I got an email this afternoon notifying us that our Log-In-Date is October 23rd! This means that on October 23rd, our Dossier was logged-in to the CCAA's computer. Our travel date will be based on this date, and everyone who has the same LID as ours will travel to China at the same time. I don't know how they determine when our travel date will be, so at this point, I'm still assuming it will be 5-8 months from now, although, I have heard of it happening sooner for some people. So we just need to be prepared for the possibility of it happening fast, just in case!
We are now waiting for our Letter Seeking Confirmation, which, as I understand it, will be the final, "official" approval for us to adopt Shi-Lin, and we'll be getting emails updating us on where our Dossier is in the process.
