The Race To Alyzabeth

I have never been one to fall prey to superstitions. I'll walk under ladders, step on a crack and the number 13 is just another number to me. I don't go out of my way to dispel superstitions as I just don't give them power. So today marks what Aly believes to be 13 days until we receive our Referral Call.

Our agency will lag others in making The Call generally by a day. Long story short, they have their representative in China verify and confirm the match, including an actual visit to the orphanage. It's just how they do things. And we're not complaining. Actually, it provides us with a sense of security and relief.

So here's to Lucky 13 :) as we continue our count down to Alyzabeth...

Yay for 13!! That's LESS THAN 2 WEEKS!!! Wahooo!! Bring on those referrals!

I have an agency that is conservative too and I feel like you do. I will get an initial call within a day or 2 of others but then will probably have to wait 5 l-o-n-g days before getting more details and more importantly, seeing her picture! Cannot begin to imagine how hard that is going to be. Our agency does all the translation and review too before they show us our pictures and we need to book an appt. to go to the agency to get our package and pics. Thankfully our rep is SUPER in working with her clients and books people 7 days a week almost 24 hours a day.

Won't be long now friend. SO very, very excited for you!!
