The last week has been very exciting. First, on July 29, we found out that we got our LOA. What exactly is a LOA? I still am not sure what the significance of the LOA is; however, it is a letter that comes from China. The letter states that we do in fact want to adopt Dang Yi Lin. We sign the letter and return it to China. It only took us 35 days to get our LOA. We have heard that some have had to wait 75 or more days for their LOA. After the LOA comes the travel invitation. We have been told that that could come as quickly as 2 weeks. We pray this is true. We never know what kind of impact the Olympics will have on all of this paper work. We are very hopefull that we will get to travel in early Oct.
The second exciting event, was getting new pictures of Hannah. The pictures let us know that she did receieve our care package. They cut her little pig tails off, but we still think she is adorable. In fact, she looks like a baby now. I get more amd more anxious to hold her everytime I see a new picture.
Thank you for your continued prayers and support.
