We are DTC!!!

Dear Family, Friends and Blog-Buddies,

Well, after 5 months and 11 days of being poked and prodded and subject to everything short of a full body cavity search, our paperwork is finally on it's way to China! We are pretty excited to finally declare ourselves "paper pregnant." Thank you all for your support and tolerance of Jenn's incessant China-adoption talk. Jenn's brother, James, commented recently that with as much as he has heard about her, it seems like we should have had Meili home for a couple of years by now! We are all just so excited. What a blessing for our family!

We now wait for the CCAA (China Center of Adoption Affairs) to register our paperwork and issue us a log-in date. That will be the day that the official countdown begins. Right now referrals are taking about 9 months but the wait is rumored to stretch to 10-12 months with travel happening 6-8 weeks after that. No worries! We have plenty to do to keep us busy in the meantime!!!

Please take a peek at our ultrasound photo. Can you see her in there??? The really weird thing is that this time it's Matt's!!!

Have a great day!

Matt, Jenn, Taylor, Audrey, Noah, and Xander
