We just got word from our social worker that China has officially approved us to adopt Emily!
They have issued our LOA (letter of approval). The "what-ifs" have ended. The spaz out session has begun!
In the adoption world, we call this "soft LOA". China will now print and mail our LOA hard copy to Lifeline. Once Lifeline receives it, they will overnight it to us. Upon receiving our hard copy LOA, our official LOA wait will be over!
I will repost as soon as we receive our hard copy. At that time, I'll also explain what happens next.
This is fantastic news for us and for Emily Hope! We're coming, Mei Mei... hold on a little bit longer!
