Okay, well his birthday was actually yesterday but we're still celebrating! I can't believe how fast he's growing up. He's still the sweet, talkative boy he's always been. He was so excited to find out he's getting a dog for his birthday. We haven't found the right one yet and may wait until we return from China but we'll see. We love you Trent!!!

Nothing new to report on the adoption front. We're currently waiting for our I800 approval and hope to have that next week. After that we have to wait for a couple more steps before everything is sent to China. Then, we wait for China to issue our Travel Approval. Please pray that we are able to travel before the boys get out of school. Their last day is May 27.

Our agency called and they received our LOA!!!

That's right! After 109 days of waiting, we finally received that long awaited phone call.....our LOA arrived at our agency today!! They will be sending it out to us tomorrow and we should receive it on Wednesday. I don't know exactly what the next steps are but I do know this...we are one GIANT step closer to bringing our little Josie home!!!

I am still holding out hope that we could travel in April but it is looking more like May. I know God's timing will be perfect but I also know He tells us to ask and we shall receive so here goes.........please, please, please bring us a speedy TA (travel approval) so we can kiss our precious daughter for the very first time soon - SOON!!! We appreciate all your continued prayers as we prepare to meet Josie and bring her home.
