LOA!




After waiting for 76 days, I am thrilled to say we have received our LOA from China! After being so discouraged about the adoption process last week, today I am positively giddy with excitement. While we still have a few more steps to go before we can travel to pick up our little Sprout, it is such a relief to have this part finished. The LOA is the great mystery of the process; some people receive theirs in 30 days while others wait over 100. The rest of the process is much more streamlined and regimented. If the current averages continue, it looks like we may be in China in mid-November. Chipmunk is beyond excited at the prospect of spending his 9th birthday in China with his new sister. I am just happy that she will be home with her family for the holidays. Not too much longer sweet baby girl!

Great news!!! :) So happy for Sprout and the whole family!

Isn't it about time for a bedroom tour? ;) You know how I love kids rooms. Are any of the kids going to be sharing with Sprout?
