I know I should have blogged this two days ago...but we got our LOA!!!!! They called around 5:30 Monday evening. I was in total shock! We were sitting down to eat dinner and the phone rang. That is odd because most people just send me a text. Well, as soon as I looked at the phone, I knew it was "the call!" Basically, this just means that China has approved our dossier and now we can begin the final steps to getting Lynleigh! Our agency told us to expect to travel at the end of August or beginning of September. Lynleigh turns 2 on Sept. 19th, so we are praying for big miracles and for travel before she turns 2!!!!

I've Lost Count!

You will be happy to know that I have lost count! You see, I had been counting the days since LOI and had become very obsessive about it! So much so, that I was starting to feel myself becoming very depressed about the whole situation. Well, through lots of prayer and with the help of my GOD....I would have to look at a calander to tell you at this moment!
I've also stopped stalking the adoption forums waiting to see if others near me have gotten their LOA. I've been keeping myself busy trying not to focus so much on when paper work will arrive.

Last night, a friend texted me and said that she felt lead to tell me that not only is this in HIS timing for Lynleigh...but also, it's HIS timing for my boys. This is my last summer to spend with just them and that I need to focus on making them feel important as well as spend time teaching them God's word! (I added that last part because I feel like God is saying to live it up for him this summer!!!)

So, here's to summer...and not knowing what day it really is!!!
