Hi, I found your blog tonight while searching Kunming SWI. We have just sent in our application last week for a little boy there. We've had his file for a month and have finally heard back from the cardiologists and pediatrician about his prognosis. Was hoping to secure PA sometime in October but with the CCAA closed, I'm sure it will be later. What struck me, is our little guy's picture was taken in the same bouncey seat as your sweet baby girl's was. Not too much of a coincidence but it made me smile. Sweet babies. I enjoyed reading about your journey! Hope your LOA comes soon! :)
