APPROVED!!!

Dear Sam,

Today we learned that the Vietnamese government has approved our dossier. Actually it happened last week sometime, but our agency wanted to make sure it was confirmed. So we got the unconfirmed news while we were on vacation in Phoenix with your Grandma and Grandpa.

What that means is that now we are just waiting for you to be approved for adoption. Or you may already have gone through the 127-day process, which include searching for a birth relative, trying to place you with an adoptive family in Vietnam, and being approved by the province where your orphanage is.

So, the question is how long before we learn who you are? Well, that could happen in the next month or so, or it could take another 2-3 months. Either way, we are pretty sure you have been born by now. (Of course, we thought that about Sophie over a year ago and were wrong).

There has been some hard news around here lately, mostly problems with both of our jobs and with your dad's school. So we were really excited to get some good news about you. Hopefully it won't be long before we'll be announcing who you are!

Love, Mommy

I'm so glad you got some good adoption news. I have to tell you, when I saw on the news that Angelina Jolie was able to seemingly immediately and effortlessly adopt a child from Vietnam it made me SO MAD because I thought of you and all the difficulty you've had with the process. I'm hoping that things are picking up for you and Sam will come home soon!
