More Good Adoption News

I just got off the phone with D~, from my agency.

Our dossier has been approved by the Ministry of Justice, which is a centralized government agency (as near as I can determine, at any rate) in Viet Nam. The dossier was actually approved three days ago, on September 12, 2006.

Our documents have now been sent to the provincial authorities in Da Nang, Viet Nam, which is the province where Lan is living with her foster mom and foster grandmother and foster sister.

We are now in the longest waiting period so far - the wait for the provincial authorities to approve Lan's documents, and send them to the Ministry of Justice together with our family dossier. The quickest that this has happened for a family with our agency is 1.5 months, and the longest it has taken for a family with our agency is 6 months.

So, we celebrate a milestone, and we wait for another.

Of course we are wishing for a short wait for you and Lana.

Side note: Jeff suggested Chaio with you and your family soon. What do you think?
