At last!!!!

Its finally happened, after two and a half months of broken promises the MOE official has at last handed over our dossier to Alma this afternoon!!

Even as i'm typing i can hardly believe it! Alma will now fly our dossier to Ust tomorrow and hand it over to the regional office who will process our LOI.

The only slight disappointment is that our travel date of the 19th January is not going to be feasible, we will find out next week when our LOI is likely to be ready but our new travel dates should be around the 25th - 30th January. We are not to worried about this to be honest, we are just so happy that we have finally cleared the MOE in Astana!!

Thanks to all who are praying for us, keep it up we are nearly there now. It makes a nice change to be posting good news!!!

Praise the Lord for answered prayer!

Pray that the LOI stage will go quickly and that we can travel soon.

Pray that our child will continue to thrive and be preserved.

Philip & Amanda

My husband and I have been reading your blog for the past few months and can totally relate to your ride on the adoption roller coaster. We rode that roller coaster for over 2 years while we waited to bring home our son. Now that he is home with us, we can say that the crazy & stressful ride was so worth it!
We will continue to keep your family in our prayers and we can't wait to read a post saying that you have your LOI!
Best Wishes!

In the words of 2 well known geniuses of our time your journey has been "most heinous" but I hope from now on it will "be excellent"

P.S. Was going to attach pic of Bill & Ted here but couldn't work out how too. How did Sandi do it???
