For those who are new to the China Adoption terminology, DTC = Dossier to China. Our dossier was mailed to China on the day the Summer Olympics began 08/08/08. To keep with the 08 spirit, the Olympics started at 8:08 PM but we found out that we were DTC at 4:00. Oh well.

We now wait for the beloved LID date which means Logged in Dossier. This is the official date our paperwork is registered in China. To equate this to pregnancy, DTC is conception and LID is confirmation. So once we receive our LID, we will officially be paper pregnant.

An Old Chinese Poem:

"The leaves break the bandage of the green stem, stretch themselves and form a green pool with untidy edges. Now the flower comes from out of the vast surface of the water, just like a very beautiful woman coming gracefully from her bath"
