One Step Closer

We are PA!!!  So many adoption acronyms, so what does this mean?  This means that we are “pre-approved.”  So excited to get notification today with the very important “It is hereby advised that with a review of the Rehabilitation and Nurture Plan for the Child made by the family, the China Centre of Adoption Affairs agrees to move this application file into the procedure for adoption of special-need children.”  LOVE IT!!!! 

And, as this will become part of Nora’s “birth story” here’s some of our major milestones:

DTC (Dossier to China):  7/10/2009
LID (Log In Date in China):  7/22/2009
DOR (Date of Referral):  6/21/2012 (Oh, Happy Day - Seeing Miss Nora for the First Time!)
LOI /EA (Letter of Intent / Electronic Acceptance):  6/28/2012
PA (Pre-Approval to Adopt Miss Nora):  7/20/2012 (Happy Birthday, Grandpa!)
RA (Referral Approval - Final Approval): “Patiently” Waiting
TA (Travel Approval):  Will be a Day to Celebrate
Travel Dates: Eager Anticipation ...

Super Excited for you!!! I'll be praying that you won't have to be patient too much longer!

Yes, your Dad definitely has room for one (and maybe even two) more. ;)

Love you!
