Well today is day 143 of our wait for our LOSC (letter of seeking confirmation). I have had days of emotional highs and days of emotional lows waiting on this little letter. Today is a good day. It is with great excitement that I wait for the phone to ring or even get an e-mail stating it has arrived. I figure that after 143 days of waiting we have to be on the tail end of this wait and it can't be long now. Sooo hopefully I will have some good news soon. In the mean time it is a good excuse to bump Ren's picture back up to the top of this blog so I can see his smiling little face. I love this picture a good friend took for me while in China. He just looks so sweet and guileless here. I can't wait to meet him!

The Chinese New Year is January 26th this year, maybe China will be working to get out letters out before they take their break for their holiday. This is the year of the Ox. Gung Hay Fat Choy!
