THE STORK HAS LANDED.......


I got up early to check if there was any news on RQ... NADA, so I went back to bed. What a difference a few more hours make in this wild ride of IA. People are getting calls!!!


Thankfully my agency directors should be back in town today. Unfortunately, they will not get the package for a few more days.....


  • DHL does not deliver to their area.

  • DHL will deliver to Las Vegas.

  • Someone in LV will put the referrals into a certified package and MAIL vis US Postal.

  • Once it is delivered, THEN I WILL GET THE CALL!!!

I am not expecting the call until MONDAY. I will try to relax and enjoy all the cute babies of others.


So my next post will be TATE!!!!

Kramer said...

Okay Lisa, it's Sunday night and I sure am hoping that you are feeling much better. While you have been laying in bed I hope you have been planning your MONDAY!!! It's not far off now. I know how amazing this moment is going to be and I sure can't wait to see the first glimpse of Tate. I will be at work tomorrow, so I will be freaking out between each surgery running for the computer to see if the referral has come yet. I couldn't be more happy for anyone as I am for you. You are going to be the best Mom (yes, Mom that is you!!!) BTW, thanks for sharing your most precious baby with me (sorry Mesa you know I love you too!)

Tracy said...

I will be going to your sight frequently on Monday for any late breaking... who care what the work policy is on going to blogs on the web! This is important stuff.

Turtle said...

Hang in there Lisa!

I live in Salt Lake also and had the misfortune of having the same agency you have. Luckily for us, we were able to hang on to the amazing Teri as facilitator through the end of our adoption (even though she had left the agency). We brought our beautiful daughter home in July of 2006. No matter how frustrating our experience was with the agency, I know that it was working with them that brought us to her. I can't wait to see your new baby! Best Wishes, Jackie :)

Diana said...

I am so happy for you and I hope MONDAY is your day!!!

Stephe said...

Catherine said...
