WE ARE DTC !!!!!!!

We are DTC 4/30/09. We just received a telephone call from HAS saying they have reviewed our dossier. There are no corrections( I guess third time is a charm LOL) and it will be to China via DHL tomorrow morning. We can presume our Lid is about two weeks later but they will give us a definite LID when they get it. We are jumping for joy at our house. Hold on Matthew-- Daddy,Mommy and Olivia are coming All the Best-- Kate.

One Step Closer

Our dossier is finished sent and received by HAS yesterday. We are a very short time away from DTC. I can't wait to be able to write those three little letters. I will update as soon as we have any news. All the Best Kate

Day 6

We are on day six of a approximate 10 day weight for the final documents to be returned from the China Consulate. When Steve and I forwarded our initial documents to the preparer we inadvertently forgot to sign one of the documents. This held them up from going with the original documents. So again we wait. I keep reminding myself that we are getting closer. It seems,recently at least, that the LOSC have been coming more quickly the last group in 75 days. So we wait and pray for a swift travel plan. Matthew's room is all painted and now just needs the finishing touches and we will put up the crib and his bed. I can't wait to walk into that room and see it all ready for our beautiful boy.
Olivia's first Holy communion is this Saturday and they are predicting beautiful weather.I will post pictures as soon as I have them.Hoping everyone is enjoying the Springtime--- All the Best---- Kate.
