Yes, this is the word from our agency today! For friends and family who aren't familiar with adoption lingo, this means that the CCAA has approved us to travel to China to get our daughter. Now our agency can request our appointment with the U.S. Consulate in Guangzhou to complete Lauren's immigration paperwork and obtain her visa. Once that appointment is scheduled, our flights can be booked!! According to our agency we are still on target to travel on January 8th.

I know you are ready to sprout wings and fly to China! Congrats on your TA! When we were waiting for Claire, I was so anxious to go (we had HUGE delays between LOI and LOA) that we left less than a week after we got our TA!
