We Received Our LID! Yay!

Good news!

I really appreciate the prayers AND I promised to let you know after our DTC (Dossier to China), when we received our LID (Logged In Date), so I wanted to make sure I let you all know that on Joy's birthday (yesterday), we got word from Ms. Xiaoqing that we received our LID on 1/29/10! That means the dossier made it to China and was logged in with the Chinese government AND we made it before January's end.....my goal all along! That was only 11 days! The next step will be waiting for the next three little sweet letters.....LOA....Letter of Acceptance)! The timeline for this has been running about 2 months, but you know with God, anything is possible! I think someone recently got their's in 52 days....that's very encouraging!



Every step puts us that much closer to Luke. He turns two the end of this month, so we will send him a care package and have a cake sent to him via a third party, Ann of Red Thread, but I sure wish we could be there with him! Maybe we'll get updated pictures of him from his birthday celebration!

Again, thank you all for the prayers for the adoption process. It really helps knowing there are others out there praying for us as well! Praying our way through each step is what makes it bearable! It really does help planning and preparing the bedrooms during the wait too.

Bless you all! Have a great Wednesday!

**Joy loved all the birthday wishes...thank you for those too!**

Blessings,
Tammy

Congrats on LID! Such a great feeling? Is that a picture of you mailing your dossier or did X mail you something when you were logged in? We just got a email that we were LID and I want to be sure I am not missing something. Thanks!

FANTASTIC!!! I think in an earlier post that we agreed with Jason it would be earlier than June that you would go and pick up your son. I truly believe, in my heart, that it will be before June. What a great birthday present for Joy,something she will always remember.

Everyone keep praying.
