We have PA!!!!

After 3 excruciatingly long weeks…We have PA!!!! What does this mean exactly? The PA (Pre-Approval) is the CCAA's (China Center for Adoption Affairs) initial approval and agreement to complete the review of our dossier for our daughter Shiyi. The next step will be our Letter Seeking Confirmation or LSC. Currently we have seen this processed in 30-100 days depending on status of the dossier in process at the CCAA. If you have not submitted your dossier (which we have not yet, as it is still being compiled) the time for LSC will be estimated from the date of registration or LID-Log in Date (we are shooting for April/May). Once our LSC arrives, we should expect TA -to travel in 3-4 months afterward under the I-800A. All that said, there are still quite a bit of unknowns as we can only go as fast as each of the government entities process our documents. We are loosely thinking it will be September/October when we actually go get our daughter in China and we will definitely be there for two weeks. I have spared you the gory details of this paper chase unless you are just truly intrigued, in which case you may wish to visit with us and ask…Where are you in this process?
