We found out today that our Log In Date (LID) is September 5.  That means on Labor Day, our dossier was logged in China.

So, before you ask:
1.  No, E will not be here by Thanksgiving.
2.  Yes, we still have a very long wait.
3.  No, we can not make this go any faster.  If we could, we would.

What this really means is that our waiting time for our Letter of Approval (LOA) starts counting on 9/5.  Right now, the wait for LOA is anywhere from 80-125 days.  So, a LONG time.  And, that's just for our LOA.  There's still more stuff to do and more waiting after that.

No one said this was going to be easy...

Hi! Your Emmilene is gorgeous and I love the name. I have adopted 4 times and still get my kicks from watching the process of others. My 4th one was SN from China and I will tell you that you are in "hurry up and wait and HURRY UP!" process. Once the LOA comes and then TA it is not long before you are on a plane!

I think she looks really cute with a buzz.

Good luck and congratulations!

Our LID is 9/2. Seriously jealous of your update and new pics! Maybe something will hurry up for both of us and we can get our girls home sooner rather than later....

Just went reading back through your blog and discovered that your E is only one day older than my W! :^)

Congratulations! Your daughter is precious. Have you contacted nw030608 on RQ? I believe her son has the same SN as your daughter, and they live in New England.

Thanks so much for your nice comment - means a lot. Just think, soon that beautiful daughter of yours will be sitting in her car seat peeking at you in the rear view mirror saying "Mama Mama" YAY xxxxxx
