Here is our dossier all packed up safe and sound (many thanks to Karla!) and headed to China today! Again and always, God's timing is perfect. I had already planned to go by Lifeline to deliver some goodies. When I arrived Karla said "I have to show you something!" and it was this nice red and yellow DHL package with our completed paperwork. The authenticated papers from Houston arrived this morning! Praise the Lord! So all documents are signed, sealed, and in about 3 days delivered to China! Now please Jesus may all of us families who are DTC have a quick, smooth LID!!!

Okay, for all those not familiar with all the adoption initials...here's the down-low:
DTC: Date your dossier (documents) goes to China
LID: Date you're officially logged in to the CCAA's system
CCAA: China Center for Adoption Affairs

There's so many more, but I don't want to overwhelm you! (or bore you! :)
We're getting closer! And so excited to meet Kimmie and Quan-Boy! Thank you for sharing this with us!

Hooray! What a relief it is to get it out of your hands!

Let's hope the LID comes very quickly. I think it has sped up since we were DTC. Ours took a full month, but I think it's shorter now.

I feel like I've been waiting forever, don't you?

Yes! What a blessing day you had. It only took us two weeks from DTC to LID. We are counting the days until you get those precious babies!

Congratulations on your DTC!! Thanks SO VERY MUCH for leaving a comment on my blog. I, in turn, read every word of your story and I praise God for the blessings that have been bestowed upon us both. What an amazing adventure and how awesome it is to be able to share in the triumphs and joys of other families. I'll most definitely keep your family in my prayers and will follow your journey as you travel to bring your precious babies home.
