September 23, 2002 Update

Still waiting for news on our Chinese adoption. Expected date of referral (receipt of information about our future daughter from the Chinese government) is the end of October or the end of November. Typical timeline for leaving for China to pick up a daughter and go through the adoption process in China is 6 to 8 weeks after referral. Time spent in China to go through the adoption/immigration process is 10-14 days. So there is a chance, we can pick up our daughter and bring her back to Sacramento before Christmas. Though we have been warned it might not occur until the middle of January
