WE HAVE LID!!!!!

-
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN!!!! WE HAVE LID!!!!!!!!!!! Our dossier is OFICIALLY logged in and under review with the government in China!!!! Woooohooooooo!

YES! That was really fast! I am so excited!! It is shaping up to be a May trip to CHINA to pick up OUR BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The next step we are waiting for is LOA. (letter of acceptance) We are at DAY 6 waiting for LOA today! This usually takes between 60-100 days. I have been seeing some people getting LOA in 70 days lately. 90 is the usual... Since they are about to have Chinese New Year I am thinking 80-90 days till LOA is probably a safe bet because we lose a week there. WOOOOOHOOOOOOO! I am so excited I can hardly stand myself. This is a huge step.

After LOA we get TA- travel approval. Then we get our appointment and GO! We are getting CLOSER PEOPLE!!!!

Congrats to all my buddies who got LID with me today. I can't wait to be in CHINA with you! Hugs, Angel

That's so awesome!! For some reason, I was under the impression that adoptions in China took a loooong time.. like years. I'm not sure where I got that in my head. Kaiya will be home so soon!

Hip hip hooray! That is awesome! I am so happy to hear that news...I thought it would take a little longer. I obviously no nothing about China adoptions, so it is fun to learn with you!

Yayyyyy! I've been following your blog for a while now, and I am so happy for you :-) Hope you get to hold your baby girl soon!
I spent one year in Guatemala and I love, love, love it. Zoe's birthcountry is simply one of the most beautiful places on earth, as are the people there! She should really be proud of her heritage (which I guess she is as you always stress how important Guate is to all of you)
By the way, I am from Germany, so if you like me to send you a couple of Kinder √úberraschung eggs, which I would love to do, just send me a mail :-) - email adress is in my profile (I saw your post about the belated christmas presents last year)
Love Dagmar

Wow! That is fantastic news. Being patient seems to be really paying off for you! I can feel your sense of calm about the situation. It's really great to see and I am so impressed by your strength. I wish I could have exhibited more patience when we were adopting. It is so much better for everyone involved. So excited your baby girl may be home by summer!

Hi everyone! I am just posting a little message on all the blogs I have designed letting you know that I am looking for ideas! As you know, I donate $5 of every blog to a Charity of the Month. Since you guys are what make Blogs for a Cause possible, I want your input for the future Charity of the Month for the months to come. Check out the first post on www.madebynikki.blogspot.com for full details. I can’t make any promises, of course, as I expect to get several suggestions, but I will definitely take everything into consideration! Please let me know of any ideas that you have of a group/person who needs monetary donations!
Thanks :)
