This afternoon, I checked a blog that I stalk daily and this is what I found. (Isn't she cute??? Don't you just love those cheeks???) I am a referral addict. I have eagerly awaited referrals every month since we applied to our agency. They are the only reason that I am still a member of the big group. I know there will be referral pictures posted there every month so I can get my fix. I get a little thrill every time I read a post that announces the new addition to or creation of a family. Plus it is so exciting to think that with each set of referrals that pass, we are one month closer to being on of those families introducing our newest member.
It also makes me feel better about waiting for our paperwork when I see others getting their biggest news. The USCIS will have our paperwork six weeks tomorrow. We talked to a woman last weekend who suggested that we call our senator to get his assistance, but we decided we should wait and follow our agencies recommendation. They don't get involved until it has been at least eight weeks.
