Signed, Sealed, Delivered...

She's ours!  We received our LOA, the long awaited letter from China, today via FedEx from our agency.  We signed it in no time flat and sent it on its way.  Whew, that was a LONG wait.  Our next step is to wait for travel approval(TA) from China.  Our agency predicts 2-4 weeks but with the swine flu scare, it has taken some families longer, so we're excited but not holding our breath yet.  I told our agency rep that I REALLY want to get her by her birthday, July 19th.  She said it is very possible.
Now, I get to put together the long lists of things I need to pack and get our visas...yeah! We're coming, Josie!

But these things I plan won't happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, be patient! For it will surely take place. It will not be late by a single day." Habakkuk 2:3

Thursday will be 6 months since we first saw Josie.....we are ready to go bring her home!  
Unfortunately, we are STILL waiting.... I can tell you that this is way more emotionally painful than childbirth:)

Still waiting for our letter from China that officially says she's ours.  The average wait is 90 days, we're at 107. After several phone calls, our case was in the wrong place. I knew it!  Now that it is fixed, we need to wait for one more signature and then they'll send it.  Until then, I dream of meeting this sweet little face....we're coming Josie!
