Yeah!!! 8 Month LIDiversary!

What a wonderful day! Today is my 8 month LIDiversary, celebrating my file being in China for 8 whole months! Wow! What a wonderful feeling! As rumours of a large referral batch dance through the adoption world, it gives us another reason to celebrate! If the referrals go deep into September 2005 LID's (as the rumours are leading us to believe) it could finally be the beginning of the speed-up we've been praying for. What a blessing that would be!

What all this means in layman's terms is that if this month CCAA refers a full month's worth of LID's and if this is the new trend, then I could be seeing a referral late next summer (August Bridge???) and travel in the fall!

As you can see, there are still a lot of if's but this girl is celebrating 8 months today and that allows me the opportunity to dream!

Still enjoying the flower celebration too. Nothing extravagant. Just a little $4.99 bundle of carnations from the grocery store but oh those flowers make me smile every time I see them and think of beautiful baby Hannah!

  4. Happy 8 Months Down!

    Remember my predictions... you guys have to be home before the end of summer so I can go get Mia in the fall! I'm sticking to this belief... or delusion. Whatever!

  12. Happy 8th anniversary Catherine. I've been reading your blog for awhile and have found it soooo inspiring uplifting, not to mention funny. You are well over the half way mark now and getting close to the home stretch.
