Dossier Sent to China!

We just wanted to post this good email we got today.  From what we understand, our dossier is on its way to China where it will take 4-6 weeks to be translated and logged into the CCCWA.  Once it is logged in, we will then be on the waiting list to be matched.  Right now they are saying it takes 1-2 months to get matched.  Then it will be 6-8 months to travel to China to get our baby girl!  We also found a doctor at A.I. Dupont that specializes in international adoptions and she will help us to review the medical paper work once we get matched.  She will also conduct the post adoption exam when we bring her home from China.  We are at excitement level 11!

Dear Bobby and Larkin:


Your hard work is being rewarded.  Officials at the China Center for Children’s Welfare and Adoption (CCCWA) in Beijing will soon begin the process of translating and reviewing your dossier paperwork.  Once your dossier has been reviewed AND you have been matched to a child, the officials at the CCCWA will process your Letter of Seeking Confirmation from Adopter (LOA). Once your Travel Approval has been issued your U.S. Consulate appointment date can be scheduled and you will be able to travel to China to adopt your child. At the time of your assignment, you will be updated as to the timeframes for this process.
