No News...is Good News?

I should be doing something productive...like cleaning, folding laundry, or at minimum organizing/deleting photos.  Instead I'm watching Doras with Sunflower and checking China Adopt Talk for the latest news.

The current rumor is that referrals should be arriving this week and maybe August 8th is included...maybe not...maybe more.  August 8 would be 6 days matched leaving us 7 more days in front of us.  Really, it is silly.

Whether China matches to the 8, 9, or 10th doesn't make a difference to us.  Our odds of being matched in December is still low, but possible, and our more probable date of seeing our daughter's face is still February/March...and you know, those months are coming really soon anyway.

So clicking and clicking to find the latest news does not change anything...but it does waste time and give me a headache.  I should really turn off Dora and hunt down Sunflower...last I saw her she was heading up the stairs without clothes on and a pile of clothes in her arms to pack.

I guess because we took all three children on Friday to apply for passports she thinks she is going to China with us.  Oak figured we should get them all passports...in case we forget to find them childcare for while we are gone or have a need to flee to Canada.  

We got our passports at the start of the process...thank goodness adult passports are good for 10 years or we would have to renew them already.

On a side, related note, at one point I started panicking because we had talked to various people who might watch SnapDragon and Sunflower while we are gone, but I realized I hadn't asked anyone about Huckleberry.  That's because he is traveling to China with us...I hope I remember that when the time comes.

Oh, you are a riot. So...as for now Huckleberry is definitely going with you? That is awesome. :)

I don't know about you...but the fact that the holiday season is upon us is sooo helpful for me. I just keep telling myself that if I can distract myself until January. And then in January we better find something out. Maybe you can tell yourself the same thing. :) Then you'll be pleasantly surprised if you hear something earlier.

Well... I'm planning on meeting you there! In China that is. I'll be the crazy one. I'm thinking Feb or March.
See you there!
