That means our Dossier/ all of our official paperwork is on it's way to China!

Yay yay yay God! Thank You Jesus!!


I cannot wait to get our LID!!


It's time to get their timeline up on the sidebar! It's time to send them a package and get them pictures of their forever family!!

I'm doing cartwheels inside!! AND praising God!!

Did you reuse your old dossier or create a new one? Been hearing that people who are reusing dossiers are taking up to 2 MONTHS to get an LID!! gulp!!

Cari said...

YAY Jean!! So happy for you all, and thanks for the kind comments on my posts. I was trying to post enough info to help others but still keep things fairly private for our daughter until she is able or willing to share more. Thanks for you encouragement to post a series like that for older adoption. :)

So, so happy for you. At the rate we are going, we may just meet up in CHina. We are on day 54 of our LOA wait and have been told that families reusing thier doessiers are taking much longer than those who are not:( Not what I wanted to hear.

Hopefully things start moving, my paitence is wearing thin

Hugs,
Mandi

Yay! I know what a relief that is. I have no idea if we are near you in wait bc I do not understand it anymore and the waits seem to be all over the place. We are hoping to travel in Nov. and have been waiting for LOA for almost 50 days. We recd referral after LID so I know that makes it different. Anyway I'm babbling, hope I do see ya in China, tha would be cool!

We are DTC July 12 and HOPE to travel at the end of December. It might mean we'll be in China for Christmas (leaving 3 of the children home) but if we travel over Christmas break at least John (age 15, adopted April 2010) will be able to travel with us, which would be great!
