LOA, LOA!!!

This is it- the source of my most recent anguish and, now, my great relief! It's actually more impressive in real life, with it's nice red stamp and all. But we could only get a photocopy in black & white.

The letter arrived today and we were able to go and sign it at the adoption consultant's office this afternoon. Hopefully, tomorrow, it will be winging its way back to China with the other documents that the Province had to sign.

Now, we wait for our TA. That needs to come, at the latest, by the first week in August. Hopefully, it will get here before that- or I'm going to be a wreck again. Let me tell you, the grey hairs are plentiful these days!

Not that I thought this would be easy... I just didn't expect it to be so hard every step of the way.

Hey Renee and Rick- great to hear from you!

Thanks to everyone for your support- it means a lot. Libby, it turns out that money order was never cashed (got lost?)- we were reimbursed today.
