Where is Piper and Great News!!

Piper is in a China Care foster home in Hohhot City, Inner Mongolia. Hohhot is 642 miles northwest of Beijing or an hour plane ride.

We got an email today from our wonderful agency rep that they received word that our LOA (letter of approval) is on it's way from China! They are guessing that it will arrive at their office (in TN) on Tuesday due to the Memorial Day holiday. They will then overnight it to us to sign. We then have one more immigration step and the wait for Travel Approval (TA) begins. We will all need visa's and can now apply for them. I'll take the kids tomorrow to get a passport style photo taken. Justin & I have extras from our dossier. - Custom comment codes for MySpace, Hi5, Friendster and more

Your daughter is so cute! I noticed that you mention your agency is in TN. Is it by chance Small World? We have just began an adoption with them so I was curious. You can e-mail me at

Great news on your LOA. The people of Inner Mongolia are so beautiful including your daughter. Our 1st daughter was from Gansu, the province to the West of IM.
