"A"


our official LOA... Letter of Acceptance! This is the main approval that we have been waiting for!!! This means that we only have a few more steps and should travel in about 10 weeks :) We also received an updated picture of her with some of the other children at her orphanage...

She is on the far left ;) We have been so blessed to connect with two other families who are adopting 2 year olds from Kaylee Grace's same orphanage!! It has been so wonderful to be able to chat along the way and pray for one another :)


What a special gift it was to get our LOA and an updated picture of her...we're getting closer and we truly can't wait to start loving on her!!!
Merry Christmas Kaylee Grace!
