One Month until Referral????

Autumn (my niece) enjoying Vern's bed!!

Well, we have good news for once!! We are very close to a referral. We think we may get a referral the first week in April. CCAA has matched up to Jan 4th. 2006. We are Jan. 11th, so if CCAA continues the trend of matching 7 to 8 days for the last 2 months then we are in. But they have been known to only match 3 to 5 days so we are cautious about getting too excited. We had our home study visit today so we are almost done with the paperwork to start filing for a new I-171H (which we need to travel to China), Our adoption agency has no parents logged in with China until Jan. 11th so we are hoping this is good sign that China will make it up to the 11th. If we get a match in April than we may possibly travel by May 10th!! After 2 1/2 years of waiting we are not ready??? Can you believe that? We have just been too nervous to get the baby's room ready too soon..we didn't want to put a jinx on anything. I guess the rush is on now! Please say prayers that we will be in the group of referrals!!
