We are officially Dossier-To-China today. This means that our paperwork was approved by the powers-that-be in the US and was re-approved by various Chinese Embassies here in the States. We are taking this as a good sign.
Next step: our paperwork is “logged in”, meaning that it is officially there and the officials in charge of adoptions are starting to work on it—getting it translated, etc. After that, we hope for an approval notice. This will likely take 3-6 months.
And so we wait.
And, just a little bit, to hope.
