Kathy---how beautiful she is!!!!!

Oh my goodness, I know you CANNOT wait to kiss those cheeks!

So, what does LOA mean? Is that permission to travel?

Oh what a sweetie!!!! So happy for you :) WOW I think you have a record there for getting your LOA. God must know your little one needs you, or better yet that mommy needs her new little one home!

What a cutie. Love those cheeks. I cannot wait to see her in your arms.
How long did it take you from LID to LOA?
We have a LID of 9/28 so I am just trying to "guestimate" when we will get our LOA.
