I have two very exiting pieces of information to share today.
First of all, I spent all day on an airplane and I didn't die. YAY! :) We have made it safely to Memphis and the half hour that we've been here has been all sorts of fun so far. :)
The second bit of news is super exciting! When I got off the plane in Memphis I checked my e-mail on my Blackberry and I got the much awaited Friday update from the adoption agency. Are you ready?!??
THREE REFERRALS THIS WEEK!!!!!! THREE!! We never had to have our six party, we skipped all the way to four!
So this is very exciting information for me because it means that we might be really close to getting our referral now. We don't necesarily have to make it to #1 before we get matched. They try to look at all the families who are at the top of the waiting list and then they try to match the baby with the family they feel that is the best match. So while it may not be likely, it IS possible to get a referral when you're in fourth place, and it's even more likely to get one in second or third place. I don't know when it's going to happen, but suddenly I don't feel like we have months left to wait. If we get really lucky we could have one next month some time!!
Anyway, that was such exciting news that I rented a computer at Kinkos just to share it. Let's hope that the things continue to move along quickly!
Now I'm off to crash in the hotel room and be really glad that I'm no longer on an airplane. Ahhh....
