Well, we are getting closer. CCAA have matched families thru December 8th, 2005. Keep in mind our LID date is Jan. 11th, 2006. So we are getting closer. We spoke with our adoption agency last week and they are still hoping we will get a Feb. referral. We are not keeping our hopes up. Right now, CCAA is doing about 1 week a month which would put us with a April or May 2008 match. However, our agency says December has a lot less families waiting so they may get through it faster. Say prayers for us that it comes sooner than later. Two years ago, November 8th was when my dad had passed away. When he was sick in the hospital, he couldn't really talk but wrote down on a piece of paper.."your baby?" He had a brain tumor so this was a big deal for him to remember this. I had to explain to him that he really hadn't been "out of it" for longer than a few days and we have not got our baby yet but soon. Little did we know we would still be waiting 2 years later. My heart aches to hear my dad's voice and to have him be here when we bring our daughter or son home but I know he will with us on our journey. I have to say I am very thankful to still have my mom here to be "grandma"!
