The ball is in my court now! We got the 1800A approval today!! We got it back so much faster than I expected. So now I have to get it notarized. Unfortunately I cannot find a notary until Monday. Then I will fed ex it along with all the other documents for our dossier to a courier in Sacramento for State Certification. When I get that back I either drive to LA to the Chinese Consulate to leave it all there for Authentication or I find another courier to avoid driving there with the girls, ugh! Then I will have to go back to pick it up and then finally I can send my dossier to my agency to send to China. At that time we have our DTC (Dossier to China Date) and wait for our LID (Log in Date). Then the long wait for LOA (Letter of acceptance) and then all of the new things required for the Hague Treaty are done.
I like when the ball is in my court so I am in control!
On another note, I got this from Ann of Red Thread showing the letter she sent to the Orphanage and a picture album we sent to Lily with her letter. She said she would get it in two days. So if the orphanage chooses to give it to her, she may now know that she has a family.
