"An agency has posted that the CCAA’s internal box has changed to show matches through April 3rd.
Usually we get a lot of agencies reporting this when it happens… but with today being Christmas Eve? We may not see agencies confirming it until Monday.
I’ve been peaking in occasionally this morning, but our out of town family will begin arriving soon and then I won’t be able to check in as often.
With only one agency saying it, it’s hard to give it an R rating. It is definitely not an R4 or R5 until we get more agencies saying it, though.
If the cut off is the 3rd, that would be very disappointing (unless you happen to be included, of course). Here are the projections. I really don’t want to have to make a smaller column."
WE ARE AN APRIL 3rd FAMILY!!!!!!!!! It appears our time is edging closer, and closer.......what an amazing Christmas Gift!
"Welcome to Child Referral
|CCAI's LID - |
China has matched up until March 31, 2006! Which means WE ARE NEXT when the next set of referrals come through. It will be a long month or more!

....we both jumped out of our skin, and then poor Paige freaked out more when she saw her mama was really freaked out......
1st we shut off Daddy's plasma T.V., (I would not want to live through the experience of something bringing harm to Daddy's T.V.)
2nd we started reading all the Toot & Puddle books we picked out together at the library
3rd within a few minutes, Paige says, "I want to look at the sky and see if I see rain yet." So off we go to the patio, where I can see the traffic behind our house is at a standstill and fire engine lights......
4th "Hmmmm......Paige lets go out the front of the house and see what's going on"
.........and this is what greeted my eyeballs........do you see the flipping FIRE TRUCK & SMOKE that is DIRECTLY across the lake from our house?!?!?!?! That lightning bolt started a fire in the conservation area next to our house!!! OMG!
........It takes a few seconds for my brain to process what my eyeballs are seeing, and then Paige & I race back to the house, & "Smart Mommy In An Emergency Situation" grabs her CAMERA and goes back out to take PICTURES, by the time I got there the flames were low.....phew...
I tell Paige to get dressed (she was in a nightgown) and think to myself, "Get cat, get dogs, get Paige & get Mommy and Paige's sleeping blankets".......(NO THOUGHT to the house insurance papers, pictures, passports, birth certificates, nope just the cow blankets Paige & I sleep with!)
Now mind you, while these thoughts are racing through my head, Paige is running around the house in underwear freaking out like her mother (poor kid is doomed).
But then after a call to Daddy, who called our neighbor Bruce, who went out and surveyed the wildfire situation and declared an all clear......Paige put back on her nightgown & Mommy had 2 glasses of wine.
