Pre-Mature Letter of Intent

Our Social Worker has requested a letter from us stating what our plan for this child is. She said it is called the Letter of Intent. It is an important document that goes to China when a family is interested in a SN child. It needs to state we understand what her SN is, our plan for her rehabilitation and how we intend to nuture her. She said it was pre-mature to think any thing of it, but just in case we are matched with is already done!

On a side note, I think this letter will be used to help the agency match this child if several families show interest in her. So, this letter has to be good!

One year ago today...

China logged us in! We went and ate Chinese food today as we always do on the 25th of each month. We have decided to stop doing has become too hard and sad for us. If things don't change quickly (Feb. 1st...maybe?) looks like it might be 2012 before Stinker Doodle will see his baby sister. UGGGHHH!!!!!

The Decision

Well, after looking at her file, a consultation with the Pediatrician and with much discussion, we decided to call our Social Worker and tell her we want to be this sweet little girls parents. She seemed very happy to hear from us and happy about our decision. She reminded us that there might be other families interested in her. So, we are not going to get our hopes up... But, it is hard to imagine after looking at that face, she is not ours. Of, all days too! It's been a year since we logged in. We will wait and see. We should know something after the first of February. The agency deadline!

A List!!

That was fast!!!! Our social worker emailed us the names of two little girls from the list they got from the CCAA. One with a cleft lip/palate and one with Syndactyly of the right hand (repaired). We can request more info about either child if we are interested. We feel after much discussion, we would like to see the file of the child with the repaired right hand. She is three years old. Let's see what happens when we get the file...

Happy Birthday Daddy!!!!

We love you...Mommy Doodle and Stinker Doodle


We got an email from our adoption agency today. Our Social Worker wants to know if we might be open to a special needs (SN) child. So, we answered some questions and opened our heart to a possible child that REALLY needs a home. We sat and discussed it. It really depends on what the SN is and is this good for Stinker Doodle. She says that there might be a list next week from the CCAA. So, we will see what happens. No guarantee....
