Finally, we have our LOA!!!!! Yahoo!!!!!!! On Monday, April 27, 2009, we received an e-mail and a phone call from our agency saying we had our LOA. We should, and should being the key word, travel in 6-9 weeks. This was the most amazing news we could have gotten. We will have our baby girl soon. I have been having a very hard time with this wait, then what happened with our Dossier getting over looked in the last batch of LOA's, I was really having a hard time. Very frustrated and all my patience was gone. After our baby shower on Sunday, I was feeling better. It just lifted my spirits so much. Then when we got the news Monday that we had LOA, well that really lifted my spirits. I was definitely on cloud nine, still am. I don't think my feet have touched the ground yet. I am so HAPPY!!!
Fed-Ex delivered our LOA to us today. Since we are a Hague family, we had a couple of extra documents that we had to fill out. CCAI sent them to us yesterday by email. We were able to get them all filled out last night and when we got our package today, we signed our documents and got them back in the mail today to CCAI. They will receive them tomorrow, review them and hopefully get them sent on there way to Missouri tomorrow, by Fed-Ex. This is were our I 800 will be approved, once it is approved, it will be on it's way to Guangzhou, China where our Article 5 will be issued, then on to CCAA so they can issue us TA (travel approval).
Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. We ask that you continue to pray for us as we go through the rest of this process and please pray for LeahJean to keep her safe and healthy and protected until we can get her. Also pray for her as her little life as she has know for the past year will soon be up-rooted. That she will adjust well and quickly with us. WOW it won't be long now. Hold on just a little bit longer baby girl, we will be there soon.
