James 1:27 " Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. "

We were notified today by our agency that our dossier has been officially logged in by the CCAA as of today, April 25th.  Now onto to the next step, which is awaiting the CCAA to issue our LSC (letter seeking confirmation).  Which is where we will officially accept the referral of Carsen.  This step usually takes a couple of months, so hopefully we will have this by the middle of June.

I800A Approval!

Our I800A application was approved on March 18th and we received it in the mail on the 24th.  Now its on its way to be authenticated and then back to the agency so we can be DTC (dossier to China).  The completion of our dossier is huge!  It entails a moutain of authenticated paperwork and that has taken us the past several months to compile. Then we will wait for our LID (log in date) and then the wait for the CCWA to issue our LSC (letter seeking confirmation) begins.  Slowly, but surely we are moving forward!  Stay tuned for more updates....
