DTC means "Dossier to China." We were informed today that our paperwork has been mailed to China for our second adoption. This is an important milestone in the adoption process, and now the next date for which we wait is the LID ... "Log in Date" ... the day our dossier is logged in in China.

I also read this article today that says China is considering scrapping its one-child policy. I don't know how that will affect us at the moment. Guess we'll just have to wait and see. It's going to be a long wait no matter what.

Year of the Rat

Happy Chinese New Year!

2008 is the "Year of the Rat." For more fun information about the "Year of the Rat," click here.

We're not having as big of a shindig as we did last year. Not to mention the fact that you are supposed to have a feast on the eve of the New Year. Kind of hard for us to feast on Ash Wednesday. Today we're going to have lunch at a nearby Chinese restaurant. Then tonight, the church youth group meets at our house, so we'll probably have them help us celebrate in some way.
