AMAZING NEWS !!

Surprise !

We have amazing news....it all started when Mike and Jill stopped by to show us pictures of Bethany and talk about their decision to paperchase-Jill pulled up the AAI list of kids and I saw the picture of this little guy. The kids were running around and they stopped to OOOH and AHHH at all the kids on the list -they have wanted us to adopt again since the day we got home with Mia-Faith. Days passed and I kept thinking about him. After a ton of discussion we decided to ask for information. We consulted some friends, medical folks and realized along the way that he had already captured our hearts. On April 22nd our LOI was electronically sent to the CCAA. Another Waala adventure has begun !! Here we come Eli !!

Dawn and Dale said...

Oh my gosh!!! How exciting!!!! I'm so happy for you!!!!

I was wondering about the CCAA rule about not having more than 5 kids in the home including the adoptive child. Is there a way of going around that rule???

We adopted Charla in December and had to close our China file because of that rule! China is still very much in our hearts...I just assumed it would have to stay that way forever or at the very least till our oldest was away from home.

You have me curious now!!!

Soooooo happy for you guys!!

Love and blessings,

Dawn.

SOOOOO Excited for you all! It is as if China has been calling to us ever since we came home isn't it? We pray your process goes quickly and that your new son will be home in your arms soon. Welome back to the land of waiting. And no, the 2nd time around is no easier than the first wait! ;-) Many blessings to you all!

Yikes! What a great thing!
The placement of Joanna Mei in our home is our last shot at parenthood (at least as far as China goes) but if we have the chance - we'll go it again!
Love to watch your family - best of everything and God bless y'all!

You already know that I am so happy and excited for your family! :-) Congratulations! I'm looking forward to following your family's journey to Eli!

Also, I noticed someone (dawn & dale) left a comment asking about CCAA's family size rule and I just wanted answer that CCAA's family size requirement doesn't apply when adopting a SN/WC. Some agencies may have their own rules about family size, but it's not a CCAA rule.

Jenn said...

I had a feeling that it would only be a matter of time...=) So excited for all of you! I have a feeling that 5 isn't going to be enough for us either...
