Happy 1st Birthday Little Miss!
First, I know you are all dying for a name but it is harder than we thought it would be. We are working on it and as soon as we know, you will too.
Today is Little Miss's first birthday. I am sad that we are not there but I am so happy to know we will be there soon. I wish we could share her picture with you because she is just perfect but we have to wait until after we get pre-approval.
Lets see what do you want to know that I can share?
She is from the Hunan province in Chenzhou SWI.
She was about 14lbs at 9 months old
Her favorite toys are brightly colored and make noise :)
She is not strange. She is a vivacious and cute baby. LOL, that is a direct quote from the report :)
I can not wait to meet this little one. This is the time line that we expect but they are just estimates, I am thinking in total 3-5 months. We are ready to go any time!
Letter of Intent (LOI) - 9/25/10
Pre-Approval (PA)- 1-2 weeks
Letter of Approval (LOA) - 1-2 months
Travel Approval (TA) - 3-4 weeks
Consulate Appointment (CA) - 3-4 weeks and we will leave 2 weeks before our Consulate Appointment.
Happy Birthday baby girl! We can not wait to scoop you up and give you lots of love.
