2 months down

2 months down! I am so thrilled that Imagine is already into their Feb08 referrals. I have been religiously keeping my referral tracker up-to-date - in just over one month there have been 13 referrals come through. It looks like the the wait is averaging about 6-6.5 months; but I am praying for an early Christmas present...please send positive vibs our way that the referrals keep on coming at this pace! I told Chad the other day that when the first Jun08 referral comes through I will be practically useless until ours comes.

Adoption article in the Wpg Free Press

This article was published in the Winnipeg Free Press on Sunday. It is really powerful.

Let me know what you think...

I found this poem online the other day and thought it was so perfect. I wish I could take credit for - my only contribution is sharing it.
I stepped into her room today
Knowing she’s not there
This waiting for referral
Is more than one can bear

But taking in the moment
I sit down on the floor
And dream of her here with me
When waiting is no more.

A little giggle fills the air
As I rub her feet
I place my hand upon her heart
To feel its every beat.

A song is sung so very soft
Her eyes begin to close
She’s meeting me in dream land
A place where love still grows.

My vision now is very blurred
The tears stream down my cheeks
I’ve dreamed of her quite often
Throughout these past few weeks.

Suddenly a sound is heard
The phone rings in the hall
Waking up I quickly pray
Please let it be “The Call”.

We're back!

Well, almost two weeks with limited access to emails and the internet and I survived - it was touch, but I made it through. We had an amazing holiday, with one week in Grand Beach, MB with friends and one week in Cypress Hills, SK with family. I can't believe we are back to work and our next holidays are not until December - that seems like a really long time away :(
