...we got LOA!
It's taken us a little while to get over the fact that pretty much everyone else got theirs in around 30-something days, but as my dad said, it's not like we can go back in time. We're a little frustrated to think that little R will probably require 1-2 more transfusions in China (assuming she's getting them) as a result of all of these delays, but as we've come to learn with adoption, it's out of our hands. We can look for someone or something to blame, but one thing we know is that it's not anything we did or didn't do...we worked as quickly as we could to do our part, and the rest was up to someone else.
So, now it's on to celebrating and being thankful that we are one step closer to our little daughter whom we can't wait to hold and love and bring home. Last night E said, "I want to marry Ro-rie when she gets here!" Hopefully it won't be too much longer!
