Well, we're still waiting for our LOA. So many families have received theirs whose paperwork was sent after ours. Our agency said that they would check on ours, and so we are praying for some good news soon. I can't explain the emotions over the past couple of months- the daily anticipation and then disappointment with no word. Ours hearts ache to hold this little girl that we have come to love. She is getting older with every passing day, and we want so badly for her to know us as her family. All that being said, we have the most wonderful family and friends. The words of encouragement and love has meant so much.
Please pray for us and for Cate and that everything falls into place for us to be able to travel for Cate soon.

Hey...I LOVE THE NEW PICTURES OF CATE ON YOUR BLOG!! Is she adorable, or what?!! Kim, I am so sad that you have not received LOA yet. I can't imagine how you feel rigt now (I can't even BEGIN to imagine). But, I do know that the good Lord has his own "timing" for things and, even though it might be different from OUR timing....he always knows best! So, if there is anything I can say to ease your sorrow just a little would be "TRUST IN HIM"! We don't always understand his reasoning for things (and I've sometimes QUESTIONED his reasoning), but he is guiding you right now, so just keep hold of his hand and...let him lead you to Cate!! Try to enjoy your weekend.

We'll be praying for you - and for Cate. I wish there was some way we could speed things up for you! It will be a great day indeed when we finally see a picture of Cate in your arms!

We continue to pray for your family. I would love to meet up with you in China! Our agency looked into ours last week and when I got it, I noticed it was issued on the same day they checked into it so hopefully, if it is not already in the mail, that will happen to you too and you will receive joyous news early next week.

I just saw you post on RQ. I understand how you feel. Our wait for LOA was very hard but for different reasons. It will come. We leave on Friday for China! Our second trip in 15 months!! It will happen. God's timing is PERFECT. I have to keep reminding myself of that often too. You can follow our journey on our blog.
