Dossier to China

Oh, for the longest time I've wanted to be able to say we are DTC... and now we are! Two years and twelve days since lodging our Expression of Interest in being assessed, and 8 months and 15 days since being approved (we do things quickly in Queensland, have you noticed?) our dossier is on a QANTAS plane and making its way to China. I saw a QANTAS plane in the sky on my way home from work tonight and choked up a little.

We are officially Qld batch #1 2008. Don't hold your breath, I doubt there will be any further batches from Qld this year. The China officer advised that in 6-8 weeks she will contact the CCAA (China Centre of Adoption Affairs) and find out our log-in-date.

To say I'm relieved is an understatement.

I know there is a massive wait ahead of us, but I do feel like we have finished one chapter of a book and are starting a new chapter. And that feels good!

Helene & John offer our sincere congratulations-WE thought having a baby the natural way was hard work. Good on you both for sticking to it. Lets hope for even more good news in the hopefully not too distant future.(:

Congratulations. You're getting there. Adoption can be such a tedious process. I'm glad that you're getting there.

My friends are still in the forms proces. They're getting theirs done through myadoptionforms.com. I hope the process goes smoothly.
