DTC! Dossier to China

We got a call last week from our caseworker to let us know that our dossier was going to China! A dossier  (dôsēˌā) is basically a stack of papers containing information about every aspect of our life! We are super excited to finally be at this point in our journey.  Now we are waiting for our documents to be recorded that they were received in China this is called login date (or LID), which can take anywhere from three to six weeks…then we can receive a referral of a child.  Our caseworker said we are looking at Feb. for that call - so soon we will start sleeping with our phones as the call will come    in the middle of the night! Please keep us in your prayers.
But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience. Romans 8:25

Dear little one-Soon we will finally get to see your face and learn what the Lords plan for our family is. We are all getting excited to know who you are…even little guy talks about you often and calls you “his baby in China”. The hard part will come once we know who you are and have to wait till we can travel to bring you home. We pray for you daily and love you already.
