In November 2004 we started the journey to bring a baby home from China ... five years later, in October 2009, we met Isobel Pingqin.
Our little livewire known as Izzy.

One week closer...

On Monday we met with our social worker and were given our first photos of our gorgeous girl.

We have named her Isobel Pingqin Andrews.

The amount of paperwork we had to organise this week was overwhelming, but finally was done.

On Friday our immigration documents were sent by express courier to the Australian Consulate in Shanghai. Other documents were returned to DoCS who advised on Friday afternoon they were also sent over to China.

We have a proposed "handover" date of 19 October, however it will take about 4 weeks for China to confirm that date (or give us a different date).

Next step - visas and travel arrangements.
