OMG....We Are Getting So Close!

There was one more referral today, a little 5 1/2 month old girl. Her mommy and daddy waited just days shy of 10 months to see her face. It's so amazing to be at this part of our journey. Seeing people that submitted their paperwork about the same time we did and following each others journey to a day like this is just so cool!
We are just a few couples away! Really! I do have to say that it feels so surreal. I know that we will get the call, because statistics show that 10 out of 10 times, when your up....your up. It's just that we've waited so long that it doesn't seem real. Chances are that our daughter has already been born. She's out there! She could be spending some precious time with her mommy right now. She could have already been taken to an orphanage. Or....being really optimistic, she could already be in our agencies care! We are so close, I know I have said this so many times, it's like crying wolf, but we really are so close.
If we got the call really soon, like in the next two weeks, there is a chance that we would be traveling in June. I'm really hoping for this! We are just days or weeks from seeing our daughters face and months from bringing her home! By the way, Miles told me yesterday that we need to call her Marley Bob.

Yes, you are getting sooo close!! So good to talk to you today. I can't tell you how much it helps. It is so hard to think about where our little ones might be now. I'm pretty sure that they will be together soon if they aren't already. Hopefully, they can comfort each other along the way in the same way.

Hoping we're celebrating soon!
