"By adopting a child and helping them reach their potential, they help us reach ours. An adopted child is not an unwanted child; to the contrary. They are a child who was searched for, prayed for, cried for, begged for; received by arms that ached, making empty hearts full. Love is meant to be shared." Author unknown

We have a LID

Our Log-in-Date is today, May 27th!!!  How can that be you ask?  China is 13 hours behind us so we were probably logged in while sleeping last night .  I was quite suprised to receive notice of it so soon as most don't hear about their LID till about 2 weeks afterwards.  To get it the same day is unusual.

So 4-5 more months and we should be on the way to China!!!!

Dossier arrived in China!

We received an email notification Sunday night that our Dossier was delivered to its destination in China (Monday morning, May 16th, in China). This adds more excitement to an already special day. So in addition to celebrating our youngest daughter's 4th birthday yesterday, we had the added joy of knowing our Dossier is finally where it needs to be!

Now we wait for them to log it in, which will probably be sometime later this week but we probably won't receive notification about it for several weeks. From our LID (Log in Date) we can better estimate when travel will be. Now impatiently we wait some more.

DTC tomorrow!!!!

I was just told by our agency that our Dossier looked good and should be on its way to China tomorrow!!!! Yippy!!!  This will be exactly 4 months from the day we began this journey. There have been several mountains to climb but I know there is a purpose for all of them.  These mountains have had me on my knees praying, often.  Our God is awesome!!!!
