We Said YES!

At 12:14 PM, our FedEx guy FINALLY arrived.

He was baring a singularly beautiful item of paperwork. It was our LOA saying China had approved us to adopt Chang Bo Yong and asking us if we accepted the referral.


(Troy came in from building the boys' playset to sign)

By 1:30, all of the nearly one million pages (slight exaggeration for effect) of our paperwork was on its way to the USCIS for I800 approval, and our LOA was checked and signed and headed back to Holt.

These poor FedEx / delivery guys ;)

It was a GREAT day which continued with the building of (and playing on) the playset. (Thanks Uncle John and Cousin Jen for all the help!!)


We finished the evening with a toast to the day's events using the same glasses we used at our wedding...and at our toast to the start of our adoption journey for Aiden.

What a momentous day. We're one huge step closer, Ethan!

    Andrea (Holt bb)
