I went to my very first Zumba class last night. I had a great time but man I'm no where near the expert as these ladies. I do suggest to wear pants that aren't loose as kept stepping on mine. Not to mention the butt show I gave to the girl behind

I seen this on my friend Nicole's Facebook and had to post it here. I think this is my new Theme song now! LOL

Let the referrals keep coming in!

Jan 14, 2010

Our #'s came in today!

I finally got an email today on where we are in the list of families waiting for a referral. As we are on two list we received to #'s to where we are on these list.

Single child under the age of 1 of either sex is #132

Siblings, twins of either sex are 0-3 years is # 43

I'm not sure what one will come up first as we have no way of knowing how many referrals will be coming each month. The agency is working on half the staff as they did before so let;s hope that the referral rate is going to be more then 5 a month. If that's the case you can see that we will be waiting a long time for our child/children.

I must keep positive and look froward to the coming referrals...only make my number go up from here on out!

Congratulations to everyone! Let the Referrals keep coming!!!!!

***** UPDATE *****
For those who are not in the adoption world....a "Referral" is a match to a child. When you are adopting you put forward a request of what sex, age and health issues that you are requesting for your future children. As we have requested a single child either sex under the age of 1yrs at the time of referral. We've also requested siblings or twins 0-3 years of time of referral.

It's finally 2010 and I'm still sad....

I wanted to start this year off right and keep positive....but I broke my own New Year resolution already. As I looking through everyone’s Christmas photos all I see are happy faces...happy faces of families. I wonder if this will ever happen for me. I want to be posting my pictures of our family opening up gifts by the tree. Each holiday is getting harder and harder as the months pass by. I know this time next year I'll still be wishing the same dream as of today....a family of our own.

I'm scared that we will find out this month that our wait will be years away instead of months. It scares me to think that I will have many more days like this one ahead of me. I wonder how I will find the strength to get through it...again.
