We have LID!

It is really official now. We have our log in date. You know when you go to the DMV to get your license renewed and you take a number? Well, that is what a LID is. It is our date at which we were logged into the CCAA (China Center for Adoption Affairs). Our dossier is officially in line waiting to be matched to a baby.

We have no idea how long the wait is going to be. There has been a major slowdown in China and it is very hard to predict the future. When we sent our initial application to the agency, the wait was at 6-8 months from LID to referral. The current wait time at the moment is around 13 months, but it is expected that it may go up even higher than that. So, we wait. That seems to be the name of the adoption game. Hurry up and wait.

Our official LID is August 2, 2006. Let the wait begin!!
