Hope in the Journey

My mom and I were looking through the latest LOA's (letter of acceptance) that other families have received and how long they waited to receive it. It looks like the average within our agency, CCAI, is approximately 70 days of a wait. Today, July 24th, we are on day 21 of our wait! I went through the calendar, marking off certain days to find out when our day 70 would be- September 11th is Day 70 of our wait for LOA (counting from July 3rd, LID- Log In Date). As I was counting the days, I looked up at the picture for the month of September. See it above? Yep, that is the Great Wall of China! I was shocked as this is a primarily (as in every single other picture) is a U.S. photo. I said to my Mom, "Look... did you notice the picture?" She hadn't and was shocked too! I think September sounds like a great time for travel! Chayah's 6th birthday came and passed again without a family on July 16th. The time is coming up pretty soon though! I am so excited and can hardly believe how fast September/October is coming up! :)
