LID...where are you?

On the 13th of this month, it will be three months since our dossier went to China and we still don't know what our LID (log in date) was. I'm hoping we were LID in early February, but it would be a really nice surprise to find out it was in January. On the other hand, it would be pretty disappointing to find out it was in March.

For those of you not "in the know" on all things adoption (in other words, YOU actually HAVE a life), the LID is basically the official start of the long wait until referral to a child. The wait between LID and referral is looking to be approx. 10 months now (it was 6-7 months when we started this process), but it's ever changing. If we were LID in early February, then we have 2 months of the long wait already under our belt!

Since we don't have word on our LID yet, why not take our LID Poll (in the right sidebar) and let us know what you all think based on your best guess.

OMG, I had no idea that you haven't received your LID yet! Oh, you poor thing! What's your agency saying about this?

I would really contact your agency on this. We were DTC in March and already have our LID. Good luck to you! (by the way, we are seriously considering using Lauren too, but will call her Ren)

Ugh! The wait is so hard!

A lot of my US friends have their LID's but my agency seems to take about 2 months to get ours out.

Hopefully yours is SOON! Looking forward to celebrating with you!

What comfort that I am not the only one waiting for the LID.... I know that this doesn't change your frustration, but know I feel and am living the same frustrations!!!!
