I soooo wish I could say we have good news and our LOA (Letter of Acceptance MOM)
was here. But alas, it is not.
Frustration doesn't even describe how hard this wait and journey has been. We learned recently that our agency goofed up big time. So after a bunch of lame excuses why we did not have a LID (Log In Date) when our paperwork arrived in China Mar 22 and April was fastly disappearing, we learned they "misread" a paper involving a new fee so our paperwork arriving without the required fee meant it sat and did NOTHING for 6 whole weeks.
I know- GASP. As day by day blondie gets older without us, and we sit here wanting to parent her so badly it hurts- we lost a big chunk of time due to their error. We WOULD be about due to get that LOA now. But instead we are LID for May 3:(
Yep, at 40 days today. NOT the 73 or so we should be at. I sooo believe in God's timing, it's why I have only been deeply saddened for Phoebe, who knows of us and waits for us to come. Instead of freaking out over this on someone. Not sure WHO I'd be flippin' out on but needless to say someone at our awful agency would be a likely party. And that's just not nice.
To try and ease the sting, the agency did come forth with an update. Yep, pics of the blondie girl who we think may just be the Chinese version of Lady G*G*. I mean, look at those diva like poses?
And the hair, she's got HAIR! We've been assured they will not shave her head anymore.The little bow and sunglasses were provided by us, the dress so sweetly matches and it appears someone went to the trouble to dress her beautifully for us.
We were told she is healthy. She is still larger than Kat, but is smaller than Paisley.
Again it's so wonderful to see her in pictures and see how well cared for she looks.
So at Day 40 we continue to wait, praying for a quick LOA and other steps to get to our girl. And we stare at the pictures imagining her here and dreaming of the day that will finally happen.
I updated the blog and then the header of the blog, mom you should be proud of me since I did it all by myself. And it looked okay but then Savi helped me out and she is soooo much better at this than me. Thanks a ton Savi:)) You did a super job. And got my kids unsquished:)
There's the news on Phoebe. At least we are making progress now. God's timing. Always perfect.
