OUR REFERRAL!!! Announcing Margaret MacKenzie YiYi!!
On May 25th, 2006 at long last the wait was over and we had photos and info on our new daughter! We were so very very excited and happy to introduce our daughter, Margaret MacKenzie Yi Yi!! Her Chinese name is Dong YiYi and for 14 months she lived at the Yangdong Social Welfare Institute in Yangdong County in the province of Guangdong. Her birthday is June 4th, 2005
Many, many thanks to all our family and friends who have helped us through this very long process! We are really looking forward to the next part of our journey as a family!
Also, thanks so much to all the staff at our adoption agency, Children's Bridge, for all their help and support. We feel so privileged to be part of such a wonderful community!!
Our dossier was logged in China at the offices of the CCAA - Chinese Centre of Adoption Affairs - on June 9, 2005. Below is a link that explains more details of the matching process in China. It is very complicated with many steps and a very long wait but in the end it was all worthwhile.
For info on the China Center of Adoption Affairs (CCAA), which is the office that handles the processing of the files and the all important matching of child to adoptive parents, please see the following link.
Below is a picture taken inside the CCA of the matching room itself. You can see the wall of shelves filled with files from prospective parents.
