Below is some great news for our family as reported by my wife. We will celebrate tonight.
It was with great pleasure and quite a bit of shock that Wim and I are announcing our official referral for Clara Rose!
Our agency was quite surprised at how quickly it was processed and so are we!
The US had changed the adoption process for interntaional adoption, so it will likely take ~2 months after we send our referral back to China, signed that we accept, before we travel.
China is also closed for the next week for their Autumn Moon festival. Freaking holidays!
Our agency is not sure if we will be able to travel early December or not because of these issues, but hopefully, we will at least be in China with Clara Rose for her 2nd birthday on January 17th.
