Re: CCAI Log-In Date & Packet

Congratulations! Your dossier has been logged in by the China Center of Adoption Affairs.

Your official dossier log-in date (LID) is: 12/24/2007

We couldn't believe it! To find out on New Year's Eve that we were logged in on Christmas Eve!

Talk about having a great holiday! We really celebrated last night! Scott had bought some champagne in anticipation of the upcoming news, so we brought that with us when we went over to our good friends the Jones' house last night to ring in the new year.

It is the best Christmas/New Year's present ever! (Be warned Scott, I may expect something every New Year's Eve from now on -ha ha!)

We really couldn't believe how fast we got logged in! It was only sent on Dec 17th, and they only received it on 21st! When we were told 2-4 weeks to be logged in and maybe up to 8 weeks to get notified of the date, I got a best case/worst case scenario in my mind. I figured best case we'd know by Jan 14th and worst by Feb 14th. I can't believe it was so soon! After all the USCIS paperwork took 3 months! And that is from the good-ol-USA! Go China!
