We found out yesterday that our dossier is matched reviewed.  That means that we have what they call SOFT LOA.  In the next couple of weeks we should be receiving the Hard version of our Letter of Approval from China (LOA).  Expected travel time is about 3 months from receipt of LOA.  We are one step closer!!!

I did not realize how emotional I would be over finding this out.  I literally cried.  It really hit me hard.  I'm going to be a Mama in a few short months.  The idea of being a mother was so foreign to me until a couple years ago.  When I first saw Caroline's photo, it was a surreal feeling.  That's my daughter.  Wow!!!  Now, I can't imagine having any other child as my daughter.  I think about her constantly.  I find myself looking at her sweet photos and the various faces of Caroline.  She is a beauty.  Hopefully soon I will be able to share more photos with you. 

Caroline Quinnmei Xiaohui - Mama and Baba are just a few months away from meeting you in person and we cannot wait!
