Finally, the day I've been working towards- DTC (dossier to china). The end of months of paper chasing and the beginning of months of waiting for a referral (and then, more paper chasing).
I joined the DTC August 2005 Yahoo Group today and have already met a new friend who will most likely be in my same travel group (same agency, same DTC date). I also joined a Secret Pal Present Swap. I'll be assigned a "pal" that I will send a baby present to each month until referral time and someone will send me an annonymous gift each month- anything that combines baby shopping with gift getting can't be bad.
