Today has been a great day for both adoptions! We received our PA (pre-approval) for Reese. Which just means that China has agreed to review our paperwork to be officially matched with her. The next piece in that puzzle is getting our LSC (letter seeking confirmation). This is the document that took 122 days for Ethan's adoption. However, we are not expecting it will take long for Reese because we have been logged in for so long for her and it is supposed to be quicker in those cases. We are praying that China is agreeing to expedite her adoption and that we will get the LSC very soon. Then we can file all the American paperwork. And we can post her picture, too, after we get the LSC!
We also received an update on Ethan from Half the Sky and three pictures! He was moved to the China Care Home in Beijing on November 1st and is doing great! He needs one more check-up with the doctor in Beijing and then he will be cleared to travel. They will take him back to the orphanage where he will wait for us. He has been through so much and we just want to give him all the love and care he deserves. What an amazing and strong little boy he is!
