Fly Storky Storky!! Fly!!!! **Updated**

Initial rumours from Spanish RQ say that referrals are in the air!!! Oh baby...how fast can that stork fly??? Do I dare dream that today... TODAY could be Hannah day???

Slept very little last night and woke often thinking of and praying for my sweet baby girl! God is so good and today may be the day that He introduces her to me!! Wow!!!! So many questions will be answered and I can't wait!!!

I'll keep you posted as I learn more!

** Update: Tuesday, Aug 18 @ 6:30pm **
No news on the Hannah front today but that just means I'll have to wait another day. I can do that!! After all this time, 1 night is doable! We received a HUGE answer to prayer today in that they're moving Grandpa closer to home Thursday which is a blessing we are so very, very thankful. Thank you Lord for answering that prayer!!!

See you here again - same time, same blog tomorrow!! TOMORROW should be Hannah day!!!

Thank you for all your prayers, comments, emails and love today!! It's been a great day and we get to do it all over again tomorrow!! Wheee....the stroller coaster continues for a little longer!

  20. Geez, *I* can't stand the wait for you right now ... I can't even imagine how you are feeling. I really can't remember feeling this about any other waiting friend (I've never met). I think it's because you have been so very positive and uplifting during your wait. Sharing that positive with all around you. I simply cannot wait to hear you yell it to the world that you have your referral!

    Barely breathing,

    Kiy

  25. Oh Catherine, we are leaving this afternoon for 5 days of electronic free camping... I am desperate for news before we pack up to leave!

    If you don't hear from me, please know that I am not ignoring your momentous announcement! I will be thrilled every moment thinking that it is exactly the moment you found out about your sweet Hannah!

    Praying,
    Jules

  29. Ok, if you check your stats and notice some freako from California has had your web site up all day and keeps hitting refresh, well don't worry, it's just me. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  30. It is funny how I feel your anticipation. It was just like the day that I kept hitting the refresh button on the Fed Ex site to see where the package was.

    Hopefully today.

  32. This is so wonderful for you, Catherine and your obviously close family. May God treat you with kid (kid...get it??) gloves today!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh it's so close, so close now. Lucky you to have your referral so soon, we will probably get it next week, earliest, since our referral needs to be sent to translation first before we can have the Magic Phone Call.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Hitting refresh every hour....Pins and needles here my friend!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Catherine,

    I am a recent follower of your blog from M3 whose blog I got from a link somewhere else. But, I wanted to let you know I am rooting you on. I am a recent adoptive mom to two foster to adopt girls, in CA too, and we waited a long time to adopt and bring our girls home (they have been home a year and we just finalized their adoption). So, I wish you well and I know all too well your anticipation.

    May tomorrow be your day that you finally get the news of Hannah. Many people are rooting you on from afar. :-)

  47. Catherine, I have been lurking for a few years ... I can not wait until the call comes. Yes, it will be this week and can't wait to hear about your baby girl!!! You have been so patient! I have also enjoyed your sojurns to the twinados!!! Love is patient and kind.

    ReplyDelete
  48. You have the BEST attitude, Catherine! I cannot wait to check back in tomorrow!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I have checked your site all day. Tomorrow, Tomoorw, Tomrrow...I can't wait until tomorrow.

    Want to hear a funny story?

    I just came back from Disney with my daughter. On the flight there a man approached me and said hi and asked if I remembered him. He looked very familiar but I wasn't getting it fast enough.

    He was Fedex man that delivered my paperwork on LiLi...almost 5 years ago!!! He was soooooooo touched by helping be part of her "delivery" that he never forgot about her. He told me that he remember seeing how happy I was and went home and told his wife about the whole thing. Then he introduced me to his two adoptive children!!! Because of the day, he was moved to adopt. That was when I started to cry.

    I guess each year on that day, he thinks about her and says a little prayer...HOW SWEET!!!

    I would see him around the town every once in awhile in traffic but was never able to stop and say hi. Having him say hi at the airport was soooooooo sweet and touching.

    Just remember, you never know who is touched by your adoption!

    Love, Sharyn

  51. Thanks for the update . . . finally!!! And tomorrow I should be home all day - oh no, I'm not going to get anything done since I'll be hitting refresh so many times on your blog.

    One more sleep Catherine. Can you even believe it???

    Praying for peace for you and a good night's sleep.

  63. I lost count how many times I checked you blog yesterday, but this is the first of probably a million refreshes today.
    I have admired your grace and love of life during the wait. I am so excited for you!!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Catherine, you and me, chickadee, in the same boat about not getting anything done today!! Your blog has kept me going when I have felt so down with the wait. Maybe we will travel together since our LIDs are one day apart. I would love to get to finally meet you! Let's pray that today is the day!!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I have just started reading your blog and I am so nervous and excited for you! Cannot wait for you to share your precious babygirl with us as I have so many friends that have gone through this moment and its WONDERFUL!!! Lots of thoughts and prayers coming your way!!!
