5 Days Closer!!

This month CC*AA matched 5 days worth of LID's which means I'm 5 days closer to Hannah!! Any month that we match 5 days or more means that my calculations of a referral date stay the same or get closer and I'm one happy gal!! This keeps my current guesstimation as a May 2009 referral with travel in July. Wahoo!!

I know that 5 days is not a lot but given the fact that a year ago there was talk that the CC*AA might be closed for up to 4 months due to the upcoming Ol*ympics, I'm thrilled that they're still offering referrals at all!

I have dear friends who missed the cutoff by just 2 days and my heart hurts for them but am so happy to know that next month is their month! Looking forward to celebrating Alyzabeth An's referral with you Alyson and Ford!

5 days closer to Hannah friends and happy to be sharing that news with you!

PS - You may notice the addition of a cute little candy stick topped with a ladybug in the pic above. (Yah...it's not there now!) It was a fun little gift from one of my coworkers. It's so neat to be encouraged by so many of you and I am thankful for each and every one of you! Those I know if real life and those who are bloggy friends, each play an important part in my journey to Hannah. I'm so glad you're sharing the ride with me and your love, encouragement and prayers mean more than you'll ever know!! Thank you!

  10. YAY!! Next summer this time you will be on your way...was also going to ask if you have seen a plastic case to hold a soother ( or dummy as they call them over here!)...i had never seen them in canada...my friends over here have one and thought if you would be interested, I could pick one up for Hannah...unfortunately I don't have a pic of it to show you...maybe Boots online would have them...just let me know!

  12. Thanks so much for stopping by our blog and saying "Hello". It was great seeing Don again and meeting Be for the first time. They are definitely the the dynamic duo soon-to-be trio!

    I really hope the CCAA will speed up the process so more babies can be united with loving families like yours.
