what's better than DTC?

In the long process that is the paper chase of an adoption, there is not much better of a feeling than when the dossier is finally complete!

Even better than that is when it has been certified and authenticated and is ready to head overseas.

And even better than that is when you make a road trip to Alabama to visit with friends, and just happen to stop by your agency the day that precious package of paperwork is headed to China.

But even better than that is whose dossier is making that trip with ours tonight.  Such a fun little boost for us to find out together ~ while we are visiting ~ that we're both officially DTC as of today!

standing in the office at Lifeline, holding our dossiers before they leave the country
and wondering, can the Garden Hotel in GZ handle our families together again?  
Sweet Natalie girl, we're one major step closer!
