Much to our surprise and delight we got a call from our agency on the 22nd letting us know that our LOA/LSC was in! Anderson Xiao Jun Friday is officially ours! It was a great Christmas present and we were glad to be in Chicago with so many friends and family to share the good news. On top of that, we had sent a care package to him and we got a whole group of new pictures and his updated measurements. Now I can shop and know the clothes will actually fit him! We are hoping for travel in late February or early March....can't believe how soon that is, but I'm sure every day will seem like a week until then.
We left Chicago early yesterday morning and got in to Austin late last night. Woke up this morning to a beautiful sunny and warm's good to be back.
We met with our agency this afternoon to turn in all the signed documents and to have them go over it and make sure we didn't miss anything. Then, we went to FedEx and overnighted everything.
I'm pretty much in overdrive mode now trying to get everything done before we travel. I have the rest of this week off, so I've got each day planned out. We rented a storage lock a few blocks away and put the contents of the guest bedroom in it. I went and bought paint (no VOC) and taped up the room. Tomorrow, painting. Wednesday, IKEA. Pictures to come.
