New Referrals = Guess What?!!!

Pssst...wanna hear something really, really cool?!! CC*AA sent out 6 days of referrals and they matched up to and including February 23, 2006. Do you know what that means? It means the very next time the 23rd of a month is reached I WILL BE RECEIVING HANNAH'S REFERRAL!! Yes....the final month of LIDs countdown has begun! Wheeee!!!

There are now only 28 little glass beads in the jar on the left and most of them are in the jar on the right!! There is light at the end of the tunnel and it's slowly getting brighter. No need to shade my eyes or put on sunglasses just yet but at least I can see the light.

Based on an average of 5.8 LIDs covered per month I'm still tracking for a May referral with July travel. It may slow down a bit since there are a lot of people logged in in March but that's ok, Hannah is getting closer and that's all that matters!

Congrats to Ozimum who will be seeing her sweet baby's face next week and to wonderful PIPO who will see her baby girl's face (or, that adorable little 4yo Asian son who speaks Italian that she's been dreaming about) next for sure!! So happy to be celebrating with you friends!

6 days closer and so very thakful! Praising God for the way He continues to bring Hannah together and all that He is teaching me during this process.

  2. Thank you for putting your Positive Vibes out into the world. It's always so needed. I'm so happy that some friends will see their little one next week and others next month... It does seem to go faster once you have referral as Donna is busy doing everything to be ready for travel Jan 8th.. Your time is coming quicker now..Cannot wait!!! Linda
