Today, we received a letter from our adoption agency notifying us that our dossier to China was logged in as received by CCAA (the Chinese government adoption agency)on July 28, 2005. So as I estimated earlier (see below), my official guess as to when adoption #2 will occur is:

We will receive the child referral in late February and we’ll probably travel in late March/early April.

Hopefully, we will be out of Guangzhou before April 15 as that is the date when the 2 week Canton Trade Fair begins (Guangzhou was formerly known as Canton). Businessmen around the world come to the trade fair. With all of the foreign businesmen in Guangzhou, hotel rooms become scarce and hotel rates more than double.
