I found this graphic on someone's blog, and it was just too cute (and too true,lol:)
Sorry it's already been over a week since I posted on here. Lots has been going on, mostly with work (and me adjusting to flipping back and forth between two shifts) Sleep seems to be something I'm always trying to fit into my schedule,ha ha, I'm hopeful I'll get used to this in time?
One of the things that Hasn't been going on,( as of this posting) is Kirby and Takaho's new baby has not yet made her appearance! She was due the 26th, tried to come a little bit early, and now seems to be dragging her feet. So, we are all waiting for That bit of news.
I've taken to calling her 'nameless second baby",ha ha, as they changed their minds about the name at the last minute, and now won't tell us what they've picked!
So, dear "NSB"....we're waiting for you!!!
Another baby the family is waiting on is the baby Tracy and Adam are in the process of adopting from China. Tracy thought they had good news at the beginning of the month, as far as when their referral was going to come through, and then she sent an email that said "the crappy rumors have started." And the rumors seem to be indicating that they won't get their referral till much later than they thought.
At the end of the email, she said "Thanks for riding the rollercoaster with us." and I was inspired to write a poem, to try and cheer she and Adam up. I sent it to them, and holy cow,lol, they posted it on their blog (if you want to see what type of poet I am:)
As far as trying to explain what they are going through? Adam sent a very informative email not too long ago, copied here:
- When it arrives, it gets assigned a LID.
- Next it gets translated from English
- Then it moves to the Review Room. If China has any questions/issues about us as a couple or our history, they'll pull our dossier and ask here.
- The last steps are Pending Referral and Referral
