We can't travel before our 1 year anniversary of Gwen's adoption but our dossier can go to China before that date. It takes 3 to 4 months for travel authorization after DTC.
Our agency said they'd translate letters to/from the foster parents. We'll also send pictures and gifts to help get her familiar with her far away forever family. I didn't realize how much there is to do! I guess I better get busy, huh! :)
