Well I've tried to not think about it...

but now I'm starting to get sad about it all.
A few good reasons why today would be a great day for a stork arrival.
*I have make up on.
*My laundry is done.
*I have absolutely nothing else planned for today or tomorrow for that matter.
*The floors are clean.
*I am out of chocolate.
*I even straightened my hair with the pricey product. ;0)
*The last words out of G's mouth before going to school was directions for me to stay home and wait for the call.
These past 2 days have been torturous. My girl is alive and every day I sit here in waiting, she sits in an orphanage without a family. I am slowly losing my mind, however, I'm thrilled beyond measure to hear that the 8th might be included as well! Please tell me I won't have to go through another weekend without any news. Somebody tell me how long it takes for the calls to begin after the stork takes flight. Seriously, I'm losing my mind.

Today would have been an awesome day to receive your referral; we would have had something really cool in common.
I'm right here waiting with you...

Hi Tracey,

I am so over the moon for you, that when I got home from school today, I logged onto your site first to see if there was news of your precious baby! Hang in there, just a few more days :) Have fun with Colleen this weekend---

It's Tuesday....I don't see why they wouldn't be arriving before the weekend. Don't they usually overnight them?? I think if they sign them tonight....We should see them by Thursday or Friday at the latest!

Daniella said...

I'm now also stalking my agency site - still has the matching update. Hang on - your so close - I know who the heck am I to say, I have no idea - I'll surely be loosing my mind if I was this close and now with our new path I can jump every time the phone rings. I wish I could bring you chocoloate :(

Special K said...

I'm not gonna tell you to hang in there cuz I know it won't help. Hopefully, you'll hear something tomorrow but if not ....Colleen will be a nice distraction for you. Just survive tomorrow and Thursday things will be a little better. A fun girlfriend and a cocktail has to make things better, right? :)

Joanne said...

I am soooooo anxious for you and I keep checking in...no pressure :) I wish I could help with the call question, but I'm sure it's quick?! I'm keeping everything crossed!!!

Dawn said...

AAAGGGHHH...I can only imagine how you're feeling...praying it arrives VERY soon!!!

give Col a hug for me:)

I wish I could be there to see you and J become parents again!

Can't wait to see your ugly cry with makeup, clean clothes and clean floors!

I think every agency handles all of this differently. Our agency gives us a call when they arrive, but then we have to wait 2 - 3 days until the english translations arrive before we can have a picture. Since we live in the same city as our agency, we will get to go there and get all of our information. They do not work on the weekends so if things are not here by tomorrow, I don't see us seeing anything until after the weekend. At least we will know a name and where she is from. I hope your agency give you some information, this waiting is driving me NUTS!!!!

Laurie said...

Hang on girl. She's almost here!

Joy said...

Just saw a post on RQ that said an agency said that their referrals have arrived!!!! I hope that's truth! You will see her face soon. I so happy for you and your sweet family.

PIPO said...

Gotta be by the end of the week and I am still holding out some hope for tomorrow.

Oh, girl. If you think this part is bad I feel for you once you have seen that picture and wait for TA. That's enough to make you really lose that last marble.

I think it will be tomorrow...I remember doing my hair and thinking that I would always remember what I was wearing when I saw my daughter....and dont forget you can always call them;) LOL!

I love what you lil guy said to you before school!!!!

Colleen said...

OK what Mare said was funny.

Girlfriend...I wish I had the right words. There's none. Just drink. I'll be there soon to join you.

She is going to be worth every second of insanity. Swear.

Steffie B. said...

hang on for the best journey of your life......I can't wait to see you bring her home! ;)

I wish there were words I could say to calm your nerves but there aren't.

I know how crazy it can drive you. BTDT while we waited to see if our agency was ever going to find our daughter. Then last week we got the call for a beautiful nearly 14 month old little girl with CL/CP. I so wasn't expecting it and almost crumpled to the floor when I was told they had locked her file. There was definite uncontrollable sobbing. Now I'm climbing the walls waiting for PA and then after that a SCL. And then after that TA.

She will be here soon. Until then have a few beers and enjoy life as it currently is because it's going to change FAST!!

I feel like this has been the longest month of waiting....it has to be ANY day now....but tomorrow sure would be nice:)

Hang in there....maybe if you don't do your hair and makeup, you will get the call?

Thinking of you this morning in the hopes that perhaps the stork began his flight last night!! I'll be checking in all day today as I'm home with a sick girl.

Rhonda said...

Fly stork...FLY!

My stomach is in tight knots for you here in Ohio!! I keep refreshing your page!

Lisa and Tate said...

Today would be a great day for a referral!!! Not dressed or fixed up like you, but I do have chocolate! Bring it on!
