THE NUMBER 5

Today's post is brought to you by the number five! Today marks our 5 month anniversary that our precious dossier was logged in to China! The current wait time from LID (log-in-date) until you receive your referral (your childs picture & information) is about 13 months. As many of us are aware this timeframe can either slow down or begin to speed back up. I personally have not witnessed it speed back up but apparently it has in the past. Basically what I'm trying to get at is.............WE HAVE NO FREAKIN' CLUE WHEN WE WILL GET OUR REFERRAL! When we started the adoption process in August, 2005 the current wait time was 6 months from LID to referral. Ahh, those were the days! The good news is we are one month closer to bringing our Ava home where she belongs.

Happy 5 months to us, my friend!!! I'm really feeling like this time will go by faster, the first few months were hard - it has to get better!

Yeah! 5 months down, don't think about how much longer (at least for today!) My sister saw where you found the #8 is lucky in China. She had a weird dream about my Mom and both sisters going to get me a baby on the black market and getting twin china dolls. She thinks Emma was born today! She posted her dream on my site under the #11 post. Enough about me! I really just wanted to send congrats your way and yes we have to get a trip together!

Congratulations on 5 months! Celebrate EVERY milestone, that's my motto. So what'll it be? Margarita? Chocolate? Massage? It's all good celebratory fun. :-)

GIMME 5! Once school starts, it's a quick slide into Christmas and then our referrals soon after. Just the way it's gotta be! =) (I'm in on the t-shirts!)
