Finally!

Good news!

Today, May 9th, we finally moved from the "paperchase phase" to being DTC! DTC means that our dossier is enroute to the Chinese Center for Adoption Affairs. Now we just have to wait for our LID (which is the date that the Chinese office logs you into their system). The official wait is currently 12 months from LID - YIKES - but we are keeping our fingers (and toes) crossed for an expedited referral due to Joe's Chinese heritage. We just now have to wait and see.
