July Referral Updates

I've removed the Diner post for a later time

First rumor has the 25th as the cutoff. Unconfirmed!!!

25th Getting Firmer...

Firmer - Start Preparing

By now, all should be prepared for the cutoff to be the 25th.

Congratulations to all those receiving their referrals! We are beyond happy for each and every one of you and as much as we had hoped to be a part of this batch of referrals, we can fully appreciate your time of immense joy! Again, Congratulations!

The 27th has missed the cutoff.
No definite word on the 26th but any faint hopes are dimming rapidly.

Multiple agencies are reporting the 25th as the cutoff

Friends, just saw the rumour - hang in there - ride is bumpy, as you know, this time of the month - just let it all play out --- and open another bottle of vino! :)

we are all out here waiting, hoping and praying!


Michaela said...

I hope the CCAA matches until 01/27and you get your referral this month. Then January would finally be finished-done and over with after "only" 5 month(the CCAA was closed from 01/28 to 02/05/06 due to their CNY holiday)-not that I'm keeping track or anything -LOL!
Keeping my fingers crossed!
Orlando, FL
LID: 05/24/06

With RQ's poll numbers the 25th would be a really small batch. Try not to lose hope, it's only 1 agency saying it's the 25th. Keeping my fingers crossed for you.

3D said...

Hoping and praying for you!!

Keep smilin!

Ruth & Brian said...

Checked out RQ this a.m. and saw your comment - was curious if you got any info from our agency about cut-off's???

I'm on the verge of feeling so bummed yet want to stay optimistic - needing the HOPE today!

Alyson & Ford said...

Please email me...

OH MY #6 said...

I am still very hopeful!


Don and Be said...

Hanging in there with you, For & Aly.
Much Love,

Sandy said...

Thinking of you guys! Hang in there! (((HUGS)))

sea star said...

Why can't the CCAA just finish Jan for all of us 'o6'ers??? It's a bumpy ride for sure. Hang in there!

Briana's Mom said...

Definitely thinking of you today...

a Tonggu Momma said...

Sorry for the timing -- I truly didn't believe we'd hear news until Friday - but you've been given an award. Deal with it or not, as time and the referral roller coaster permits. Smiles, Tonggu Momma

Kelly And Allison said...

Don't lose your hope. Hang in there. You never know.

Donna & Joe said...

I've been really busy at the office all morning, but just glanced at RQ. My heart sunk for you and Aly when I saw the 25th/26th rumor!

Don't give up hope yet, because we still don't know for sure. I'm still hoping for the 27th!!!

Donna :)

Ruth & Brian said...

Email is on its way!!!

Carrie said...

Hang in there. As someone who missed the cut-off by one day, I know what your going through. Don't give up hope yet, but know that next month could finally be THE MONTH for sure!!!!!!!


Laureen Burke said...

My heart just sunk when I saw the possible cutoff and then my heart lightened after reading your comment on RQ. Your attitude is so positive and other-focused. What wonderful parents you two are going to be to this little one!
Blessings to you!
Laureen and Isabel

Nina, David & Ariel said...

Ugh, this sucks. I am also in awe of your wonderful attitude :)

Mine is not so wonderful.

Well, if they manage to do another three days of LIDs in August, we'll get to meet each other in China! I would very much look forward to that :)

And here's hoping the rumor is wrong and they get through the 27th.

sarah said...

I so want(ed) you to be in this batch. . . . !!

Consolation? If the cut off truly does not include the 27th, you'll have no-sweat for the next batch....

I love your grace / strength in the midst of the storm!

ZhangshuMom said...

I am so, so sorry to hear you may have missed the cut off. You have a tremendously positive attitude. I remember also missing the cut off by a day or 2 back in 2006. Our prayers are with you!

Sophia's Mama said...

so sorry you missed the cutoff... all I can say is hang in there your time is coming...

and it will be a glorious day

Kelly And Allison said...

What a roller coaster ride!! Look at the bright side, you are not far and all good things have to wait and worth it. Keep the faith.


Half Gaelic, Half Garlic! said...

Ok...this is not the best news but, you have to me next....thinking of you both....hang in there!


Johnny said...

Awww. When I saw the date on another blog, I jumped here the first thing. I'll send you private emails on my view on this.

Daniella said...

I was so dissappointed to read your post with the most likely cutoff. Hang in there.

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

I sooo hope they get to the 27th.. but if not... WE know for sure next month is ALYZABETH AN'S GRAND INTRODUCTION MONTH...
I sooo am praying that it is this month..

Catherine said...

((hugs)) friends. August will be your month but it's still must be unbelieveably hard to hear this right now.

Love and hugs....August is right around the corner!!

KHM said...


You are next now - it is a sure bet. But I am disappointed for you.

Gail said...

Oh...Oh No.
I hope this is wrong.
I missed the cut off by 1 day.
The positive??
Next month there will be no stressing "are we in?" You know you are in and can just enjoy the excitement of Referral Day!!

Hang in there.
Your daughter is so close!

Kelly & Sindy said...

Thinkng of you today! It's got
to be a great feeling knowing
that your next!!! You will get
to see your precious baby's
face approx the same week I

fall is such a lovely time to

perfect child with the perfect


Take Care,

Sindy & Allie

OH MY #6 said...

A long month you two have had. I am sure you are disappointed.


kris said...

I just keep thinking if they don't make it to 1/27- you are IN IN IN IN for August. That's like, 4 weeks away.

FOUR weeks after this incredibly long haul.

Home stretch.

But I still have my fingers crossed that the rumors are off by a couple of days in your direction!

Vivian M said...

One way or another, you will have your little one in your arms this year!!!
I remember being disappointed when they unexpectedly split our referral month so many years ago. But I also knew that we would be referred the perfect child for us the following month, and that's why we had to wait an extra month.
I was right. Hang in there!

Joannah said...

I was thinking about you guys and wondering if you made it this month. I'm sorry that you have to continue waiting, but it looks like you're up next!
