Feeling Hopeful

The rumors this week from our dear RQ have made me feel more hopeful about receiving my referral next year instead of sometime during the next decade. I was also encouraged by Brian Stuy's most recent analysis of wait times.

So, IF wait times stay in the range of 14-15 months, I could be looking at a September or October referral next year. It would be wonderful to celebrate Christmas 2007 with Jillian in my arms.

It was about time. I needed some positive news.

    Ohhh wouldn't a larger referral batch be wonderful? It's been so long since we've had a large referral batch to celebrate! Here's hoping they go deep into August!

    I stumbled onto your blog quite awhile back after googling Jillian's Closet (searching for the clothing line). Reading of your journey to your Jillian (my Jillian is 15mths old) is awesome. Your patience, excitement, determination ?? what other words describe it many? Is an inspiration. I hope she reaches your arms soon.

    jacquie,

    Thanks for reading my blog and leaving such a supportive comment. I think I remember you from a few months ago? Give your little Jillian a hug for me!

    Ironic how we are so excited about a 14- 15 month wait now, when we started out around 6- 8! The one thing that would be nice would be some stability, and it sounds like that might be coming soon. Let's keep our fingers crossed!

    That would be wonderful to have Jillian for Christmas- I hope to have Miya by Christmas this year. If I'm really optimistic, I would hope for Thanksgiving this year! Maybe I will know better by next week. Getting excited, again. ;)

    Here's to hoping...

    I would love for the next batch of referrals to go to at least mid-August ( it would be even better if it were all of August, but a girl can dream, right??)

    Hanging in there with you!!!

    I really have a feeling things have stabilized and your patience will be rewarded sooner than you think!

    I think the wait will stabalize and if anything maybe even start to get shorter....lets hope so....looks like there will be referrals this week...always exciting!
