Pre-Approval!

The sweetest words (besides, "get on the next plane to China") that a mommy can read:What? You need a little help with that? Here's the translation that came with the letter:
The application of Stephen Morningstar and Jamie Morningstar for the adoption of LING WAN YING from Shangrao the Center of the Children's Welfare, Jiangxi Welfare Institute Jiangxi province that you submitted was received. It is hereby advised that with a review of the Rehabilitation and Nurture Plan for the Child made by the family, the China Centre of Adoption Affairs agrees to move this application file into the procedure for adoption of special-need children.

China Centre of Adoption Affairs
Ok, I guess that the actual verbage doesn't sound super warm and snuggly, but from where we're sitting, that feels like a big ol' hug from the Chinese government!

Now we wait 1-4 months (how's that for a spread?) for our Letter Seeking Confirmation. That's the official, final Chinese OK that they're cool with us adopting WanYing. Once we get the Letter Seeking Confirmation and return our confirmation (she will be well confirmed) then we can send her a care package! Fun! Oh, and we also get to start the USCIS end of the paperwork (another 2 months) - remember, we're pre-approved for a visa, but we still have to match that pre-approval to WanYing. And then we go, go, go!

Exhaustive details are, as always available on our China timeline.

For now, we're just enjoying that the "the China Centre of Adoption Affairs agrees to move this application file into the procedure for adoption of special-need children" - sounds almost as good as Sasha squealing, "That my widdle sister! My Mei Mei, WanYing!"
