April's Referrals come and gone

April's referrals have come in. On the 18th anyone with a LID of late September through October 20th got their referrals. It is too bad it wasn't ALL of October. It is kinda frustrating the way they split the month up. I am still crossing my fingers that the referrals stay at 6 months. I guess I shouldn't complain because if I can wait 6 months I can wait 7 months. We still have not gotten our LID yet and probably won't until next month.

This last Tuesday we had 85 degree weather. This morning we woke up to 3 inches of snow. YUCK! Mike said Mother Nature is playing a cruel trick on us.

Evan just left an hour ago for a week long senior trip to New York City and Washington DC. It is hard to believe his senior year is coming to an end. In two weeks we will be doing his registration for Hesston College.

Docs at the CCAA

We have been informed that our documents are now in the hands of the CCAA. They will go over the forms and approve us (hopefully) and then match us with a child. Problem is this will take 6-8 months to do. Anyway, our dossier was delivered to them on April 5th. So the translating is done and we will just now wait for our LID (log in date) and then the count down begins.

I am of course stressed (as usual) because there are some rumors going around that CCAA is slowing down the referrals some. If that is true, it will take longer than 6 months and we won't have our little one home before Christmas. But, there is nothing I can do about it but sit back and wait now.

Last night we were at Menards and Morgan spotted a couple with a little Chinese girl. So of course I had to be nosy and find them. They have been home for 8 weeks with little Zoe. It was so neat to get to talk to them. They gave us lots of advice and told us some stories too. We stood there for 45 minutes talking to them. By the time we left, Mike, Morgan and I all got a chance to hold Zoe. What fun!
