FLASHBACK PHOTO - the day we sent in our application to adopt. Oct. 2, 2009 :) (and wow, Anderson looks little!)
The wait till referral for me has its ups and downs. One minute I am completely giddy about the fact that the phone will ring in the fall (hopefully) telling us we have a daughter. In another minute I will be in a panic thinking about leaving Anderson and Jack for a whole week. It is a crazy roller coaster ride of emotions. But watching all my bloggy friends get their referrals, travel calls (GO Kelly!) and pick up their babies (yea Elizabeth!), makes me ridiculously excited for when our time comes.
I try to go about my day with the boys normally,and truth be told they keep me on my toes and super busy, but when nap time or bedtime comes, all I think about is Leah. I wonder how old she is, who is taking care of her, what she looks like, how her birthmother is coping, when we will get our referral, when we will travel, etc. etc. The questions go on and on in my head.
So those that have already gotten referrals, how did you cope with the waiting? And those of you in my boat, how are you doing?
I have to say this is easier so far than the wait for our 1-600A approval. That about put me over the edge. I guess that wait was 11 weeks total but for some reason I just wanted the paperwork in Korea so bad it made me nuts. Now at least I know our dossier is THERE and any day someone could match us to our daughter. :)
