LOA Finally!!!!

After waiting for for what seemed like an eternity, we finally have LOA.  This document (actually titled Letter of Seeking Confirmation from Adopter) asks us to sign that we are accepting the adoptee.  YES, YES, YES we accept.  Now can we just go get her????  Not quite, we still have a number of other steps to go through.  However, we should be traveling within 2-3 months.  I can say with certainty that the last 3 months have been the most difficult part of this process for me.  LOA can typically take 60-90 days.  Obviously, I had hoped for a shorter wait.  When day 60 arrived, I became somewhat obsessed with the process and spent way to much time worrying about when other people were getting their LOA than trusting in God and His timing.  But, God is faithful and has a perfectly timed plan for the day that we meet our daughter.  We love you Ella Grace and can't wait to bring you home!  Until then sweet girl, you are covered in our prayers and the prayers of family and friends.
