Wahoo! Our fabulous WACAP coordinator Elizabeth called today with great news - they received our Letter Seeking Confirmation today!
This is one big step closer to our WanYing - the Letter Seeking Confirmation means that China has reviewed our dossier and WanYing's file and has agreed that we can adopt our little girl. And it means that we can send her care package now and announce to our daughter in one small way that her family is a-coming.
There was one little snag with our LSC... in the letter, WanYing is marked as a boy instead of a girl. It may take a couple of days for WACAP to get an updated LSC with her correct gender, but that's ok, the fact that we got our letter in less than two months more than makes up for a slight delay of gender confusion.
What's next? Once we get the corrected Letter Seeking Confirmation, we return it with our confirmation that we want WanYing to be our little girl. Then WACAP will apply for WanYing's U.S. visa. We're pre-approved for a visa, but now USCIS (Citizenship and Immigration Services) needs to match WanYing with the pre-approved visa. This takes about 2 months and then we'll get our Travel Authorization from China and we're cleared to go get our little one!
So, we're still on track for a March gotcha :)
And, as always, our full adoption timeline is up-to-date.
