I just got the email…we are officially DTC (documents to China) today! Our dossier was airmailed to China and it will be received on Monday. Since we already have preapproval to adopt Alex, they will put our dossier on the fast track. It will take about a month to translate our dossier, then we will receive an official LID (login date). Approximately two months after receipt of the LID, we will receive the official referral and paperwork to sign for Alex. Then, about 3 months after that, we will be in China!
For now, we have three months of waiting. There is no paperwork to do. We are finished for the time being! In three months, we will start the Travel Phase and have a whole other pile of paperwork to do which will take around 3 months.
YAY! So happy about being DTC!
