Here is a photo of our new son, Logan!! John and I watched a bunch of videos of boys 4-6 years old, and John immediately liked Fu, Kang Chao. He seems spirited, and I think he looks a lot like John! We're working hard to get all the papers completed so that we can bring him home soon.

One of the most important things when adopting is to get everyone involved in the adoption to communicate with each other. Today, our social worker (the one who visited our home) sent an email to our home-study coordinator at WACAP asking for copies of our home-study documents. Over a week ago I emailed WACAP just to make certain that they have everything they need for the home-study, and now it appears that they never sent the documents on to the social worker so that she can finish the home-study report. For the home-study, we had to fill out a financial disclosure (and get it notarized), medical reports for each of us (and get them notarized), child abuse clearance forms (sent to the child abuse registry), police clearance reports, finger-prints, and letters of reference. We can re-use our dossier for the Chinese Center for Adoption Affairs, but US immigration requires all new documents for the home-study. Now if only I can get WACAP to get the documents to the social worker in Buffalo, we'll be all set. Until the next stack of documents anyway!
