We feel like we've climbed The Great Wall already!!

We had our fingerprints re-done last Thursday, and also found out we had to write a letter to the CCAA requesting our dossier back. They would not send it just with the agency requesting. We went on to the beach from Charlotte where we were fingerprinted for a much needed break. It was on our way down that we found out about the letter. Fortunately, (from God, we know) a cyber-friend had sent me a sample letter about two weeks earlier that her agency had them use for this very same thing. As soon as we got to the beach, we found an internet cafe, pulled up the letter, typed in our info, and went directly to the post office and mailed it. We received word today that our letter and cover from the agency are on their way via FedEx to CCAA. Pray we receive our dossier back in record time!!

On another note, the updated documents we had to send for state seals last week were received at the new agency and were sent via carrier to be US and Chinese authenticated today!! Praise the Lord, and, they hope to have them back by the end of the week, or early next. If our dossier is returned quickly, all will be ready to go back to China within 1-2 weeks!!

Emma, we will see you soon, baby girl!!
