Un-friggin-believable!!!

I really thought this would be the day I would be posting here that referrals where on the way, but instead, here's the latest rumor! Apparently, the CCAA will be holding off on sending referrals due to the Swine Flu outbreak! We haven't heard it officially from our agency yet, but the Rumor Queen is reporting that CCAA has informed a European & a Canadian agency that they will postpone sending referrals or travel approval for 20 - 30 days and then reevaluate the situation. I certainly hope this is merely a rumor, with little to no truth, but I have feeling we have just been bumped by the Swine Flu! I'm in shock & numb! I hope to give an update soon!

37 Months (should be our last!)...

I didn't think we would need it, but I found a "37"! This should be our last LID anniversary without a referral! All indications are we should be in the next referral group! To think in about 3 weeks we'll know who are daughter is & finally be able to hold her picture is too cool! I'll finally be able to buy more clothes, some that are more likely to be her correct size! We'll know when she was born, where she is living, how much she weighs (at her last check-up). I can finally tell Jeanie she can give us a baby shower! And everyone will know we weren't crazy and made this whole adoption thing up! It really is happening & we're still excited & scared too death at the same time! I hope she likes us! Be on the lookout for a picture of Micalee in less than a month! OMG! How cool is that!

Missed it by that much.....

Well, our agency has received its referrals today, and they only received them for their 3/8/06 families, so we almost made it in! There have actually been a couple of reports of 3/9/06 families from other agencies getting referrals (but most likely a mistake in reported LID). So, anyway, we are 99.9% sure we are NEXT!!!!! And that should mean a late April or early May (most likely early May) referral!!!! This time next month, we should be holding a picture of Micalee and begin planning for travel to China to bring her home! FINALLY!!!!! We'll keep everyone posted! I'm sure I'll be a nervous wreck until then. You never know what could happen! There are some 3/7/09 folks still waiting to hear about their referrals (either lost, mis-reported LID, or something!). I won't be completely calm until we're holding her in China! Calm?!?! No, maybe not calm, but relieved! Stay tuned.........
