DTC!!!


Yes- you read that right!! We are DTC as of today!! We are so so happy to get that dossier off to China today! Thank you Carrie for working so hard and so quickly!! I am hoping for an LID date before Christmas but that may not happen- we will see. At least we should get one before the Chinese holidays- PTL! Does anyone know the average time between DTC and LID? Or even how long was it for you? I love trying to figure out when we may travel to get these sweet girls!!

This is a pic I found of our daughters on the SWI yahoo site! It was titled "older girls". Someone posted it hoping that someone may recognize them- well, someone did recognize them- their new MOM!! Yippee, I was so happy to stumble on this picture. Thank you, thank you to the dear person that posted it! The date on the pic was 7/9/2008!

Oh Jean, that is WONDERFUL news!! And what a darling picture of the girls!!

If memory serves me correctly...I think LID comes around a week after DTC. ??? But you likely won't know for about a month. *I could be way off on that! I need to go back and double check our time line!

WOOOOOOOHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Lots of great news going around today :)
Hope that LID comes quickly... I know you can't WAIT to hold your girls!!!

Cari said...

That's great! Our time between DTC to LID was 25 days. We just received our LSC about a week ago, so hopefully we'll be traveling in just a short few months!

Sue said...

Congrats to you...One step closer, and hopefully you will have them home before May.....
You are so lucky on all the pictures you have gotten so far on your girls....

Pam said...

GREAT NEWS!!!!!

We are still waiting on our LID~ maybe they will be very close together!

Congratulations on being DTC! You'll have them home before you know it.

They are cute girls. It's amazing how alike they look, almost enough to be twins.

David and Sarah said...

Hooray! One step closer!

Courtney said...

Hi! We were DTC on April 22, 2009, and our LID was May 19th.

Your daughters are precious!

Suzette said...

Sounds like we are very close in our dates. We were DTC on 10-30-09 and LID on 11-4-09. Only 6 days! Yippee! However, it took a couple of weeks before we found out our LID. Praying our RA and Travel get here quickly! Maybe we can meet each other in China. That would be great!

Karin said...

Woohoo!!!! Congratulations! I love the photo of the girls--how precious they are.

SOOOOO happy for you, Jean! Congrats!!

We are still waiting on our LID, but our agency said we definitely should've been notified by now, so they have made some inquiries and are still waiting to hear back. Hopefully we will get that date soon, quickly followed by our LOA. I just want our Khloe home asap! Spring break travel at this point (or SOONER!!) would be great!! ;)


Have a blessed Christmas Season! I love your mantel, BTW!!

Hugs,
Tanya

Congratulations on your DTC...and for sisters! Your family is just beautiful, and like you, we have a passion for special need adoptions. We're just starting to look at agencies and countries again. I'd love to hear which agency we're using if you'd like to email me privately.

We just were DTC 11/18/09 and received a call on 12/1/09 that our LID was 11/30/09. I thought we would have to wait alot longer to hear but it wasn't bad at all. We are with WACAP for this adoption. I hope you hear soon!

Jean, that is wonderful news. Congratulations on DTC! The picture is a wonderful surprise, they are just precious girls. We are praying for things to move at God's pace for your to bring them home. I love that in all the pictures you have posted they are side by side...I'm sure they are so very close.

Wow Jean, am I seeing this right, you're adopting 2?! how wonderful! I guess it's been a while since I visited your blog. God bless and I can't wait to see the rest of the "journey". Terry
