Authentication and Home Study News

We got 11 of the necessary 13 documents authenticated and back from the Chinese Embassy today! Also, we found out that our notarized home study should be returned to us sometime in the middle of this week. Once we have that, we can send in our I800a application. Then we will wait for our I797. Those two (the home study and I797) will be our last two pieces of documentation we will need to send to be authenticated -- probably MANY weeks from now -- before we can forward everything to China so we can begin the long wait for our LOA, or acceptance from China for us to adopt our (yet nameless) son. One step at a time. One step at a time!


  1. Yes, one step at a time....and, it's also so nice to have those papers in hand! Yahoo!

  2. Wow…you guys are moving fast! So excited to follow your journey!

    1. I just pray the governments on both sides feel the same sense urgency I do and move with the same expediency ;)
