WE ARE 8 MONTHS DTE!
Part of me is not excited about this number, as our original wait period was not to be this long.
But another [BIGGER] part of me is EXSTATIC that we are 8 months along!
Because it means we are getting OH.SO.CLOSE. to seeing our little one(s) face(s)!!!!!
We are still #2 for unrelated kiddos. Number 3 for an infant boy. Number 4 for siblings.
There is AWESOME movement going on in ET and with AWAA! Very exciting! The new agency MOWCYA is ROCKN' IT! More families have received Court Dates, passed Court, and have received travel dates to go pick up their children! So, even though movement is slow on the referral front (there are still referrals, but just not from any of the lists we are on), the positive movement and energy is encouraging!
Although we wait with hopeful expectancy to hear this week, we are not carrying the expectation of hearing by Friday. We are, however, hoping and praying that if we do not get our referral this week, that it will be SOON! Very Soon!
I just try to imagine getting THE CALL, and I can't quite picture the reality of it! To REALLY be discussing the very child or children God has CHOSEN for Jeff and me! Looking into his or their eyes (Caitlin will send us pics via email). REALLY!?!?!? WOW!!!
Well, until that day comes, I will just continue to enjoy dreaming of what it will be like........and listening for that AWAA special ring I recently put on my phone! HHHMMMMMM.......should I start taking my cell into each treatment with me at work!?!?!? Or would that feel like I was waiting to watch water boil?!?!???!?
