Today is our 30th day waiting for LOA. The time frame for this wait can range anywhere from 30-over 150 days. It averages around 90 days, so we may still be in for a long wait. Right now we are concentrating on getting things ready for Max. We have what will be his room painted and we've started picking out some clothes and bedding for him. Once we receive LOA things should move pretty quickly, so we want to have as much as we can ready before then. We're also trying to focus on spending some extra time with Ellie. Don't get me wrong, we're so excited to become a family of four. But, we'll also never get to be this wonderful little family of three again, so we're trying to enjoy our time together as that family.

  1. Hang in there Alexis! Our LOA came in 56 days. I know how you feel about the care package... We sent ours directly to the orphanage and so we have no way to know if they got it.
    I broke down last week and contacted LadyBugsNLove to contact the orphanage and ask additional questions. I hope they're successful. I'm just dying to know if Jia got her package and seen our pictures and if she know's we're coming etc....
    We're about 19 days waiting on TA and I'm praying this swine flu doesn't delay us!
