We have a LID!!!!!!!! 01/22/09!!!!!!!!
We are so excited to get a LID so soon! That means that we could get matched with our child at any time now!!!!! No, I'm sure the thought won't cross my mind every time the phone rings.

Originally we thought we would get our LID by the end of this month but we forgot about the CCAA and China being basically closed until Feb 10th. I think we will get a LID by the end of February. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

Finally we finished our dossier and sent it to our agency this past Tuesday, Jan 6th. It took us 9 months to get it done. It took Homeland Security 5 months to process our I800 application. The new system for Homeland Security that started on April 1, 2008 has made this whole international adoption process even more complicated. But the upside is that our dossier is finally being processed to go to China!
We have requested to adopt a special needs child. We haven't been matched with a child yet, but we hope to be matched fairly soon. We will update this blog as the exciting events unfold.
