Today marks our five month waiting day! To be honest, it hasn't been that bad. Well, I suppose if you look to our past posts, you might think differently. But overall, I'm feeling pretty calm and collected about it.
We had almost 3 weeks of no referrals at our agency and I was getting a bit antsy, but so far this week there have been Eight referrals, yes I said EIGHT! Here's the breakdown of the eight: Boys, 7 weeks, 2 months, 10 months, 2 months, 5 1/2 months. Girls, 2 years, 19 months, 2 months.
Where are we? I still don't have a definite number, but it's around 14 according to my calculations, which are never really right...lol! One of my blog friends is #9 for sure, for girls under 12 months and #4 for girls over 12 months and we are just a few families behind her....so YAY for us!!!!!! Optimistically, I am hoping for some more referrals by Friday because our agency will be closed for two weeks over Christmas. I know, I can't be that greedy, eight referrals in one week are AWESOME!
Shout out to my dear friend Audrey! Yesterday, I talked to my dad. He will be in a rehab/nursing home for 80 days and they will care for him until my mother heals from her broken ankle. It really breaks my heart everytime I talk to him. But anyways, I asked him what he needed, since my mother can not drive and relies on friends to take her places. He, very humbly asked for a few things and to avoid the Christmas mail chaos, I called someone I knew would help me get this stuff to my dad. I can't wait to hear about his reaction! Audrey, you are so amazing and I really love you for doing this for me! My dad is all alone right now and you bringing him this stuff is such a blessing to us! Thanks again!
