WE HAVE A LID!!!!


For those of you that have adopted or are waiting to adopt - you know this is a BIG deal - it means China is saying - we have your dossier and it is logged in and now the big wait begins - everything in China is dependent upon the date you were logged in and ours is 1/29!!!! We just found out today - and that was a long wait since it was DTC (Dossier to China) on 12/20. Usually you hear in 3-4 weeks and we've been waiting quite awhile. SO - now we wait some more!!!


Well - it's off to hockey for us. We have TWO tournaments this weekend - that means 6+ games (yes, I'm trying to smile!!!) - the positive side - at least they are all in the same city!!! Hang on - only a few weeks left!!

Guess I do not need to ask you what your plans are this weekend.
Congrats on the good news with the papers.
I'll try not asking when the time is until I read it on your blog. But any idea how long till you go to China???

Mommy Spice said...

Oh yikes. We're still authenticating. I was hoping it wouldn't take that long. We may not be logged in until April.

Terri @ In His Hands said...

Yay! May your wait be shorter than ours has been!

Mr. Brian - if China doesn't slow down at all - then we are looking at STILL 16-18 months from our LID date!!! We're praying for God to move the hands of the CCAA workers in China and speed it up - He can do it, we know, He has BIG HANDS!!!

Congrats Bilby family on your LID! Whew! These victorys are huge in the adoption land!

Jen said...

Congratulations! Does this lucky little girl have a name yet??

Beckyb said...

Jen - that is a tough one this time around - wish I could say yes, but alas, we are still in debate on that!!!! You know - we try to go Biblical in nature and all of our kids have had five letters (Dumb, not planned, but it has been that way so far) SO - we are struggling!! Hmmmm, maybe I should make a poll!!!!! Winner gets...............the first dirty diaper!!!!! :)

Mr.Brian said...

I'm so excited for you Becky!!! I am praying with you that God causes the hands of the CCAA to move faster than usual.

TaiwanMommy said...

Yay becky! We're planning to travel to Taiwan again, hopefully in about 22 months. (We could go faster, but feel the girls need time to adjust) so, we won't be too far apart in our travels!

hugs-
Val

yippppeee !!! so excited for you ... i have heard the lids come and that it takes longer this time to hear about them ... so it takes about two weeks to hear a lid ... i am with you in the praying for quick hands at CCAA !!!

When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
~Deuteronomy 24:19
