LOA!!!!!

Standard

There have been some exciting things going on with the Tucker family. Namely, the LOA or letter of approval from China. We have had preliminary approval since February, but this is the biggie. This means China has reviewed our entire life story, huge file and think we’d be ok to adopt Yu Fen.

So, Check this out!!! This was what all the jumping and screaming was about on August 20th. Now we await all the other immigration related processes and then China will issue us travel approval. Realistically I see us in China towards the end of October or beginning of November, but we’d go immediately once we have travel approval.
