The LID has landed.... finally!!

My agency is one of those that can take a couple of months to give your LID and boy, did they take every single day of that 2 months and then some. My dossier went to China on June 5, 2006. For those of you unfamiliar with LID, it is an abbreviation for "Log In Date". This is the day that your paperwork is officially logged in by the Chinese government. In essence, it's when my clock officially started ticking until my referral and the day that I'm officially "in line". So do you want to know when it is? Oh, the suspense is killing me.

My Log In Date is June 14th, 2006!!!!!


I'm so excited!! That's only a day later than Jen. Maybe we'll travel together. So now I'm already 2 months into my wait. Time is really flying. I can't believe it's been 2 months already. I have so much to do! Woohoo!!!! I have a LID!!!!

Finally, girl! There's some news to celebrate.

Shaking by booty and singing 'Superfreak' in L&D at the news. OK, I don't know why 'Superfreak' but it sure is catchy ;0)

10 million congrat-o's for you!

How exciting! Don't you just love that final confirmation that you really do exist in the eyes of the officials in China. Congratulations on 2 months down. It's easier to look back at the time that has passed then worry about the wait ahead.

Love your blog BTW!

Yippee! I enjoyed your blog. I am making my rounds and ran onto it from a comment you left somehwere else. Thanks for having me. We are DTC July 14 and do not have an LID either. Other agencies gave their folks theirs weeks ago! Frustrating!
