Paperwork arrived!

Dear Sam,

The next, very important step in our adoption has begun. Today our paperwork for the final investigation (by the U.S. government in Vietnam) arrived in Ho Chi Minh City. Any day now we should receive a log-in date. Then we can start counting. They say that the average time from log-in date to approval is about 40-some days, but there is some controversy about whether that is calendar days or working days. I do know that another family with our agency got their approval in 30-some calendar days, so that's possible, if there are no questions about your paperwork.

Once we get this approval, we will be traveling soon to get you. It could be as early as late July, but more likely will be August. We'll start counting the days as soon as we get word of our log-in.

Love, Mommy and Daddy

A note to all commenters: Thank you so much for all your well wishes and congratulations. It has been so helpful to have friends and family who have supported us through this ordeal of a journey. We'll try to keep you updated on this blog on our continued program toward Sam and Sophie. --Heidi and Ed
