DTC or HIP HOP HOORAY!

Well It's official, I am DTC or Dossier to China today. What this means is that five months of grueling paper work is over and my complete dossier (all the documents I had to prepate to prove I am fit to parent a child) was reviewed by my agency and was sent via courier this morning to China. It will be sent to the China Center on Adoption Affairs for processing and in a few weeks I will be informed of my LID or log in date. China handles everything in chronological order and at present it was a 10-12 month wait for referral. I anticipate traveling to China this time or a little later next year to bring my daughter home. To celebrate this day I had my annual physical at work and got my first Hepatitis B injection. I will have two more of these shots and a bunch of others before travel. I bought these two books tonight in the mall and just couldn't resist because they were so sweet. "Petunia" has quite a little library of books and since ladybugs are significant to Chinese adoptions I figured why not? I will continue to keep writing my thoughts as the process continues and welcome feedback. Til next time. Love, Lisa

Congratulations! I'm a couple months behind you in the paperchase and I can't wait to be DTC. Cute books, too. I haven't seen those before.
