No Luck This Month

Thanks for the prayers and finger crossing, but we didn't get into the match group this month. I made the mistake of getting my hopes up and now it's hitting me hard! So now it's back to planning on a long wait again. That'll at least keep me sane.

Jeff and I sat down and looked at past match dates and did the math. If all things stay the same and the referral/match patterns and dates stay the same, we probably won't get our referral until May, which means we probably won't travel until July or August.

So the blog may not get updated for a while, since there probably won't be much to report. Check in after Easter and we'll probably have a better idea.

Well, I think I jinxed us by assuming we'd be next to get our referral. Our social worker's pretty sure that our baby won't be in the next match group. Maybe in April. We should be hearing something soon either way - "Here's your new baby...come and get her!" or "Maybe you'll hear something next month." GRRRR!
For those of you who don't know what a "referral" is, it's the actual file of the child, with any and all pertinant information about him or her. Right now, we don't have anything: No photo, no referral, no travel plans. Just a lot of hope and frustration. Any and all finger crossing, praying, hopeful thinking is greatly appreciated!!
