Rumor has it that referrals may get through January 22nd. That's 10 days and sounds WAY too good to be true. Wouldn't it be great though??!!
I'm trying not to get my hopes up, but it's really hard not to be excited. On the Rumor Queen forum there is someone with a January 22nd LID that is saying her agency told them they should have a referral by next week. I find it strange that an agency would make these types of promises before referrals actually get here...I know my agency doesn't do this AT ALL. No promises...no way, no how.
On another note, I was flipping through my pocket calendar today and realized that I hadn't written in our LIDversaries for the rest of this year. I got to August 17th and found myself writing 30 months...that's 2.5 years! At that point my eyes filled with tears and I just couldn't go any further. Who would have ever imagined it would take this long. September through December will have to just stay blank for now.
I also wanted to mention that I got to meet a local mom, Ronda, her youngest son, and her beautiful daughter Ella yesterday for lunch. Ella has been home for six months and turned four years old while they were in China. Ronda, I really enjoyed meeting you and your little ones and hearing all about your China trip experience. Ella is such a happy and friendly little girl and I can tell that she's a perfect fit for your family. I don't know how China does it, but they always seem to get it just right.
Well, everyone...keep those fingers and toes crossed for that 10 day referral batch. It's just the thing we need to lift our spirits right now.
