Today is the day......

......that we are DTC for Ethan!!!!! That means that our dossier is winging it's way to China. Now we pray for a quick Log in date and then the wait begins. It is taking about 90 - 120 days from the time that your dossier is sent to China to receive your LOA (Letter of Acceptance) and then another 3-4 weeks for TA (Travel Approval). We hope to travel in the fall.

We are very happy to be one step closer to our son.

Wow! I'm just sitting here & thinking about the timeline. You should be in China between September & November. It'll be nice that you won't have to endure the heat. On the other hand, I'd rather be saying you were going there much sooner. Anything that brings your sweet boy home soon is fine with me! Hmmmm. . .

another boy for my Erin to ogle. Yay!

The wait must be so difficult for your family, so I'm glad you were given some good news of forward progress...sweet Ethan (and you all) are in my prayers!
