We just received our Log In Date (LID) for our dossier. October 22, so the countdown begins for the letter of acceptance (LOA). Should be early next year sometime. YEAH!

Here is a picture of our current family. We adopted Ravenna Dec. 12, 2006, she was 10.5 months old. She keeps us entertained and has changed us for the better. We decided to start the adoption process again rather quickly due to the lengthening timeline with China. We also chose to adopt a special needs boy or girl, and began the paper chase for our dosssier again. We had been working on it for about 6 months and received a call from our adoption agency on Friday, September 14. They had 4 profiles for us to look at and they were all boys. That was the first time we laid eyes on pictures of Hudson (Wu Mo Wen). He was born on July 25, 2005 so he will be Ravenna's big brother by about 6 months. We then called them Monday to let them know he would be a perfect fit for our family of soon to be 4. We now begin the process of waiting to bring him home. In my opinion this is the hardest part of the adoption process.
