Out of translation

We are officially out of translation.  We are now waiting on our letter of acceptance, or LOA, which can take 1-8 weeks.  The LOA document will mean that in the eyes of the Chinese government, we will be Little Guys parents.

So, you know, kind of a big deal.

We're waiting on tenterhooks over here.  It's scary.  And wonderful.  And scary.

But wonderful.

A Quick Update (of pretty much nuthin')

I’ve had a few emails, etc, so just an update to say we are still waiting, waiting, waiting.  There are two steps to this particular part of the Great Wait for Approval: translation and LOA.  We are currently in translation, which means our dossier is, well, being translated into Mandarin.  Once that is done, our agency will notify us, and I will begin biting my fingernails again, because that is the actual LOA (Letter of Approval) wait.  The time between translation and LOA is usually 3-4 weeks—could be more, could be less. 
So, for now, we are doing our best to keep as busy as possible, and honestly are doing all right with this part of the wait.  So far.  Don’t get me wrong, I’d hop on a plane tomorrow if I could, but ‘tis not an option.  Another month and I’ll be climbing the walls, but for now, just hanging in there.
 So…how’s that for a boring update?
