Thursday Morning Update

Wooeee...my ears are still ringing from the (very friendly and joking) reprimands I got yesterday for not posting until the afternoon! Silly me forgot that it wasn't all about me and that many of you are also living every step of Hannah's referral right along with me! :o) I promise...it won't happen again...I hope!

This morning's news is that all is quiet. Yes, so quiet on the referral front that you could hear a pin drop! It appears the rumour that initial packages won't begin to arrive until tomorrow is proving to be true. Hoping those packages contain referrals and that the stork makes it's way to Canada tomorrow rather than Monday!!

I have another post brewing in my head so will put that up later today. Until then, praying often for Hannah and getting goose bumps thinking that somewhere in this world there is a file that holds her picture and mine, side by side....mother and daughter!!!

  3. I remember clearly the moment I saw a picture of Benjaminh, taken by our in-country rep while I waited for my invitation to travel, where he held a card showing his name and my name. Side by side.

    That day I cried the ugly cry.

    I'm off to the cottage tomorrow morning but luckily there is internet at the library on Saturday!

    Thinking of you and your sweet Hannah my friend.

  7. Yes Catherine, you should know it is about us (lol)! I also laughed about this last month when we got our surprise referral. From the moment I let anyone know it had come to the time I posted her picture and info I got so many calls and emails! It is such an emotional time that sometimes we forget everyone else is excited for us!!! So, here I sit, patiently waiting for Hannah to be delivered to her MAMA!!! This whole waiting thing is for the birds! Haven't we all been patient enough?!!! Come on stork, deliver Hannah!!

  8. A little over 6 years ago we received our daughter Grace's referral kind of as a surprise because the program had stopped due to SARS. I will never forget that day and how I felt for as long as I live...I've been thinking of you at this time. You have such a great attitude Catherine...can't wait to see her in your arms!

  13. Catherine, your blog and mine seem to have the same problem with Bloglines. Mine hasn't been updating there for months, and it seems yours hasn't either. So, I apologize for not stopping by sooner and joining in this much anticipated wait for your referral.

    I hope you get some wonderful news very, very soon!

    :-)

  18. I got my exam results today, and I am so hoping you will get your own little package tomorrow (I know you get the call first, but I can pretend), to make you happy too!

  21. I am pulling for ya!!! I really hope you hear by Friday about Hannah. This is soooo exciting!! It is funny that there is this beautiful baby in China that has no idea that is loved by so many people around the world and no one has seen her face.

    Love,

    Sharyn
