Not for us but...



I never thought that I would be so excited for another family. Someone from our agency announced their referral yesterday. They had been waiting almost exactly 24 months!! They had asked for either gender 0-4 years old and rec'd the referral for a little girl born in July. She's absolutely gorgeous with a head full of thick hair. I wish that they had a blog so you could all see, but they don't. I swear I shed some tears for them, they've waited so long. So now that means we take one step forward...wooohooo!! Only two familes ahead of us for our agency. It seems that referrals are beginning to trickle in too. A family from another agency rec'd their referral I think about a month ago. Bring it on....I hope this means that things will begin to pick up referral wise.

Ann,

YOU are that person to me! The one I'll be shedding tears of joy for when a referral comes. I am so glad to see that there is movement, and I will continue to pray that you are joined with your sweet child and that your spirits remain high.

Hey Ann!
Molly here down in Orlando...mom to Malone from Taiwan. I pop into your blog every week or so as you guys are on Matt and I's thoughts often...we CANNOT wait to hear good news on your referral! I was giving Malone a bath the other night and just thinking of you and how I couldn't wait till you are doing all of the fun little things like that for your child, and just how far behind you all this crappy waiting will be then! I swear that when you do post the news (soon, hopefully!) that all of us in the adoption world here in orlando are going to want to jump in our cars and come give you guys big hugs! Can't wait-
Molly

Every day I jump on here and on Hannah Claire and Baby William's blogs and wait for you all to get a referral! All 3 of you are keeping me on the edge of my seat. I hope one morning I find that all 3 of you have good baby news. Keeping my fingers crossed for you!
