1800A APPROVAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The ball is in my court now!  We got the 1800A approval today!!  We got it back so much faster than I expected. So now I have to get it notarized.  Unfortunately I cannot find a notary until Monday.  Then I will fed ex it  along with all the other documents for our dossier to a courier in Sacramento for State Certification.  When I get that back I either drive to LA to the Chinese Consulate to  leave it all there for Authentication or I find another courier to avoid driving there with the girls, ugh!  Then I will have to go back to pick it up and then finally I can send my dossier to my agency to send to China.  At that time we have our DTC (Dossier to China Date) and wait for our LID (Log in Date).  Then the long wait for LOA (Letter of acceptance)  and then all of the new things required for the Hague Treaty are done.

 I like when the ball is in my court so I am in control!

 On another note, I got this from Ann of Red Thread showing the letter she sent to the Orphanage and a picture album we sent to Lily with her letter.  She said she would get it in two days.  So if the orphanage chooses to give it to her, she may now know that she has a family.

That is great!!!! I would think the orphanage would give Lily her package. I send a few to Lizzie and I do think she got all of them. The nannies took pics of her with some of the toys that we sent. Hopefully Ann will be able to get some pics of Lily with her package!!! I think she has a good relationship with them, so I would think she would be able to. Congrats on being another step closer to Lily!!

I am so glad to read that everything is falling in place for Lily's adoption. Our Pearl is just two months older than Lily and we brought her home at 3.25 years old. It was a wonderful experience and it will be fantastic to watch Lily's transformation. I think Lily will be happy to be the older child as it will give her some instant status in the family, at least that is how it worked for Pearl.

Best wishes for speedy travel.
