DTC & Good News!

We just heard from our agency that Xin Yuan was released back to the database last Thursday and was immediately matched on Friday. That family is her forever family, yea!! 

In addition, our agency got our dossier back yesterday, fully certified and authenticated, and are sending it to China today!   Now we wait to hear from China on a Locked in Date (LID). This is the date we need to get a referral from the main list next month. 

More to come in a few weeks as we learn more!

Hi Christy! I just came across your blog via Nicole Chryst's blog, and congratulations on DTC!! We are actually DTC on 6/2 also! We are with a different agency, but we are also hoping to be matched to a little girl soon from the shared list. Here's hoping for quick LID's for both of us!

Christy, I'm so excited to meet you, too!! I thought I was the only one out there hoping for a late-June shared list. LOL (although I know that for lots of waiting families, that list can't come soon enough!). I've also read that before CCAA gets ready to post another list, they speed through getting LID notices out. It's so hard not to get caught up in the rumors, isn't it?? I'm thrilled to have someone waiting with us!

hi there! i just read a few posts from your blog...oh how i love "meeting" other adoptive families! and you guys are just so adorable! are you with living hope as well?
i'll be praying that the next list comes out quickly and you will finally be able to put a name and face to the little girl you have been dreaming of!!

i don't know about you, but most days i am close to tears at any moment. i see a family at the park...2 boys and a girl...the way our family will be...or a sweet little asian baby with pigtails in her hair...and my heart aches for every passing day that someone else gets to care for my daughter. for every meal they feed her, for every bedtime that i don't get to sing her to sleep. oh i had no idea how painful it would be. and then again, i had no idea how much i had to learn about what pitiful patience i have! it's a horrible but necessary process for me. the waiting. i am constantly warring within myself with the desire to freak out and be mad, and the knowledge that i need to rest in knowing God's plan is perfect, and mine isn't.

ok, enough of my novella. i'm way too wordy :)
have a great day dear friend! i'll be praying for our babies today :)
