LOI Received!!!!!!!

I came into work this morning to find our LOI (Letter of Invitation) on the fax machine. Our partners in Kazakhstan had it signed today actually (they are 10 hours ahead of us) and they immediately faxed us a copy as is normal procedure. Now, I have removed many an LOI from our fax machine as I have been with WPA/IAG since August of 2002 and in that time frame I have had the honor of helping hundreds of families in their adoption process, but I must say, removing THAT LOI from our fax was one of my most exciting moments here! That one little piece of paper means so very much in our process. Without it, we cannot enter Kazakhstan which of course means, we would never be united with our son. We are so excited...still Kaz bound on June 5th. Keep all of your fingers and toes crossed - we are purchasing our airline tickets today!!!!! Murat, here we come!!!!
