Guess What??? (insert happy scream)

We got our LOA!!!! woot woot!! For my friends out there NOT from adoption land, that means China has reviewed our mile thick dossier and has deemed us suitable to parent Zhang Liang! (Will) It basically means China's said...HE'S YOURS!!!! happydancehappydance!!! Monday night we celebrated with our dearest friends the Hall's and Aunt Michelle at our favorite Chinese restaurant. I'd been awake since 2:30a anticipating the potential arrival of approvals and stressing about the potential disappointment if they DIDN'T arrive....(statistically the DO arrive on Monday's) and after a TingTso beer and a very full belly I quickly CRASHED! It was a wonderful emotional day! Waiting to bring home your adopted child is truly one crazy emotional rollercoaster!! The highs are soo great and lows are just maddening....this week, I'm enjoying my high!! I'll be on the crazy bus waiting for TA soon enough friends!!!!

Oh, and the Fed Ex guy said it was the first time he'd ever been called "the stork" and been photographed delivering a package....I learned from last adoption, it's fun to freak them out a little when they deliver VERY IMPORTANT adoption papers!! You should see their faces when a crazy woman waving a camera comes running out the door as soon as they stop their truck!!!!!


  1. Congratulations! how exciting! I love that you photographed the FedEx driver!

  2. So excited for you guys!! I'm a little teary I'm so happy for you :)

  3. I am so glad that this one is going MUCH quicker than the last! It sounds like TAs may take a bit longer. How long did we wait? Wasn't it around 2 months from LOA to TA? Well I sure hope that goes just as fast. Sam and Will will be so happy!
