News Soon? *** Update

I have a friend logged in the same day as me who has been told by her agency that a package is enroute from China. They're not expecting anything except REFERRALS! It's scheduled to arrive tomorrow.

There is also a small rumor on another website that referrals will go through at least June 15th.

I'm trying to wait until at least 10am before I start calling my coordinator to fish for info. But it's been difficult watching the seconds tick by on the clock.

Could it be my turn? Could I be getting a call in the next few days?

On the agenda today.... charge the camcorder, figure out a place to set it up to record my call if I happen to be home alone and print out my list of questions since my brain will most certainly turn to mush as soon at the phone rings.

Oh my gawd.. my stomach is flip flopping. Deep breaths, Krista. Deep breaths. You can't answer the phone if you're passed out on the floor. LOL!

Although because my agency insists on translating everything BEFORE they call you I don't expect my call until a couple days after the rest of the internet starts getting their calls. So I still don't think I'll hear anything until next week.

But I think it's safe to say that after more than five years of waiting....I'm probably within a week of seeing Mia's face!!!

*******************************************************************************
At 10:01am I called my coordinator. She then called my facilitator who is still in China. Thankfully he answered, even with the 12 hour time difference. Glad I didn't wait until later to call for info!

He's expected back on Monday with the referrals!!

He'll be in the office on Tuesday. Then they'll translate everything. So I should expect my call next week! Probably Wednesday...maybe Thursday.
