A wonderful online friend Mary-Mia and her husband Rod (of 'Do They Have Salsa in China? fame) are currently waiting for the referral of their first child who we currently refer to as 'Funshine.' Mary-Mia and Rod have requested either a boy or girl from China so 'Funshine' is his/her current nickname.
Mary-Mia's LID is July 14, 2005. Wow...she's been waiting a loooong time! I would love nothing more than to shout from the rooftops soon that Funshine's referral has arrived!!! The rumour sites seem to be indicating a cut-off date for this batch of referrals of July 13, 2005. Can you believe it? Mary-Mia and Rod may miss out on this group by just 1 day! Urgh!!! They know this and are doing ok handling it (ok...maybe not too 'ok' at times as I'm sure I won't either! I believe chocolate is the current drug of choice!) But right now they'd just like to know one way or the other. Are they in or out for July referrals? They know that the perfect child is the one that they'll be matched to but the wait is the hard part!
Praying for you Mary-Mia and Rod! Can't wait until you can introduce us to Funshine for the very first time!
