I hate when this happens, I try not to let it take over my day but sometimes it is harder to stop then others. Its not jealousy or envy that starts these party's but a longing, a want, a desire if you like. It usually hit hard on Mothers Day or after going to a baby shower. It doesn't last long ( I refuse to let it) I have a bit of a cry, maybe a drink (or two) and then move on.
Yesterdays party came unexpectedly, our neighbors across the road had a healthy baby boy on Saturday morning(their third child). When Andrew & I came home from Upstate @ 11pm on Sunday, we saw the balloons and the stork out on their front lawn. As the Hubs was emptying the truck out, our neighbor came home and Andrew & I went to Congratulate him. As they came home yesterday and the family was gathering around the stork to take pictures and mark this special occasion, that's when it hit me. That want, longing and desire. Before the feelings got to strong I jumped on the computer to cruz some of my favorite blogs.It does help to read about others who are going thru this struggle called adoption and the photos of the children who have come home already always put a smile on my face.Then just as the feeling was starting to leave I came across this
site and this little tidbit ..............
Our prediction for LID 2007-04-26
China has 472 days of dossiers to be processed before they get to your dossier. China currently processes about 5-7 days of dossiers each month.

If China did all future referrals at the exact same speed as they did this month: 2016-10-10

Our best guess - a weighted average of recent CCAA velocities, guessing that CCAA will perform about as well in the future as they are performing now, but might return to previous trends: 2012-07-15

That's our best guess for when you might receive your referral. Just at a guess, we can suppose that the CCAA either speeds up or slows down significantly, and show you those dates. If they speed up: 2010-05-31. And if they slow down: 2016-11-15.

Since China generally sends out referrals in a batch about once per month, your referral date could easily vary +/- one month depending on whether you just get included or just get missed in a particular batch.

OK now this is when the party really got going... I headed straight for the freezer and some Chocolate Ice Cream (thank god it was weight watchers and only 2 points)
Do I believe what I read? NO not at all but it was a bucket of cold water in my face.I've said it before and I believe it, When the time is right and the stars are aligned, the right child will be placed into my arms forever. - Custom comment codes for MySpace, Hi5, Friendster and more

On a better note, I have the day off tomorrow (YAY!!) and are spending it in Manhattan with two of my favorite munchkins. We got tickets to go see Chicago. I can't wait.

As always Be Good & Be Safe

This is an account of our lifes as we head down the path of life towards our first child. An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place, or circumstance. The thread may stretch or tangle, but will never break." --An ancient Chinese belief
