Baby Panda Exam

April Pandas

Natioal Zoo Panda Baby Posted by Picasa

Since I am Dossier to China in April I am a part of the April Pandas group. I have been following the Baby Panda at the National Zoo (Since we are in Washington DC). I was lucky enough to be there the day the baby was born, so I took that as a sign. Anyway here is the link to the official April Pandas website if you want to follow along with the rest of the group.

This is so everyone know who we are- I have finally figured out how to add pictures!

More Bad News from China

Well- referral times are still going up. It is reported that the only referrals coming out this month are up to March 17th- instead of the whole (or almost whole) month. This means that we are probably looking at a December referral instead of November, but because we do not know our Log In Date it could be as late as January. I am not sure I can take it. The China Adoption office is also closed an entire week at the begining of October for the Chinese National Holiday- so who know what else will slow down because of that.
Between this my cold and my hayfever- I feel really drained and almost in tears and well as sick to my stomach. Jamie keeps reminding me that we will get this child that is meant for us- but sometimes that is hard to believe. Then there are the other things that keep running through my head- if referral times are going up the babies will stay longer in the orphanage and be older when they come home. I want Langley as soon as possible so she doesn't have to stay there long.
Right now I am trying just to let the news sink in- and accept it. Once I can accept December- maybe I can think about accepting January- which is where it may end up.
Right now I am drowning my sorrows with a Starbucks iced coffee and a glazed donut. I have plenty of time to run it off before Langley gets here.
And to top it all off Rori and Lorelei still haven't made up on Gilmore Girls.
I just want to hibernate until our referral.
Sorry this post is so down I will try harder next time!
