AAARRRGGGHHH!

Been a little down lately. First of all, the very good thing is that there was a sibling referral yesterday for the Zubers for twin 4 year old girls. I am so happy for them .They have been waiting quite a while. And today another family got a sibling referral also. But, up til then, there has been a long dry spell again for referrals. GIRL referrals especially. We were hoping for a referral between Thanksgiving and Christmas and now that Christmas is approaching, and nothing has been going on, we are probably looking at a Feb referral, which means an April court date, which means going to get her in May!?!? Everything is just taking so long. I did find out we are #15 on the list!

Your funk sounds perfectly normal under all these stressful circumstances. It will improve...especially when you see your sweet baby girl's face. Praying for you and your family.

hugs to you--

Though I know nothing makes the wait better, I just thought I would share that our dossier left on 4/7/08 and we were open to female 0-4years. We received our referral on 11/20/08 for a 2 month old. On or around 10/3/08 I had asked Toni about where we were on the "list" and she had said 24 families were ahead in general and 14 families were ahead for just a girl. It turned out, even with my counting down, there were still 12 families ahead on the general list and 8 on the girl only list at the time of our referral. I would just like to say that it sounds like you are pretty close, keep hanging on!!

I saw you were #15. Here is some awesome news.....we were told we were #14 -and within TWO weeks, we dropped to #6. So even though there are dry spells, when it rains it pours! So you are close and will be suprised how fast your number in line will change!

I think we are right there behind you #16 for girls. I do think that things will move quickly after Christmas. Once all of the families with referrals pass court, I am guessing the HOH will fill up again quickly.

I know it hs been a difficult month for your family but I think you'll be hearing wonderful news soon.

I can completely relate to your funk. It is only normal. God does have a plan.. If you asked me a week ago I would tell you that I was praying.. "I believe, help me with my unbelief"... Now seeing my girls.. I know.. He does have a plan.
I have just now prayed for you and your family!....
blessings to you!

I can totally, 100% relate to your post.

Have we met? My name is Courtney- my husband and I are going through CHI as well. Mind my asking when your dossier went off exactly? Ours was on it's way to Ethiopia on July 18th.

Thanks!!

And hang in there- I know it can be beyond tricky at times....
