Yup - it is the happy dance for a good reason. We have our LID!!!!! For those of you who are not familiar with adoption pregnancy acronyms - that means Log In Date! Our paperwork was all sent to Ch*na on 6/25/09 and we just found out today that it was officially recognized by them on 7/13/09!
Now the waiting. Waiting. More waiting. Then still more. Our agency predicts a 3-4 month wait for our LOC (Letter of Seeking Confirmation). After that it is generally about 2 months till we can actually go to our daughter. I just read about another family who received their LOC in 6 weeks, so it is possible to be faster. Just not very likely :-(
