Our Journey to Sophia

LOI is off!

Our letter of intent was sent to China today stating that we would seek excellent medical resources for Sophie and that we would take care of her in all of her needs and love her unconditionally. After China gets this letter, they will pull our dossier and review it. We are now waiting for word that they have accepted us and that we will get our TA (travel approval). Our agency is preparing us for a 3-4 month wait! We keep praying this will shorten greatly! We already miss our sweet Sophie!!!

We have been part of a pilot group for the waiting children in our agency. Our agency chose five families to travel together to China to pick up their daughters. We knew they had been reviewing all families and trying to pick the ones to go, and we got the call today at 3:43pm whle driving in our car that we were selected for a baby. We have her picture and will try to post as soon as we can figure out how. She is 15 months old and was born with a cleft lip and palate. The lip has been repaired and she will need surgery soon to repair the palate and she is SOOOOOO BEAUTIFUL! We are OVER THE MOON. We can not wait to bring little Sophie home!!!!! It is likely that we will travel in a few months. Hold tight little one, mommy and daddy are gonna get you as soon as we can! We love you!
