Long Qian, our Henry, and we couldn't be more elated. Yes, we had to eat out for dinner to celebrate :) 

So where do we go from here?  Well, we have letters and payment to send to CCAI along with final immigration forms which they will then send on to the USCIS.  Once immigration procedures are completed and the CCCWA receives our signed Letter of Approval, we await Travel Approval from China.  This is China's official invitation for us to travel to meet Henry.  The estimated time for actual travel to China is 10-14 weeks after the LOA arrives, so we are most likely looking at early December.  What an amazing Christmas we could be having this year!

Please continue to pray for all these details and specifically for further grants and gifts to come in so we can make the large costs coming up.  Thank you so much for your love and support...praise God with us for the great news today!


  1. I am celebrating with a huge praise to the Lord and a grand happy dance for all of you. We continue to pray as you move forward from here.

  2. Thank you, Debbie! I've done a bit of a happy dance myself:)
