Day 74 – and no LOA

Sunday, August 19th, 2007

I’ve been holding off on posting because I was waiting until we received our letter of acceptance so I could pass on the good news.  By all historical rights, we should have gotten it LAST Monday, and it should already be back in China.  But, no such luck.  We learned toward the end of the week that the one guy who signs the LOAs was out of the office last week.  He could have done it before he left, but no. :bleh:

So, as Joe describes it, it feels like our son is being held hostage for want of a piece of paper.  The likelihood that we might travel to get him in September has pretty much evaporated.  Assuming they get busy and get our documents moving, we will probably travel the last week in October.  We’ll see.  Stay tuned.
