Praise the Lord! Our agency called this afternoon to tell us that they have our LOA. They are overnighting it to us and we will have the package tomorrow afternoon. Waiting for LOA to come is the part of the process that varies most as far as how long it takes. Our wait (46 days) was pretty average. We have been told that we can expect to travel in about three months, which would put us in China in June. So tomorrow we will be busy finishing our I-800 application and getting that sent off so that we can start waiting again. . .
