We received our PA ( pre- approval) today !!!
This means that our application to adopt Gao En Xiao ( Maggie) has been submitted and received by the China Center of Adoption Affairs (CCAA).
What next ?
We wait on our Referral Acceptance (RA) which confirms that the CCAA has approved our family's request to adopt Maggie. This is also known as the Letter of Acceptance
When will we travel ?
Since our Dossier was already in China when we sent our Letter of Intent( LOI), and our Dossier went directly to the Special Needs Department, we will wait an average of 2-6 months for our RA. From then, we will wait some more for our Travel Acceptance (TA). The average wait time seems to be about 4 months for an RA.
So, we really don't know when we will travel.
I can't wait to hold our little Maggie ! (which by the way, is what part of her name means - "little").
In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation. Psalm 5:3
