Yesterday was our 27th month of waiting for our referral. Ok, so we think we are about 10 months away from referral. A mere drop in the bucket of time, compared to how long we have waited so far, hah! So that means, we could be in China,by this time next year. Ummm, why after waiting this long, do I feel so unprepared for that, lol.
That January 22 '06 is the cut off for this month. 10 days of referrals, well that's not to shabby, but I do not think that it is going to be an ongoing trend. We've seen it before, where CCAA does an increased number of days on month, only to fall back to 3-5 days the next month. Hey, they are closer to our LID date and that is 10 log in dates closer to our Mia!

I have a couple of pictures of the paint color we chose for Mia's room. One is at night, one is during the day. Even though the color is a light Lavender, it doesn't look pink does it? Well anyway, it looks so much prettier in person, I can't wait to start putting it all together. That big hulking think covered with the sheet is the crib. We put it up over two years ago, when we found out what our log in date was, when we "thought" we would be receiving our referral in about 7 to 9 months, hahahaha!





For two of the walls I was thinking of putting these removable wall decals, but I don't want it to look too busy. I have some flower stencils that I bought too.


Ugh!! Why is it so hard for me to make a decision!
'06 of course...

That's the rumor about how far CCAA has matched families logged in on with babies. Last month, CCAA got to January 12th, so IF this rumor is true, CCAA will have done 10 days worth of referrals. Terrible? No...Fantastic?...I'll take what I can get. We'll see what Monday brings...That's when referrals are expected to arrive.

We've started painting the nursery. I absolutely LOVE the color, it's a soft shade of Lavender. I am have trouble on getting ideas for decorating. I have no clue on what to do..I am afraid whatever I attempt to do, will look like crap, lol.
