LOA on Its Way!

Yesterday we had the joy of going to our agency's Travel Meeting. It was so much fun to meet other China families in the same process and to hear more details on what to expect in this last leg of the process.

(I also got to enjoy being away with my husband for nine whole hours!!!

And the icing on the cake for both of us was to hear the words from our sweet social worker that Zheng Zheng's LOA was coming to town!!!!

Did you hear us celebrating all the way where you live????

It was quite a surprise to all of us, even to our social worker, as we all were afraid we might have a wait ahead of us.

(And let me tell you, nothing in our adoption process has ever before moved quickly, LOL! Hubby and I kept looking at each other saying, "Are they sure they meant the Hixons?")

Soooo. . when it gets to Birmingham, our sw will overnight it to us (unless I just drive on down there and meet their courier guy and take HIS picture, too ;-) and then we will sign with another great fanfare, and get it back to Lifeline with all Zheng Zheng's immigration forms and visa application ASAP!!!

Hopefully, there will be a nice immigration worker who will put Zheng Zheng's file with Hai Hai's. :-)

We are thanking the Lord for this little gift of news and continue trusting in His sovereign timing.
