How many months?

How many months on The List?

Go to fullsize image       

There was a flurry of activity the week before we got on The List, and since then....not so much.  As child preferences fluctuate constantly in adoption, The List is an ever-changing document.  Therefore, until we are in the 20-or-so range, we really won't have hard and fast numbers about where we are at.  However, from what I can tell, there has been a grand total of one referral in those two months for a child in our range. 

I don't really know what to think about that.  (Shuddering sigh).

On a different note:  Blogger has been having comment issues (or at least, I'm having trouble leaving them on certain blogs--and I think all comments have to be anonymous) so for all of you in the south--take care and we are thinking of you.  I would take 10 months of gloom and rain over the threat of even one tornado.  Seriously.  Hang in there.


  1. All right! Two months is awesome! Our agency is having slow referrals too. It's so frustrating. Time will tell.

  2. Oh, this waiting time is SO HARD. Especially if the numbers aren't really moving. :(

    (By the way - don't worry, I had figured out that Amy was your sister! Otherwise yeah, I would have been thinking ooooooooh, COINCIDENCE!)

  3. Two months is amazing, and hard all the same. Thinking of you a lot.

  4. Happy Two Month wait! It's good to tick off another month...hoping you are pleasantly surprised that it is shorter than you imagine :)
