I was SO not expecting to get my LOA so fast. I really expected to get the call on day 60 or later. But yesterday was only day 47 and at 6:00 P.M. I got the call from the agency saying they had it!!! I was shocked to say the least. I already have that coveted paper in my hands and will be sending it back tomorrow after Rusty signs it all! I tried to get a picture of the Fed Ex guy but I was upstairs and he took off! I was able to get a picture of the truck though!
Not the best since it was through the glass! Now it is confession time! I have done NOTHING to get ready for this trip! I guess because for Jaden I expected a 6 month wait and that didn't happen so I was thinking this time would be longer. Boy was I wrong. I will say that I finally took Jaden to get her passport last week! It should be here in less than 6 weeks(we hope!). I have bought Warren a few outfits, but I don't know what size he is so I have held back. After buying Jaden tons of clothes expecting her to be a tiny 8 month old and then getting to China and finding out I had an amazon baby, I have learned my lesson. Once we get home we will stock up on clothes! So know I am going to be busting my butt for the next couple of months getting ready for China. And of course I also am planning Jaden's China adoption reunion and now moving up her birthday party because it looks like we may be in China for her 4th birthday!


  1. Congrats on LOA! We have the same LID. : ) Hoping for LOA soon too!

  2. Congratulations! We leave in 8 days and I am going to try my hardest to go to the orphanage and see Warren and Lucy Mei!
