Rumor Queen has posted that one US agency and 2 European agencies, have received word that CCAA plans to suspend TA's and Referrals until the Swine Flu dies down....

GREAT!!! PERFECT!!!!!!!

I haven't heard anything from my agency yet, but I am sure (if this is true) we will hear something soon. Seeing that we would have been 3 or 4 months out from referral, it might not impact us much, unless CCAA doesn't play catch up and just pushes referrals back a month, heh, then I might implode.....


I understand CCAA's caution, the kids need to be safe....I don't know who I feel worse for, families who were execting to travel this month, recieve TA's or those families that would have gotten their referral this month.

"sigh"
I am NOT even gonna say, "what else could happen", because God has a quirky sense of humor...lol.

p.s F*** Y** Guru Joe, you don't know S*%&T!!!

P.P.S
I am not trying to make lite of the flu, I know people have lost their lives and it is no joke, soo, I just wanted to put that out there.....
Just ask Guru Joe, no really, ask him. That's what he said when I asked him if I would get my referral in July.

It's amazing what you will resort to, to hold onto your sanity.

:o)
No, it's not the latest fashion or diet craze.....but it brought a smile to my face.

So I am at the local flower nusery, I was buying one of those silk flower crosses to put at my mothers grave. I am standing at the cashing register and this older man, gets in line behind me. He places something on the counter, I look down, it's this sheer looking bag and you could definately tell there were bugs crawling around inside, ALOT of bugs....I am sure my eyes got really BIG and I managed to croak out, "WHAT are those???"
The guys smiled and said they were Ladybugs!!! He said he buys them because they eat the Aphids off his tomato plants...

Ladybugs in a bag, can't beat THAT kind of Ladybug sighting!! :o)
Well, the great and wise RQ has posted a rumor that CCAA has begun matching. This is a good sign, I like to hear that CCAA is hard at work, matching yummy babies to patiently(snort!)waiting families...
Also there is an early rumor of a cut off date of 3/14/06. Hmmph! Fool me once, shame on you, fool me 460 bazillion times, shame on me :o) I fall for it everytime, heh!

Oh and for those keeping count, today marks 37 months of waiting.....really? I mean REALLY!! lol...
So, you know the saying I have on my blog title?

"A dream will always triumph over reality once it is given a chance", a chinese proverb....


Well, my dh and I had chinese last night and there was a left over fortune cookie, the last of 3, which the other two I opened last night. I opened the last one tonight and guess what was the fortune inside....come on...guess.....

I kid you not! My eyes went big and I kinda had thought that someone was trying to tell me something....
I haven't posted in a while, well, since referrals last came out. I feel like I am in a holding pattern right now...circling the runway until we are told we can come in for a landing...I checked China Adoption Forecast for the umpteenth time, still says to expect a referral on 7-30-09. I would be excited, because that is just three months away, however, it keeps getting pushed back, due to the small amount of LID's being referral, I am in referral hell, lol.

On a personal note, my sister in Illinois "might" have breast cancer. She has to have some scans done, so they won't know for sure, for a week or so I guess ....I can't think about that right now..it's just too much, we don't have the greatest relationship at the moment, but she is still my sister...sucks big time.

I've been missing my mom a whole lot, last week I was a mess, I am better this week..There are times when I still expect her to be here, it's a bitter pill to swallow knowing she is not, but I guess it's just a part of grieving, acceptance......

I wish I had some happy or uplifting things to post, but I just don't have it right now. I am not looking for pity or anything and I hate to be whiny or griping about the hand that life has dealt my family recently, just needed a place to put some words down, it helps sometimes.....

If you'll allow for a little melancholy...The song track posted above is dedicated to my mom....miss you...love you....until we meet again....
I am pretty disappointed that CCAA only got to March 8th. Although there is one person saying that they have a LID of March 9th, who said they got the call..but that could have been a fluke. Our agency hasn't sent out the usual Stork Alert, so I wonder if there is anything to this

It seems like this is going to take forever. DH said if CCAA only does 2 days from here on out, then we would get our referral in December. This really stinks...

To put a positive spin on it, CCAA DID get thru the 7th, a big day and babies have found forever families to love them... so I guess it really is a matter of perspective.
