My first bit of big news is that yesterday we received our Letter Seeking Confirmation, aka LSC or LOA! This is China's official approval to adopt Lily! She is ours! We can now move on to the final steps of completing the adoption process.
For those of you who have not adopted from China, this is a big deal!
We can probably still travel this year, but it will be most likely the end of December and that is only if the remaining steps happen quickly enough.
My second bit of news is that we have moved the jewelry sale to a real website and also changed the name to something a bit more professional. My goal is to continue selling to raise the rest of the funds we need for this adoption but also to help other families adopt by offering a percentage of our sales through a fundraising program.
The new online store is called Designed For Hope and you can visit by clicking the name.
