4 Months

Today marks 4 months of waiting for our referral and this month is supposed to be our month!

Our agency director asked us not to post our referral news to the internet until after we pass court. Of course, we can tell people over email, phone, etc but since the baby is not our child until after passing court, this is a way to respect the privacy of all involved.

Therefore, unless something changes, there will not be an announcement to our blog when we receive our referral. But I will email those of you I know and I will also continue to post how long we have been waiting. So, if you don't see a "5 month" post around November 1, then that means we should have our referral. I might even post periodically throughout the month if we are still waiting.

Most families in our agency get their referral news via email, so every time I hear my email "ding" I wonder if this is it. Oh, I can't wait!
