Ever So Close

As we inch our way closer and closer to our referral, it looks like there has been a surprise batch of referrals made that have caught many off guard, even agencies, just 17 days after the last referrals.  The latest batch covers up to December 4th.  With the way referrals have been coming out, I thought for sure it would only cover up to December 1st.  They have covered three days worth of LIDs and two days of weekend.  This now means we are two days away from a referral.

Does this mean we will get our referral in the next batch? Maybe, unless they do only one day again.  It is very surreal knowing that we will be getting our referral in the next few weeks.  I am still trying hard to not get excited.  Last year at this time no referrals were made for over two months.  I really hope that's not the case now.

I guess we should start looking at getting things organized, like baby's room, clothes, car seat and of course, choosing a name.  Let the fun begin!

I have been following several blogs of couples waiting for referrals since a good friend of mine adopted a precious 18 months old from China 3 years ago. Your blog was one that I have followed, waiting for that referral. I look forward to following your blog in the days/weeks/months ahead as you travel to unite with your long awaited child. God bless you all.
