"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

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.


  1. I know it must seem like an eternity for you guys, this wait, wait, and more wait... but from an outsider (me!) looking at the process, I keep being amazed at how quickly it is all happening.

  2. Congrats on being DTC for Tegan! (Love his name!) Our son is in Shanghai with Tegan. He is 3 years old. Can't wait to follow along!
