The fancy looking document above is the Referral Acceptance or Letter of Acceptance from China. We checked the little box that said 'We accept the adoptee mentioned above (Lu Jia Zhen)', signed our names, dated it, photocopied it, slipped it gingerly yet eagerly into the waiting UPS Next Day Air package, and Eric was off to give it to Tony (our friendly neighborhood UPS guy).
Since about 5:00pm I have been regularly checking the UPS website waiting for our package to show up in the system, to start making its way to the AWAA offices in McLean, VA. It hasn't shown up yet, but don't worry. I'm keeping my eye on it.
Eric signs his name. Good penmanship, honey!
