This week CCAA sent out 6 days worth of referrals (March 9-14, 2006) which means there are only 9...count 'em...NINE days of files to be covered before I'll see Hannah's face for the very first time!!! Can you believe it?!!
This keeps me on track for a July referral with travel in September. A friend from work will be travelling with my parents and I when we meet Hannah and I asked Norma how she felt about celebrating her birthday atop the Great Wall of China!! She thought that sounded just fine! (Sorry John, I might be borrowing your wife for one birthday...thanks for all your support in her coming with me to meet Hannah!)
Take a look at the jars! The glass beads are flying out of there now and there are not enough to even have them touching one another. Can I get a Woo Hoo???
It's hard to anticipate when the next batch of referrals will be received because of this month's delay due to the flu. We had heard rumour late in April that the referrals would reach the 14th so it is quite possible (but not definite) that what was received this week was early May's files and that CCAA is already well on their way to preparing the next batch. Regardless, I'm holding on to July and my tummy is flippy floppy with excitement!!
Hannah's referral pictures have been taken and are getting ready to head to Beijing. Heh...my pictures were taken almost 4 years ago. I'm guessing she'll wonder who this old gal is who is picking her up! ;o)
Hold on Hannah....Mommy will be there soon. Praying for you daily baby girl. I love you more than I can say!! Love, Mommy xoxo
