37 Months

We have been marking every month from LID to referral, so I suppose it would be silly to stop now...although it seems silly to be marking the months when it has been over three years...
I know, I know, we are so close. We are cautiously optimistic that we will be in the next batch, but we are no fools! What is that saying, "Fool me once, shame on you, fool me 37 times, shame on me?" We longer hold our breath in anticipation.

(I could have chosen a different picture to mark "37", but this one's for Adam and Tracy)

This post from our agency is from April 3 - with so much going on with the trip to Haiti and posting pictures from the trip, I forgot to post it. Ahhh, thank you, Lord, for the distraction. I have often said that Patricia and Philippe have helped us through the last year to Olivia, and Olivia will help us through the last year to them...God is good.

America World is pleased to announce that we received 5 healthy female referrals today! Families receiving referrals were logged into the China Center of Adoption Affairs on March 7, 2006 (group 251). The little girls are currently located in the Guangdong Province and range in age from 6 to 29 months. Please join us in congratulating these families, and in praying for them as they prepare to travel.

Ok, folks, we are GROUP 252!!! Hang on!!!!

I'm also so glad you spent time with P & P in person first. They are your oldest and second oldest and it seems like a sweet blessing to have them seared into your hearts before miss olivia makes her appearance.

Aargh! The suspense is killing me! I think you are right about your children getting you through each others' adoptions. Only the Lord would think of doing something so sweet! Bless Him!

Love it! What a beautiful British Racing Green MINI you chose in honor of us, too. And did you ever think you could say you would be NEXT for your agency???????

AMAZING. These next few months are going to be some of the best of your life. Hang on!!!!!!! It is quite a ride - so incredible.
