My blog description reads.....Will we lose our minds in the process? Only time will tell. I'm here to tell you folks that I'm indeed losing it. Yep, I have been holding it together fairly well up until now. What the heck is up with only sending out 9 days of referrals? If they continue at that rate it will take 3 freakin' years to receive our referral. When the wait doubled from a 6 month wait to a 12 month wait everyone freaked out. God, I'd give anything for it to be a 12 month wait! Then, it was said that it may take 18 months from LID to referral. Again, we all freaked out. NOW, at the rate they are going it looks like much longer. How many times are we going to have to update all of our paperwork? I can't even believe I'm saying this...............CCAA, 18 months is alright with me. If you could keep it to that timeframe, I promise to relax and enjoy the wait with my family. Honest (nothing crossed).

I am with you on the 18 months. I would never have thought that I would be hoping for 18 months. I just want a referral before I start collecting social security. Oh, wait, there isn't going to be any of that left....but you know what I mean.

I'm right there with you, sister. I vacillate between pissed, then resigned. Then start the emotions all over again.
Not to be a demanding American, but we're not getting any younger over here.....
I think our lives are being held hostage by politcal BS.

Lisa....I'm with you as well!

Last night I actually emailed our agency asking them questions about another country (where's my ashamed graphic). I'll probably be better in a day or two, but right now it sucks!

I just don't know if I can stand another 18-24 mths. This is crazy!!

I am so numb right now.
I went from being pissed to numb.
I'm sure the tears are next.
We had friends over last night that haven't been to our new house. When they saw Ava's room all the questions started again.
"how can you not know when? What has the U.S. done to piss China off?"
I don't know, I don't know is all I mumbled all night long.

I am so with you on this one. I am still trying to let the 9 days referred in August sink in. It was a long weekend. I was feeling pretty blue today but read today which made me feel a little better. I know some people feel that Brian Stuy is a nut case, but his latest post at least gives me a little hope.

I am with you. 12 months I can do, 18 months ok with me but 2-3 years is a little more than I can grasp right now.
