It's a Boy!!

We have received PA from the People's Republic of China to adopt a 10 month old little boy.  His name is Shen Kai Zuo.  We got the call from our agency January 17, the night when the new shared list was released and she said she had a found a little guy we might be interested in.  She told us that he wasn't quite 10 months old yet and he has a congential heart defect.  We were shocked we got a call because this was the first she had been able to look for us since our homestudy was just completed.  We chedked out his files and talked to some doctors about his heart and prayed like crazy.  We submitted our LOI (letter of intent) on January 20 and waited what we thought was a really long 6 days and we received our PA on January 26.  Now the real wait begins, because it will be several months before we get our TA (travel approval) and then actually travel.  We have lots to do in the mean time.  Here's the pictures that we have so far, we hope we will be able to get updates along the way and we will post them as well.


  1. He is absolutely adorable!!!

    I can't wait to follow your journey.
