"Dossiers waiting to be logged in" ~ do you see mine??

"Wall of dossiers" ~ is mine here??

My agency recently sent out an email explaining why it takes so long for a log in date. My dossier was sent to our office in Beijing, which is down the road from the CCAA (China Center of Adoption Affairs). They actually walk the dossiers to the CCAA to ensure it's safe arrival, which I really appreciate! The CCAA will register the dossiers within 30 days...they are basically put in a pile (mine is probably on the bottom of that pile) and they go through the dossiers in order and register each one. It can take up to 8 weeks for the CCAA to send my agency the LID...let's see, my "ticker" on the top of the blog says it's been a little over a month ~ I promise I won't whine for the next 3 weeks about this-
*CAN YOU IMAGINE HOW WHINNY THIS BLOG WILL BECOME ONCE I GET MY LID AND I'M WAITING FOR OUR REFERRAL!? You may want to stop reading China Princess...I hope not, we are enjoying your company during this wait :)

Hi Jo,
The waiting is the hardest part and noone can blame you for complaining a little bit... I feel like it has been so long and can only imagine how hard it is to wait on your end! The best thing to do is keep busy and keep looking at things to remind you of what is to come. The wait will be more than worth it :) Love, Barb

I won't be leaving 'China Princess', I'm here with you for the long haul. Waiting is sooo incredibly hard, you are entitled to whine as much as you need to. I'm all ears and all heart!

Love, Miriam
