Is it true???


I thought this picture was appropriate today. This is my Mom and I. Not sure how old I am (Mom?) but man I have a big head :) Anyhoo. I am hanging in there. RQ has now moved the rating for a December 8th cutoff to a R4. Apart from an upset stomach since last night (nerves) and occasional chest tightness, I am surprisingly calm. My Mom on the other hand is a wreck. (Deep breaths Mom) I am really praying that this is all true but won't really believe it until I finally have Abby's face in my hands. I emailed my agency and told them that I had heard the cutoff was the 8th and that referrals were starting to arrive. I asked them what to expect. My coordinator replied by telling me that they have not received any referrals yet and that when they did they would go through the info and then notify the families...... No "Hang in there." No "We think your in." and no confirmation from them so that is why I am still cautious. I won't be traveling anywhere today just staying close to my phone and my computer. I want to say again though, A Big Thank You for all of your comments, emails and posts and comments that I am seeing on your blogs! You have made me smile many times :) Now I will go back to surfing for rumors. You will know when I do :)

Let's see, you have on a little smocked dress that I made and I think I remember the size as being 3 to six mos so I would think you were closer to six mos. What do you mean your head was big! You were adorable. xo Mom

I am glad your so calm, I am an absolute mess. I feel so sick I think I am going throw-up. Blech. :-) I was hoping beyond hope that we would get our referrals this week, but it looks like it will be next week. I can't wait to see your baby, and mine, too!!!!!

I'll bet these last few hours of the wait are excrutiating! No wonder your mom is freaking out!

Sending good wishes for some sort of confirmation of the cutoff date very, very soon.

I sure hope you hear something tomorrow. It will be a very long weekend otherwise.

Fingers crossed.

Kristie said...

AHHHH!! This is frustrating for me...I do not know how you are getting throught this without throwing things=) It's funny. I was looking at John's monthly USNA Alum magazine today and his classmate posted a picture of his adopted chineese daughter and commented that he and his wife are waiting on another. When I saw it I thought "it's a sign". I think Abby is here! PLEASE let us know xox's The Campbell's
