FOR OUR LOA!!!!!!!!

We received our phone call tonight from WACAP at 5:34pm while on the soccer fields! Our case worker is estimating travel in 2 1/2-3 months! That puts us in February!!!! Exactly one year from the time we decided to adopt!

We just started painting Jackson's room tonight and I'm sure we'll be up for quite awhile this evening!

Our God is faithful and His timing is PERFECT!!! Please pray for Jackson because I'm sure they will start transitioning him soon and preparing him for our arrival. From what we know, he has been with the same foster family for over a year!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! We too are a WACAP family with a LID of 9/28/2009. Do you mind me asking when you were logged in? Just trying to get an idea of how long it took you to get LOA. Do they really think it will be 2 1/2 - 3 months before you travel? Our little guy turns 4 in March and I am really hoping and praying we can be there by then if not before. Now I am not so sure that is going to happen.

I'm hoping you'll get this comment. If I don't hear back from you, I will try to email you. Our LID is 8/17/09 and received LOA on Day 88. I do think that it will be the 2 1/2-3 months to travel. WACAP has been right on with the estimated times. I have also learned not to expect things to happen quickly so that I won't be disappointed...but rather to depend on God's infinite wisdom in His perfect timing!

I know you are over the moon!! What a great Thanksgiving present!!

{{I'm soooo mad at our SW!! She futzed around for a whole month ("not enough help... too much competition"... like I care !!) We should be traveling with you!! Ugh!!!!! I would love to be in China for the Chinese new year. Okay, I'm done venting :o) }}

Congratulations Stacy what a thrilling ride!!!!
