5 Months Down...

As of November 14th, my dossier has been logged in for 5 months! I know quite a few of you will disagree but for me these last 5 months have flown by. I still have so much to do to prepare for Mia's arrival. Right now the wait is between 14 to 15 months. I hope it stabilizes there. I don't even want to think about the possibility of not traveling until 2008. So I keep praying my sweet little prayer which is to have her home before Christmas next year. Please CCAA... don't make us wait any longer.

Happy 5 down my chick-a-dee. Hope it keeps going fast for ya!

I found that the month before I "expected" my referral really flew by! When you're not actively anticipating something, it doesn't make time drag. Unfortunately, the moment I felt "due", the minutes slowed down and felt like days!

I hope the next months fly by and you get surprised with a speed-up of things at CCAA!

Double Happiness!

I hope it stabilizes, too! I could totally handle another 10-11 month wait for referral. That's doable.

Anything more just sucks!

Happy #5!

Congrats!! I know how you feel, these months are flying past!! If referral were still at 8-9 months I would be in a panic! But I guess that is how we prepare ourselves for the wait! Here's to 14 mos stabilizing!!

Of course, HUGE congrats Krista! That is a milestone really, because that is quite a bit of time! I hope that the time has gone by quickly for you! And, I hope that the wait doesn't continue to grow, I believe it will stabilize!

Sometimes the months fly and some seem to drag. I wish you wings so that they continue to fly by.

5 is better than 4
6 will be better than 5, and so on.

I know the wait is just plain weird. I'm not sure I experienced anything like it in my life.

When people said this to me I thought, Yeah right- but I can tell you once you are matched, you wouldn't want any other child. It's amazing.

Here's to a great 5 month anniversary. May the wait move smoothly and quickly and that travel isn't far behind.

you don't know if yet, but you're going to LOVE HER!!

I'm right behind you. Just think if things do stablize we may be in China next year at this time.

Five is a good number! Horray for you, my friend. :)
