We were officially LID on March 10, 2015!!!
LID = Logged In Date
Our dossier was sent to China (DTC) on Thursday, February 26, 2015 and we were offically LID on Tuesday, March 10, 2015.
Thank you, Lord!!!
Next Step: Find our child! We have to match with our child now before we can really go any further in the process. Our dossier will go a little ways through the process (I believe through translation), but eventually, it cannot go any further in the China process until we have a child matched with us. If we match soon, we are still on track to travel in 5-7 months. However, if the matching process takes longer, we have no idea how long it will take before we travel. So, we are praying for a quick match. We are so ready to see our little girl or little boy's face. We are so ready to know all we can about him or her. We are so ready to pray for him or her by name and with a face attached to that name!
So, please pray for us to find our child soon!
Our other prayer request is that we will receive a grant (or grants). We have applied for three so far and may apply for more soon. One grant does not review this current round of applicants for awhile and will not announce awards until June. I am not sure when one of the grants will respond if we have received any grant money or not. And, one grant should respond within the next couple of weeks. We applied for it about 6 weeks ago and we were told to expect 6-8 weeks before hearing anything. We are praying that we will receive news about this grant soon!
Thank you for your prayers! We are one huge step closer to China!!
