PA!!!!!!!!

So it doesn't really mean much (in fact, we didn't even get it with AnnaClaire's adoption!) However, at least we know the CCAA is looking at our stuff and has given us the "okay" to adopt our sweet Kate!! Yay for pre-approval!! Now we wait for LOA!!

Here's the email we got this afternoon...

Dear Bill and Pam:

The CCAA has processed the Pre-Approval (PA) for your family’s request to adopt LXL! The PA is issued electronically once the information from the Electronic Acceptance has been reviewed and approved by the CCAA’s Special Needs Department.

Once the CCAA has fully reviewed your Dossier and application to adopt a specific child, they will issue the Letter of Acceptance. (LOA) How quickly the PA was received has no relation to how long it will take to issue your LOA.

I have printed the PA from the CCAA’s website and have attached it to this email. Be sure to print one off for your records.

Please contact me if you have any questions and congratulations on this step!

Blessings,

Melissa

Woohoo! Yes, it is a big milestone! One more thing to check off the list and before you know it, you'll find yourself in Nanchang, walking into a room and seeing your own little Kate for the first time.

Tonight we watched "Jesus in China" and the scenes made me miss China so much. I do envy your upcoming trip :-)

Looking forward to more updates.
