This should be the end of the waiting. We’re expecting to receive information about our new daughter this week or next week. First, we’ll get a call from our adoption agency telling us they have received from China a referral of a baby girl for us. We’ll get details about her (name, birthdate, where she is living in China, size, etc.) during the phone call. Then the next day, we’ll go to our adoption agency’s local office, look at 2-3 pictures China sent with the referral, fill out a one page form informing China we are accepting the referral, and take home the referral and pictures.

After they receive our referral acceptance form, China will send us a notice of travel approval in about 4 weeks and we will travel from 1-3 weeks after the receipt of the travel approval.
