28 weeks now = 7 months

We have been waiting 28 weeks now, which in my book is 7 months. (being a NICU nurse, 28 weeks is 7 months along). Last month I got some folks stirred up by declaring my 24 weeks as official 6 months. We sent our dossier in June 3. I count by weeks. Like when you are pregnant. If you just say the months like a lay person, it would seem we arent 7 months until Jan 3. But, I cannot help the way my mind works and the way when I work in the NICU, time is counted in weeks. Oh well, never mean to confuse anyone or stir up anything, but I am excited about this and cannot wait until we wont be obsessing about "now do you mean weeks/where are you in line/how many days/months/etc." In a couple of months none of this will matter. As a matter of fact, there were 8 referraks in the last 2 days!!!! We are so excited for all the families. Then, the obsessing begins with getting the referral packet and the courtdate and travel and packing. They say that this post referral wait is the worst. The agony of wait after you've seen the precious face. Cannot wait to see the precious face. In all the 8 referrals, there was only 1 baby girl, so we only move up a smidge. I guess we are #14ish maybe.

Thanks Fran! I totally forgot about that Guest Home. Now I'm really hoping we can get in there. It looks great.
Merry Christmas!
