Introducing Ava Li

We sent our Letter of Intent to China to adopt a precious child on July 17th 2007. She is a 3 year old little girl, described as gentle and quiet. We got a report that says she likes to listen to music and play games (Peter will be SO happy). She loves to smile and always gives others a shy smile (see adorable top photo). We are so looking forward to adding this gentle, quiet little girl to our family. I have a feeling that with time, we will change some of those traits!

We got a call from our agency on Thursday, Sept. 13th, letting us know that our LOA (letter of acceptance) had arrived and they would overnight it to us. This is China's way of letting you know that everything is fine for you to adopt. We quickly signed the document and sent it back to our agency. Now, we are just waiting on travel approval. I really think that we will travel early November.

CONGRATS on your beautiful girl. I too am part of the July DTC group. I have had my daughter for a little over a month...seems like she has been with me forever. My daughter Channing is 3 as well. She grieved very, very just broke my heart to see her go through that. Now she is very happy and content. If you have any questions or anything I would love to share my journey with you. All the best and hopefully you get your TA soon!!
