We are officially DTC. Which means, our agency has reviewed our Dossier and approved it. And it is being sent to China today. So our DTC date is September 10, 2010. Our LID (Log In Date) will be about 2 weeks from today.

That means....once we receive our LID we can be matched at any time. It could take a month to be matched, it could take a year, it could take longer.

There is nothing left to do but...wait...and...PRAY!

This is a huge accomplishment. We have been paperchasing for miracle #2 for over a year now. The paperwork does not normally take that long. But with my father-in-law being struck with Cancer and his homecoming with Jesus, we put our adoption plans on hold to care for him and grieve.

It feels really good to finally be at this point.

And I cannot wait to see our daughter's face for the very first time.

Oh and Halainah is so excited to meet her Mei Mei as well!

That's exactly what we have done. We jumped right into our next adoption with our eyes closed.

We don't care if everyone thinks we are crazy to adopt once again and so soon.

And we have no idea how we are going to finance the rest of this amazing journey.

But what we do know, is that our daughter is waiting for us on the other side of the world. And we need her as much as she needs us.

So with our eyes closed and our hearts WIDE open. We are allowing God to lead us directly where he wants us to be. And we TRUST in him...COMPLETELY!

Our Dossier (all of the paperwork that took many many months to complete) is now finished and is currently sitting on a UPS truck making its way to our agency's door.

How exciting is that?

Hopefully it will be reviewed and approved with zero errors. And hopefully it will be sent to China on September 10th so that we can receive our LID (Log In Date).

Once that happens...our official wait to our next miracle will begin!

Let this miracle unfold right before our eyes...closed and all!
