We’ve Cleared The Last Hurdle!

The end of February we were contacted by our agency to advise us that the CC@@ was requesting updated information from us.

I was flooded with mixed emotions. I was glad to hear that we finally made it to the review room but scared to death that this might be where our journey to our little one would end.

I gathered up the information they were looking for and faxed it off to our agency right away. After lots of emails and phone conversations with a very patient and helpful contact at our agency I finally sent the original documentation requested and waited to here some good news.

I have been on pins and needles for almost 2 LONG months but today, I finally received the long awaited for email:

“We confirmed with the CC@@ last night that they received the documentation and your file is proceeding at the CC@@.”

I have never been so happy to read an email in my life!

For those of you unsure of what all this means, a quick summary would be that China has review our file and they approved us to be parents to one of their beautiful, amazing, wonderful, breathtaking children!!

Of course just to let you know, this does not shorten our wait time. It certainly does ease our minds though, knowing that we are now just* waiting, and no longer waiting & wondering if we would be approved.

* this is not to imply that the wait has all of a sudden turned into a cake walk, lol
