Oh where, Oh where...

is my L O A, oh where, oh where could it beeeeeeee? Ok 2 months down waiting for our LOA. I was just sure it would come this week. I know better than to be "sure" about anything having to do w/ international adoption! When we started paperchasing for Jax back in July I just "knew"(ha!) we would travel no later than March. Now in all reality, hopefully, just maybe, not saying I am sure or anything but maybe before June. I pray I do not even start the month of June without Jax!!! UGH. So maybe my next post will be that I have my LOA. The thing is, after LOA all the counting starts right back over waiting for our TA (travel approval). My nerves are pretty much shot at this point. I want to eat sweets 24/7. I need benadryl to help me sleep most nights...even then I still get up between 2am and 4am to double check my email to see if just maybe there is an email from my coordinator saying our LOA is on the way!

Poor Tina....I totally understand! When you add hot flashes and night sweats to the mix of not sleeping because you're dreaming of LOA's and bringing your son home, it makes for some long miserable nights! lol!

I hope and pray you get your LOA soon! We are only on day 30 today! This is pure torture!

I do hope to see in your next post that you are LOA! I will be doing a happy dance for you! :)

Hugs and Blessings,
Tammy

I hate that you are having to wait so long. Think of it as extra time to save up money. Now I know this may sound silly and I know you have explained it before, but what exactly is an LOA?

I'm sorry Tina. I totally can relate. I sleep with my blackberry and wake several times a night to check for emails from the west coast. It's become a habit of mine for the last 14 months. I hope to see a post this week about your LOA arriving!!!

Hey Tina! It's your "cruise friend!" I understand the anxiety you're going through, but God will get you through it (and all of us praying for you!). I hope everything goes smoothly and quickly from here on out.
