Hopefully we will receive our LID in the next 2-3 weeks, as well as pre-approval to adopt who we hope will be our son. Our social worker submitted our Letter of Intent (written a month ago) on Friday. Because he is designated as Special Needs and not Special Focus, we have to have our LID before they will give us preapproval to adopt him. So, fingers crossed that in the next 3 weeks we will have both our LID and most importantly...PREAPPROVAL!
