We received it in the mail today!! It is the "Notice of favorable disposition concerning application for advance processing of orphan petition", and is a necessary step in our international adoption process.
In our previous three adoptions, we NEVER received it this quickly! The receipt date is 9/4, and the approval date is 9/26. Who knew our someone in our government could accomplish something so quickly. We are very grateful though! With Micah's adoption it took months and ended up needing the intervention of a State Senator to get it done.
I pray the rest of our paperwork comes together and moves through the process just as swiftly.
