The great wait for Lilah-Kate is a very appropriate title for our blog. Months and months of paperwork led us to December 2010 when we saw the referral pictures and started pursuing Lilah-Kate. Once we were matched with her, another several weeks worth of forms and applications started, part of which was obtaining travel visas. Surprisingly, the agency was simultaneously coordinating Lilah-Kate's passport and visa for travel to the US. We were delighted to see her passport photo. It looks like the orphanage really wanted her to look pretty, here hair is neatly combed and she has on a pretty pink coat! Look at that sweet face!
