No News Yet...Maybe Today?

For all the blog stalkers out there, I just wanted to let you know that no we have not received our referral yet. Rest assured I will update this blog the moment I get a chance after we get our call :) I am still hoping that maybe we will get some news today and hopefully not next Monday or Tuesday when we will be in the middle of nowhere in Northern Minnesota (meaning possibly no phone/internet access as we will be hiking around the shore of Lake Superior). How awful would that be if we returned to civilization only to find out we missed the call and had to wait until the next day to meet our daughter?

Truthfully I thought we would have a referral long before this, and funny as it seems, now that we should be getting closer the waiting is getting easier. I'm not allowing myself to think about it all day every day, maybe that's just a coping mechanism. I do however think about all the different calling scenarios every morning and figure out how that works with our schedules. Sometimes I feel like it's never really going to happen and somehow they forgot to put us on the wait list. I know, strange fear since we've only been waiting 4 months 2 weeks and 5 days, but that is what is going around in my head these days.

I thought you would have heard something sooner (us too) but fear not, they have not forgotten you! Hope you have a wonderful time hiking (sounds lovely) and I hope that next week is your week!!!!

If there is a delay in your case, my theory is that since you were open to take two children, maybe they are trying to accommodate both you guys as well as a pair of siblings - thus a delay?

I can only imagine what you (and all other parents waiting for their calls) are going through. But don't worry, the timing will be perfect, even if we can't see it now! Don't forget to enjoy your vacation! It's what they are for! Love you guys.

Still nothing? Me either! Sounds like you are holding up well, though, and every day is just one day closer! Come on phones, RING!!!

Nope, nothing on our end either. I'm thinking the odds are good for next week!!! Enjoy the weekend :)

I just noticed a new blog on the FBI list with the same age range as you! I hope that doesn't effect you!! It's been almost 5 months, you really should be very close!!!
