Why do I always end up with more questions than answers when talking to agency?
Got a call yesterday. Asking for our Log In Date for the boys' paperwork. We are reusing their paperwork for this adoption. All that really means is that we didn't have to redo a few papers that we already have done for their adoptions.
So after giving our previous log in date, birthdates and names of the boys, I asked "What's up?" And was told that 2 weeks ago a question came in regards to the money wired for our paperwork. Pretty common, agency said. Sorted out.
So then last night (that would have been Monday night) questions came about our previous paperwork (called a dossier). So we must be in REVIEW for them to be asking questions. I said "Huh?? (like a dummy) We are in REVIEW?"
"Like does that mean we are close to LOA (Letter of Approval)??"
And they said "Could be, we don't know."
Now mind you all. I'm sitting here wondering why we don't have a LOG IN DATE (LID) yet, I know China got our paperwork March 22. And when I asked that, the agency said they didn't give them that- we are obviously logged in but often they don't "get" a log in date.
And another HUH? From me. Now, I know, I know, this is God's journey. Don't even ask me what I think of it, 'cause that's my answer. But when we get LOA gives us a better idea of travel, I mean, if we have it by next month we could travel in Aug. But if we wait for MONTHS-- it will be later:(
It seems to me that if we are in review for them to review we would have to be out of translation, and if that's so then I am pretty sure you don't just hang out in review for ages, or do you??? Come on my adoption buddies, tell me please!! Anyone know??
Help me out. I'm totally puzzled. All I know is we can probably figure a LID of about March 30. Why not, sounds good to me. And therefore, we are 26 days in to our wait. And the longest wait is over 100 days. Some of the shortest are around 30. And the agency did say some people get them at 30 days, some at 100+.
I'm praying for 30 DAYS. Wanna join in??
I'm also puzzled how they can't find the boys adoption paperwork when we sent a copy of it WITH Phoebe's paperwork?? Can I suggest some better filing system people?
Really wanting my girl, longing for her-- to end her wondering "when are they coming, are they coming, what will it be like?" I want to ease her fears, hold her hand, watch her sleep. Give her our family who already loves her so much to call her OWN.
God's timing. I cling to it:) All while continuing to love our daughter from afar.
