It's Friday!

I'm definitely expecting a Friday update today, so stay tuned for an update this afternoon.

We've reached the point in the wait where it is possible that we're going to be skipped and #3 could get the next referral, so I'm trying to be prepared for that. There could be two, or even three referrals this week that aren't ours, so I'm trying to remind myself of that so I don't get too dissapointed.

In Korea there are generally more boys available for adoption than girls. So it's not uncommon for a few families waiting for girls to pile up at the top of the waiting list and get skipped over because the referrals coming in are for boys. So even though we're #2 now, if #1 is also waiting for a girl and a referral comes in for a boy, we're both going to get skipped for whoever is waiting for a boy in line behind us.

Hopefully that's not going to happen, but I kind of have a feeling that it will, so I'm mentally preparing for it. So today if there are referrals I'm going to check with our contact at the agency before I get too excited about moving up to #1 on the list. It's possible that there will be referrals today and we'll still be number two. I'll keep you posted with whatever info I get as soon as I get it.

Today I'm working on some big projects that needed to be done, so that's keeping me busy while I wait for the update. I'll keep you posted as soon as I know something!
