sending our love

With reluctance, I've revised the tickers at the top of this web page, to reflect a more accurate guestimate of when we're to expect a referral for our daughter and our travel dates to go get her. CCAA (The government agency in China that matches families) is moving their building this month, to a bigger building, and they've begun to slow down the rate at which they give referrals. The families waiting for referrals in October still have not received them, and it's now into November, although they are expecting them any day now. Our agency told us today that they expect only half the waiting families for a referral in October will get one this week. We were also told by our agency today to expect our referral to come to us in early December, not mid November, as we had anticipated. I think the hardest part of this wait is knowing that there's a little girl in China, who, although she doesn't know it yet, has parents in California that are anxiously awaiting to hear about her, and know her. We can only pray that she's warm and is feeling loved.

Hang in there Karen - this waiting stinks (don't I know it!) But it will be your turn soon and we'll both be snoopy dancing....
