Loving Lily

Our journey to China to bring a little girl home to her family.

Every day brings us closer to Lily

We received our Log-In-Date (LID) for our dossier: 10/28. That is good news. Our dossier did not get lost in the mail. It has been translated into Chinese and is waiting on someone's desk pile for the right person to read it and then sign our travel approval letter. The average wait from LID to Travel Approval is 73 days, sometimes sooner, sometimes later. It's much too late for us to travel in December. This is to give you, dear reader, and idea of what we're waiting for and when we might expect to travel.

I had a portrait fundraiser last month and raised about $1100. Thank-you, Lord! It was a whole lot of work, and we still have a ways to go, but every dollar helps! Also, I have some adorable antique pictures of my boys to cherish as well. I may have another similar fundraiser in the spring to cover some of Lily's medical expenses. The pictures all turned out really cute, and I think everyone who participated was glad to have done so.

We've applied to several grants, but we haven't received any word on any of them yet.

This is just a shortie to let you all know where where we are.

Thanks for reading my ramblings.
