WE ARE FINALLY DTC!!!
We are finally through (for now) with the mountain of precious documents that we've been working on for the last 5 months. They should arrive at the C*CAA on Monday morning. With Ashley, this paperchase took a total of 14 months....FOURTEEN months.....so 5 was super fast for us :)
Now we wait for the LOA, (letter of acceptance) where China formally says YES, Asher is OURS :) Don't even get me started on how long this took last time...ok, you asked...126 days. However, that was not the norm for that season of "trends" and we're hoping whoever the slow "review guy" was that had that dossier is FAR AWAY from this one! I'm praying the fastest, best "review guy" gets their hands on ours this time and turns it around in record time. One family got theirs back in 30 days recently and while I'm not holding my breath for that, heck even 50 days sounds awesome compared to last time!
Also, if you followed along last time, you know that when I get frustrated with the wait, I go SHOPPING. (clearance isle of course, we're adopting and have zero extra:) SO soon I'll post a few bargains I got while I was thinking bad thoughts about the UPS man that lost our document :)
