LID - July 5, 2006

Congratulations again!

We have received confirmation that your dossier was logged into the CCAA on July 5, 2006. Right now the wait time between your log in date and referral is approximately 12 months. Please note that if you are adopting a special needs child this time frame does not apply to you. Wait for special needs families from the time the CCAA receives your letter of intent to the time you receive a travel letter is about three months.

If you have any questions or need anything during the wait time, please feel free to contact your Family Coordinator.

Blessings,

Melissa B.
Asia Family Coordinator
Dossier Coordinator

I looked back at all the guesses for my LID, and Sandy was the closest with her guess of July 4th. Thanks for playing, everybody!

*********************************************************

p.s. I finally have one of those tickers on my blog! I put it at the bottom so it wouldn't overlap with my header, though. It's so cute - check out the butterfly!

    Congrats on your LID. The end of a long, arduous paperchase is always a good milestone.

    That's great! Your LID is the same as my DTC (except for the year) just another fun thing we have in common :) Has your DTC group voted on a name yet? I'm in the July Dragonflies and have been obcessed with dragonflies ever since. Another name our group likes was July Firecrackers.

    YAY!! I am so excited for you!! What great timing too; being able to travel next summer when school is out! Hopefully your wait will be a little less than 12 months.
    Your ticker is adorable and crows are NOT. I HATE the nasty things! They used to eat all the cherries off my tree and poop all over my porch! In Asia, we had ravens which were JUST AS NASTY.

    Congrats I emailed CCAI and no word yet on my LID who knows we may still have the same date or close. Can't wait to celebrate with you.

    Awesome!!! You done good!

    So exciting! It must be nice to know that things are falling into place.

    Hey, Congratulations! We just finished the last piece of paperwork for our dossier today. Wahoo! Unfortunatley our agency only processes them once a month, so our LID will be exactly one month after yours, Aug. 5th. I'm still thrilled though, because honestly I was starting to think it would never happen!

    I want to add a ticker to mine - which language of ticker did you copy? Did you just go into the html and paste it on the bottom of your page??? Thanks in advance - I am learning all this stuff!!

    And congrats on your LID - hoping we are right behind you!!

  • At 5:30 AM, Blogger Kristin said…

    Woo-hoo!!!

    Gosh, your DTC to LID was pretty short... sign of things to come???

     
  • At 1:34 PM, Blogger Christi said…

    Yea!! Let the official waiting begin : )

     
  • At 2:52 PM, Blogger Sandy said…

    Awesome news! That's also my birthday so I take it as a good sign!

     
  • At 2:49 AM, Blogger Ford & Alyson said…

    Too Good! Great news. CELEBRATE!!!

    And just know that the "Wait" will fly by. Really. Honest.

    OK, I'm lying but waiting is better than chasing because you're getting closer to forever hugging Jillian!
