To adopt a child internationally, you must have approval from the US Government. For our China adoption, this is the first really big hurdle to complete, and we are done!
As of 5pm yesterday, March 8, 2010, we sent our Fedex package to the Department of Homeland Security in Texas. It took exactly 36 days for us to complete/revise our Home Study, and get all the paperwork done. We hope that Homeland Security will be just as quick in processing our application.
With thankfulness, we are one big step closer to Jia.
