6 Days of Referrals Sent....Only THREE Remain!!!

Wheee!!! As M3 would put it, I'm 'ohsoclose' to receiving Hannah's referral now!!! Today referrals were sent for families whose Log in Dates (LIDs) were March 15 - 20, 2006. What is my LID? MARCH 23rd!!! Yes, only THREE, count 'em 3 LID's left to be matched until I see my sweet baby girl's face!!! Hannah has had a name for 4 1/2 years now and soon she will have a Chinese name, birth date, place of birth, personality and precious, precious little face!!

Now, I need to be honest with you and let you know that I believe my referral will be delayed a month from what I have been anticipating and will now happen in August rather than July. Even though there are only 3 days left, they are all dates with large numbers of families logged in based on Rumor Queen polls which I base my guesstimations on. The poll I have been using since November 2008 has seen an average of 63 families placed in each referral batch. The number of families from this same poll that need to be matched for them to get to me is 108 families. A quick look at the math and it appears that July will not be my month but August.

Now, I could be wrong, CCAA could do a large batch and I would be thrilled to be served up a big ole serving of humble pie!

Regardless, I know that God is in control and He knows exactly when 'The Call' will come! Trusting Him and counting down the days until the next referral batches are sent out! Sleepness nights filled with the wonder of anticipation coming up is my guess.

Hannah, Mommy is waiting for you and I pray for you daily sweet baby girl. You are never far from my thoughts and always in my heart. I love you already!
Love you baby girl! Mommy xoxo


  1. YEA... 3 days.
    I am sooo ready to see pretty little Hannah's face..
    As for the month.. you just gave me goosebumps..
    There are ALOT of people on the 21 and 22.. I think you are right.. about the time.. If they do the 23.. that is a plus cause they have been doing around 100.. and that would put it over..
    Looks like you had sooo much fun with the twins and family.

  29. Oh my goodness, I have goosebumps. You are NEXT!

    I first found you through the Salsa blog a few years ago and I continually come back to check in on you. Being Canadian I feel a little closeness! :) Also, your positive attitude is amazing and love for God too. You are already a fabulous mommy - Hannah is most certainly blessed!

    SO VERY excited for you!
