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.


  1. So exciting! I hope they're fast. One week is too long to wait. Eight is too long!

  2. Yay!!! We got ours 1 week to the day after we got out of translation, so ... GOOD LUCK!!

  3. One week???!!!! Ohhhh my......

  4. I agree, even one week is TOO LONG!! I am so excited for you!

  5. That's fantastic! But wow, a 1-8 week time range? That's a big range! I imagine you are feeling all sorts of things right now. Hang in there... you are getting closer!

  6. More wonderful than anything! I hope they are quick. Does this mean you could be traveling soon? Wow!

  7. Our breaths are shallow
    With frozen hope awaiting
    Xian's joyous news.

    I just checked your blog and read your amazing news. For some reason the quote "and joy cometh in the morning" was my mind's first response. I googled it and found it's from Psalm 30:5...must have stuck from doing mine and my two brothers' Sunday school lessons! The KIng James version is always the most poetic.

    I will hold my breath with you all and hope for joyous news soon.

    1. Thanks, Cousin Judy! This was a lovely comment--I always appreciate a good haiku!
