Big news this morning!!
We are now DTC today!! Meaning our Dossier (huge pile of paperwork) is TO CHINA!
All documents are authenticated and this pile is now on it's way to China! This is a big step!
What is next? In a week or so we wait to hear we are Logged In. We call it LID or Log In Date. Meaning it's now entered into the system and the countdown begins for a LOA (Letter of Approval).
We needed a LID of December 15th or we were going to be in trouble with ZhenAi's filed but we are now months ahead of schedule! So we are doing great.
Our last Chinese adoption, our LOA wait was 77 days from LID. This time they seem to be running really fast. We will see. We are told it's about 4-5months after LOA to travel. Honestly, April would work really well for us.
We were just awarded a matching grant of $4000! So we are starting a big holiday Facebook auction on Monday to raise the funds. If you are friends with me on fb, you can be invited to the auction. Feel free to add me. (Janice Procopio Walker) and send a little private note saying you follow my blog :)
We have just requested a photo update of ZhenAi, hopefully we get one.
