I Need An Epidural, Please! Or.......
I'm gonna strap myself to a rocket like Paige and shoot me over to China to find out when the heck we are going to get our referral!
Here is the reason I am so excited this month: referrals (the pictures of the babies and their pertinent information for the waiting parents) are due to hopefully arrive this week.
Last month China matched waiting families whose paperwork was logged in in China through March 24, 2006. We are logged in April 3, 2006--VERY important information for a waiting parent.
Well there are rumblings around the Chinese Adoption Community that China may refer waiting families with log in dates through March 29, 2006. When I read this I REALLY paid attention! We've been waiting so long, that you get immune to a timeline because you just get burnt in the long run......
Well, if they do get up to the 29th, we will receive our Lily's referral NEXT month!!!! Holy Shasta people!!! But this probably isn't going to happen and it won't be until November or December, there is a slight chance this could happen! So I am on high alert and ready for my epidural about yesterday!
