Our good news came a little bit early. Jessa called this morning at 10:56am to say that she had everything for our dossier (it was shipped from me and from the courier in Chicago) and that it all looked great!!! It's already packaged up to go to China in the mailing on Friday. YEAH!!!! So that means our official DTC (dossier to China) date is 09/18/09.
Our next step in the process is getting our LID (log in date). That's kind of like a FedEx tracking number in a way -- it means that our dossier is in the system to be processed. After that we'll be waiting on our LSC -- which meaning Chloe is officially ours -- that takes anywhere from 30 to 100 days -- on average. One we get our LSC we can post her beautiful little face on the blog.
Here are some stats on our dossier:
We started our dossier on July 20th. From then to the day it is mailed to China is less than 9 weeks.
Our LOI was sent in on August 7th. Our dossier will be mailed to China exactly 6 weeks later.
It didn't take too long -- it was stressful -- but for a short amount of time. Now the hard part -- waiting for our LSC. I'm so grateful that I have Cassie to keep me busy this time with the waiting. It's very easy to get lost in watching her giggle and play all day. I need to focus on that and my deep breathing.
