The adoption process can be loooong! And at some point, the journey feels like you’re never going to get there. It’s like running on a treadmill. You run, you’re tired, your doing all this work, yet you’re kinda in the same place. In adoption, you fill out form after form, yet the end goal seems so far off. And believe me, things have felt far off!
But for me, receiving our LID has made things REAL!
A LID is our dossier’s Log In Date. Once a dossier is sent to China (DTC), our agency takes it to the CCCWA’s office to have it logged into their system. The LID allows our agency to look for a match for us on the shared list.
Did you hear that? A match! So potentially we could be matched at anytime now! More realistically, we’ve been told 6 to 9 months.
But this is happening! This is really happening!
