I still have more to write about our trip, but this can't wait!
Today we received an email from our adoption agency that we got our I-800A approval! This approval becomes the last document needed for our dossier. So what we're looking at is our agency translating and authenticating all of our documents and in a few weeks they will be sent off to China. Based off other adoption timelines we could be looking at this being done in 5-6 months, but we realize a lot of this is still out of our control.
For three years now we've been looking forward to having Lily be part of our 'forever family' and now we are getting to see this become a reality. We have more work to do and some more hurdles, but this is a step in the right direction and I'm feeling energized and encouraged from it!
Let me take a moment to remind you that we are needing to raise finances to finish this journey. If you want to make a tax-deductible donation to our family and be part of Lily's story you can at https://www.adopttogether.org/00793.
