Still Waiting Here

Well, we have come to the end of another week with no referrals. I have come to absolutely hate Fridays, especially Friday afternoons, cuz chances are there will be no referral phone call. And I for the first time in my life get excited about Mondays, because the office is open again. And today I found out that the CHI worker that would be calling us is taking a week off the second week of March. So I wonder if that means no referrals during that week? Or what? Hopefully we would have gotten our call by then. We have passed the 36 week mark. In fact, I think we are now waiting 37 weeks. I cannot believe I am losing track of what week we are on when at one point, I focused on it. I know very well that each day that passes is one day closer to referral day. We are now working on redoing our fingerprints because they will expire before we get to travel. Fingerprints are good for 15 months, and ours expires in May. I cannot believe we probably will not even be bringing her home until summer possibly! I hope to God it will not run into August when courts close. Now, that would be agonizing. Lord please let this happen soon!

Oh Fran,
I keep thinking every time that I check on your blog you will HAVE your little girl's referral, but NOT YET!!!! I know it will have to be soon. I will say some prayers for you! You have to be very close to #1, right? Blessings to you as you wait.

I check over here often hoping to hear referral news. I think next week will be your week! Hang in there. Praying for you!

Crazy, huh? I'm sure referrals will still come in when Toni is gone. I think she mentioned on Facebook that she would be bummed to miss out on calling her families with referrals!!
