Welcome to our journey! The decision for us to adopt a child from China has been one of the most exciting things that we have done! We had no idea that a child half a world away could already be in our hearts....this is our journey to bring him home.

We got our LID!!

We got our LID!!! (Log in Date)  That means that all of our paperwork is Logged in to the system in China.  It was logged in on September 27, 2011.  Now.....we will just wait for our LOA (Letter of Acceptance).  This is taking some around 100 days....we are hoping that we will get a speedy one but only time will tell!  So far we are on day 19 and that has been hard enough!!
