LSC signed and delievered!

Our Letter Seeking Confirmation from Adopters (LSC) arrived at our Provincial adoption agency on Friday afternoon - just before closing. So we had to wait patiently until this morning (because it's labor day weekend) for Cory to stop by and pick up the letter. We have now signed this letter and sent it back to the Chinese government. 

Basically the Letter Seeking Confirmation from Adopters is the formal offer from China to the adoptive parents to confirm their intentions to adopt the child. The Chinese government has reviewed our dossier (home study, letters of employment, health reports, criminal record checks, clearance from our Provincial Ministry of Families, copies of our birth certificates, passports, marriage license ect.) and has determined we have meet their criteria to adopt Mary Dang YunDan. 

We are now on the final step, waiting for our Notice of Coming to Travel to China for Adoption (NoC), where China formally issues an invitation for us to travel to China to adopt Mary. You will also see this referred to as our Travel Approval (or TA). Our agency expects this to arrive in the next month or so, where we will then make travel arrangement to go to China. At this point we it looks like we will be traveling in the beginning of November, we can't wait to meet Mary! Stay tuned!
