Finally off the Merry-Go-Round

The last of my authenticated documents arrived today!


The whole process has seemed too long for it to look this simple in the end. You create the document, have it notarized, have it certified, send it to be authenticated… after a while you feel like you’ve been stuck on a Merry-Go-Round for 6 months and can’t get off.

After obsessively checking a few times to make sure nothing was amiss, I made photocopies, labelled the photos that I needed to include, and put it all in an envelope with the required fees. I will be hand delivering it to CCAI on Monday! I am crossing fingers that I will be DTC by Friday.

The next wait will be to become DTC (dossier to China), then LID (locked in). Then I will have to wait for LOA (letter of approval). LOA wait times have been quick lately, I hope to receive LOA in September.
