LID Anniversary

Today marked the one-year anniversary since my log-in date (LID). I went out for Chinese food to celebrate and received a great fortune cookie. My fortune read " Something special is coming your way".

There are 48 days of referrals to get to my LID. If the CCAA can average 24 days per month for the next two months (or some combination that totals 48) then I will receive my referral in November. To get a December referral, the CCAA only needs to average 16 days per month. Things are finally starting to get interesting.

Twins for Kim & Scott

My local adoption friends, Kim and Scott, just received their referral for the most adorable twin girls, Jayden and Jenna!! They turn one next week and hopefully they'll be home for Thanksgiving. I'm so thrilled for them. Congratulations!!

Referrals are in...

Referrals have been posted. This batch covers July 23 through August 9, 18 days total. Not bad. I was hoping for this group to cover August 15 but this can still work. The CCAA would need to cover 24 days in the Oct and Nov referral groups for me to get a Nov referral. I think they can do it but a Dec referral is still definitely a possibility.

Pre-referral pick-me-up

My new toy. A pink nano. Just in case the next batch of referrals is as small or smaller than last month, I figure there is no time like the present to buy myself a referrals-have-to-speed-up-so-cheer-up gift. :D

Secret Pal Revealed...

My fabulous secret pal has revealed herself- Bobbi- soon to be mom of Madison Mei!! You have been a wonderful pal and I want to thank you for all the fun, thoughful gifts you've given Ava over the past 6 months. This month is no exception.

The demin dress is so sweet. I can't wait to see Ava wear it. The farm house sings a toon and has pull out animal pages in the front of the book. I'm sure she'll adore this. But, the best gift of all is the stunning silver/crystal bracelet with Ava's name on it. Did I mention that Bobbi made this bracelet- too cute. I've been looking around for a bracelet to bring to China for Ava and this will be perfect. I LOVE IT!!

Bobbi, with your 8/11 LID, I'm praying that you receive your referral next week. Can't wait to see photos of Madison. I'll be checking your site and following your journey. With Love, Michele and Ava
