SUB . . .

. . . MITTED! I ended up calling my agency yesterday because I just couldn't stand it anymore. I was seriously checking my email and phone 1,000 times a day waiting for some news. So I called and asked what-the-heck is going on. (Not really) I politely asked if they have heard anything from Korea concerning the EP's. NOPE.

Then this morning a friend was over and we were talking about adoption and stuff and she was asking me about our status and I said "No one knows." She brought her little cutie-patootie home in July and we did our training together and went through the same agency. So she knows the specifics of the process. Well, once she left and I raced to my email to see if there were any surprises. Um, YEAH! A cute little email saying the we were in fact SUBMITTED for our EP. THE BEST words I have heard in a LONG TIME. And new pics of our sweet, adorable little Joye. I know, THE best.





She has changed SO much. But still cuter than EVER.

We were quoted 3-6 weeks from Travel Call! It's actually on the calendar now. We can put "weeks" in the sentences instead of "months." Totally surreal.

I had a feeling we were submitted because she has had her Visa Physical, but knowing that we are on the next step feels much better! YAY for progress.

I am hoping like crazy that my other agency friends have heard the same good news!
