I think that I made a big mistake. I got a little to cocky about this whole wait thing. I got overly confident thinking that we would probably get a referral in February at the latest, hopefully in January. Well, silly me. CCAA only did 5 days of referrals this month and two of those days were a weekend so they don't really count. It is supposedly one of the smallest batches since the slow down started. Who knows what they are going to do next. I am really sick of this crap. I have no problem with waiting if they would just share some f---ing information with us. I have a six (seven tomorrow) year old that wants a sister. I have a mother who wants another grandchild. I have siblings that want another niece. And I would someday like to be able to say "The cute one over there is my daughter." Heck, I would like to be able to tell people that we are adopting without having to update them for two years on how our adoption is going (actually not going anywhere). I have been silly enough to tell students that I will probably be out for awhile next semester because I will be on "maternity" leave. Maybe that's what did it. I think I have cursed all of us by being hopeful and actually making plans. I guess I need to go back to not having expectations and keeping my mouth shut.
