546 Days

According to the counter on my blog, it's been 546 days since we officially began our wait for Clarissa. The wait has actually been longer than that because the paperwork process took months before everything went to Korea, but we've been on the waiting list for 546 days.

So the question of the day is how many more days will it be?? I've decided to have a contest. Everyone post your guess and I'll come up with a prize for whoever gets the closest without going over. What will the counter say on the day we get our referral? I'm hoping for 546! There's still a few hours of the afternoon left for the agency to call!

But it's probably not going to happen today, so we'll make our guesses. I'm going to guess 566 and hope that I'm totally wrong and that it's sooner than that. Day 566 would be on June 9th. That's just a random day I picked, it means nothing special.

So give me your guess. What number will the counter say on referral day? I would assume that it's going to happen sometime in the next 30 days or so, but there's no way to say for sure.

Post your guess and maybe you'll win a prize!


edited to add: If you look on the lefthand side of the page you will notice that there is now a link to the official list of guesses. There are a few people who have chosen the same day. I'm not really sure what to do about that, so I'm just going to leave it. I'll let two people share the same day, but no more than that. If you choose a day that two people have already chosen, you'll need to pick a new day. If you see that you've chosen the same day as someone else and don't want to share your day, e-mail me with a new guess and I'll change it. The first person listed is the first person that chose that day. There are still lots of days left to choose! Post a comment on this post if you want to add your guess!

5-because that is how many people will be in your family

6 - because it's my lucky number

4 - because you have been waiting for-ever

Oh so cheesy, lol

Kamilla said...

wait, do they even do them on the weekend? If they don't I am switching to 565...

Wenders11 said...

Kamilla, I absolutely love your formula! They don't usually do them on weekends though, so I switched you to 565.

Although I guess weekends aren't totally unheard of. I know of one person who got her referral on a Saturday. Apparently their agency got several referrals at once and got behind so they came in on a Saturday to catch up and call the families. So I guess it technically CAN happen, it just usually doesn't.

Kim said...

577. June 20th, my second wedding anniversary. = )

Kaylene said...

562. :) But tonight would be good!

m0mma_ria said...

My girls and I (7, 5 and 3) have been following your blog for a while, and they ask everyday if your baby is coming "home to her family yet".
