WE ARE LID!!!!!

When I pulled up my e-mail at the office this morning I had a great surprise from our agency....We were LID (logged in database) on 2/17/06 (we were DTC on 1/13)!!!

It feels SOOOO good to finally be logged in. We are now officially a "waiting" family!

Our agency said to expect at least a 10 month wait from LID to referral and then 5-8 weeks until travel, which could mean a referral around Christmas time and travel in February 2007. Maybe we'll meet Lauren around Valentine's Day. Now that would be the best Valentine's gift ever!

Today is Joe's birthday, so it's extra nice that we got news of our LID today! We'll be celebrating this weekend!

Congrats on your LID! Two months into the wait already. Your predictions could be true - they're as good as any. Maybe we'll start seeing the referral times shorten. Who knows? Sure does sound good though.

Congratulations! Apparently the 3rd Thursday in April is lucky: today is the 1 year anniversary of our referral!

I hope it speeds up for you because most agencies don't travel in Feb (or not till the very end)because of Chinese New Year and everything being closed and hotel rates being $$$...but it would make for an awsome pre-trip!!
