Happy 2009!!!

"2009 will be the YEAR I will become a MOMMA!!!"

This I shrieked as I about passed out from the truth of this BOLD statement. There is shock and disbelief that this long wait for Tate just might come to an end within the next few months. (Breathe Lisa Breathe)

For the last few months I have had these two 3x4 cards posted on my fridge.


One card is the expiration dates for my fingerprints and I 171H. The other is a list of waiting mommas with their LIDs.





Notice everyone is crossed off!!!


Congrats to the last three.... Ozi-momma. Pipo, and Kelli who are lovingly gazing on the pictures of their sweet gals..... I am once again amazed how well the CC*AA has matched babies to families!



Picture of Mesa just because she is so sweet!

How sweet is this! And how sweet are you! You know, I was chatting with a friend yesterday... a friend who adopted from China in 2005 and whose family is complete... and I was sharing that the wait seems a tad easier for me at the moment BECAUSE a few of my "imaginary" friends received referrals recently or will soon do so. It's fun to follow the blogs. And it helps this time feel real once again.

This IS the year!!! I'm thinking you will FOR SURE make it in the batch after next! I'm a little scared that ours will be the one after that, with the 7th being so HUGE! I really hope they keep us together, but I'm also a firm believer that things happen for a reason. Whatever happens.....WE'RE SOOOOOOOOO CLOSE and I've been on cloud nine since the last batch of referrals arrived!!!!!!
