I Promised Myself I Wouldn't Do This

I can't believe this. I have a blogger friend in Texas that is shaking their head right now. I'm sorry J. I don't know what to tell you. No excuses. It's a pitiful thing...

Usually, the take your breath away rumors on RQ come later in the month, closer to the next referral date. Well, she just posted this little jewel and it's sure to make for some shallow breathing.

RQ Quote:
"And last but certainly not least, I have a good rumor to share. One agency says that the CCAA says next month will also have a lot of days in it. That’s probably the earliest rumor about next month ever. But, I’ll take it".

Don't completely give up on me J. I'll break this addiction. I know I can do it.
OK. I need to come clean. The truth is:

Hello. My name is Ford and I'm a RQ junkie...

It is impossible not to be an RQ junkie when you are this close to a referral! I know I was!!!

Johnny said...

It MUST be true! You saw the letters on the screen!

Actually, when you are 1-2 months away from referral, you get a pass.

Eileen said...

It's okay - we totally understand!!! :-)

Wendy said...

Would that not be totally and completely awesome????

katd said...

I just found your blog through your comment on mine, and I am so excited to keep reading!! I love your layout:) And I hope so much you get your referral in July!
Do you mind if I link your blog from mine? Hope to keep in touch:)

Don't feel bad,... I didn't even adopt from China and I'm a RQ junkie. It's so addicting!

amy said...

I try not to go there, but I do anyway!

Donna said...

We've all been saying for months and months that eventually things would have to speed up. Could it finally be true? If only...

I was just gonna type that Johnny will totally cut you a break when you're on the brink of a referral- but I see he let you know already!

OH MY #6 said...

Hello. My name is LEA and I'm a RQ junkie too!


PS. Fanfriggintastic news! Oh my goodness!

T&W said...

I'm a RQ junkie too. They say the first step is admitting you have a problem. Wonder if they have "meetings" on the Shamian Island? :)
You ready? I'm ready!!!!

Michelle said...

I used to be a RQ junkie but I had to quit that addiction cold turkey several months ago. I even took her off my bloglines! I'll probably start "using" again when we get closer too. :)

You're so close! Woohoo!

Half Gaelic, Half Garlic! said...

Yes....I am also a junkie....have been since LID....don't post much, but always lurking for the newest information!

I have to admit....this is very exciting this early two must be going out of your minds knowing that your wait is coming to an end and you will have that baby in your arms!

Can't wait to follow your journey!

DC said...

As an "adoption newbie," I have to know: what is RQ???

Mike and Rhonda said...


I too am a RQ junkie. I hate her yet I LOVE her. Do you think after referral we can break it, like cold turkey?

sarah said...

I totally read/noticed that 'jewel' too and thought of you. I think we will see each other in China!

kimmons said...


How incredible would it be to get our referrals in July?

Kim R.
LID 1/27/06 also!

DC said...

Oooooh. Thank you for the info! I'm checking out RQ now. :)

Catherine said...

'Hi Ford!'

Can't blame you for being a RQ junkie...I have the exact same disease. Check it night and day.

SO happy to hear this early rumour. Praying it's true and that this time next month you're gazing lovingly at Alyzabeth's referral pic.

Portia P said...

Hi there - here via nacomleavmo.

I clicked through to RQ and totally understand you being a junkie. There are far more dangerous things to be addicted to.

Good luck with your referral

rubyiscoming said...

Dude, J is right - you firmly have the "hall pass" to entertain every darn rumour in the world right now - you're there. on the cusp of seeing your daughter's face!!

LaLa said...

Oh, you totally get a pass when you are this close!

Nina, David & Ariel said...

My name is Nina and I'm also addicted to RQ. And I'm not going to give it up!!

You are getting so close. I'm so excited for you!!


Vivian M said...

I am not shaking my head, I am JUMPING UP AND DOWN!!! Hope the rumor is right!

***** said...

Just check my stats on RQ and you'll see how addicted I really am!! Honestly, its embarrassing but I don't care.

You are so, so close! I hope you make it for July but, if not, you'll be able to say with 100% confidence you are NEXT! Either way, it will be here before you know it!


Donna & Joe said...

My heart skipped a beat when I read that early rumor.

I think we need to start a RQ anonymous club and make it so our computers shut down everytime we try to pull up her site. Except...can we wait until after our referrals??

Donna ;)

I'm ready to start the "big batch" chant for you guys now!

Ford, we're so proud you've joined the countless fathers who have stood to admit their addiction!! : ) Now go get another one of those brie tartlets Allyson made and a glass of wine and get out on that dock and you an Allyson enjoy discussing the focus of your addiction!!!!

(And by the way, you'll be able to quit cold turkey with no problem REAL soon!!!)

So excited for you both!!

I hit RQ probably once a month - round the time referrals are due.
My agency usually comes through 'bout the same time.

Gail said...

I also was an RQ junkie.
My cure???.... Getting a referral!

Now I check it periodically.
Right around the time when referrals are due.
I have friends waiting for theirs.
