We received an email from our agency that our Dossier (paperwork) was logged in with China on 11/04/05, so it took a little more than two weeks for it to all be translated from English to Chinese and reviewed. Our 6-8 month wait officially begins now. So, let me attempt to update our projected timeline:
10-14-05 Dossier sent to China (DTC) (Date to China)
11-04-05 Dossier Logged In (LID) Log in Date (It generally takes 6-8 months from the LID to get a referral
Projected Referral Time June 2006???????
Projected Travel Time Now August 2006????
Our timeline is a bit different than what we had anticipated, but God holds the plan, not us. If there's one thing I've learned throughout this entire process, it's that God's will be done! We'll go when he's ready for us to go. Please continue to keep us in your prayers!

I am on several different forums and chat groups that center around international adoption, and sometimes I wonder why I put myself through it. The rumor mill is running rampid that referrals that have recently been taking 6-7 mos. may now be pushed back to 8 or 9 months. I pray to God that this isn't true. We're going to trust that God has a plan already in the works for Troy and I, and "let go and let God." Only He knows when the perfect time will be when Karsynn is ready for us to come and get her. If you are a person of faith, then please say a prayer for us.
