And we have...

Glitter Symbols - ImageChef.com
So after reading on a yahoo group today that my friend, Jennifer, got her approval on Friday- day 64 (day 65 for us), getting an email today from my friend, Beth, saying she got her approval on day 66, and hearing that my friends, Kim and Sharon got TA TODAY, I figured it is a GREAT day...what can it hurt to call again and see if we got our I-800A approval (I called early last week and we hadn't been assigned an officer...so I didn't want to feel disappointed again today).

I didn't make it to the call though because when I went to get one of my boys off the bus I checked the mail and low and behold, there it was!!!! We got our approval on 12-29-11, which would have been 64 days....received it on day 69.

One minor hiccup- our officer didn't put an "e" on the end of my name so I called her and she said she would fix it and mail a new one out today....whew!

Very excited to be so close to DTC (Dossier to China)! Just one more step (authentication) that might take 2-3 weeks at most hopefully and our agency is doing that part for us!!


  1. Yay, so exciting!!! I remember how excited I was to get that approval in the mail for our first adoption.

    We are waiting on our fingerprint appointment on the 13th. I'm hoping we get our approval shortly after since we will be quickly approaching our six month deadline.

  2. One step closer to your sweet girl.


  3. YAY YAY YAY!!!!! So excited for you Brooke!!

  4. Yeah!! One step closer! Congratulations!! Cheers, Carmel

  5. Brooke, I just have to say what a BEAUTIFUL family you have:):)

  6. Just read your blog for the first time! So excited for you! Oh, I wish we had the resources for the deaf near us that you have but we are really hoping Zeke's ears can be helped with aides. Blessings to your beautiful family!
