Adopting from Henan Province

I admit...I'm going a little crazy not being able to blog about our baby! Everything is sitting on our dining room table - ready for Jeremiah to take downtown Atlanta in the morning for more notarization and authentication. The last piece of our dossier will be a letter explaining my kidney surgery and then 9-11 business days of CCAI checking over the dossier.

This is what we know: We are adopting our baby from the Henan Province, China's most populous province, home to more than 100 million people. And yet, last year this 18-orphanage province placed fewer than 100 children for international adoption. In CCAI's, 8,000-some adoptions, Henan children have represented less than 1% of their placements.

I've started on our his scrapbook, so stop by sometime to see his beautiful pictures. I'll post more info. as we are allowed. We think that it will take about 6 months after our log in date to get our travel date.
