Hot Damn & Hallelujia!!!! Finally LOA!!!!!

We have FINALLY received the news we have been waiting for!! On Thursday, Aug, 4th we received our Letter Of Acceptance (LOA) from the Chinese Government CCCWA. They have officially accepted our dossier and now recognize Ryan and I as the family that will be adopting our sweet baby Magnus!



The girls are super excited and you can tell they can't wait to get their hands on their new baby brother!


Here's our Magnus (Hu Lu Shu-his chinese name) in the orphanage in Chengdu, China! He is now 16 months old. We hope to receive a couple updates and new pictures this month!


This is the official LOA document that Ryan and I signed!



We are over the moon excited and you can tell by this picture that his "BIG" sisters can not WAIT to get their hands on him and smooch him to pieces!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


With this information we plan to travel this fall. Yahoo!!! There still is a process that our paperwork has to go through before we travel and it will take about 6-8 weeks to complete this paperwork if all goes smoothly. Quicker would be fine, too! So pray that our paperwork goes to the appropriate departments and we can all get to China SOON!!!!!!!!!!!!

Right now, we are just celebrating and thanking our lucky stars that we finally have LOA after 90 days of waiting!!!! "Hold on baby Magnus, we're coming as soon we can!!!!"

Just saw this today on Zulilly and thought of you -- especially the Red Fish/Blue Fish toddler T-shirt.
