So basically, we have submitted our dossier for Lifeline to have authenticated then forward to CCAA (China Center for Adoption Affairs) or DTC (Dossier To China). Ten days or so after DTC we will be logged in (LID or Log In Date), which will be an official landmark in the paper process. I don't know what the new expected wait to travel from referral is, but I'm guessing late summer, early fall.
I want to praise God for His amazing plans and moving in the hearts of those who seek Him. There are three other families in our church who have responded to the call to adopt, and we are so thankful to be in the company of David & April, Dale & Tina and Tino & Ruth. That's four families in our church on the same journey to God's heart. This is not a large church, folks. We average an attendance of 100! Certainly God isn't just speaking adoption into the hearts of people - He's working in missions, children's ministry, youth, music and calling us to be a house of prayer!
And now, it has occurred to me I haven't posted pix of the kiddos in a while, so here ya' go.
Yeah, Baby, there's what the Approval looks like! It's not called an I171H anymore.
In all the busy-ness, we found time to visit the park.
Maybe there's a different way down ...
That's my Kayden, always on the lookout for flowers for Mom!
My little man hasn't been feeling well
But this one feels good!
This is the way we watch TV, watch TV, watch TV ...
