19 months and counting

Today is 19 months since ICAB approval. I was really hoping that we would have heard something by this point but no such luck. I guess that 2009 won't be the year that we receive our referral but hopefully it will come early in 2010. There haven't been many referrals lately but there was one a month ago to a couple who were approved in June 2008, we were approved in May, so hopefully our turn will soon come.
Things have been quite busy with it being Christmas and all. We've had several Christmas parties between work and friends and we still have a few left. Today was our Christmas dinner at work. I had a lovely meal but my favorite was the dessert, banana caramel bread pudding. It was too die for! Only 10 days left. It is hard to believe that Christmas is so close. I've decided to only work half days between Christmas and New Year's so that will be a treat. Then it's into 2010 we go!!

Hang in there Renee... I know how hard the wait can be especially during the holidays, but just think about next Christmas. Your little one will finally be home with you! I'm praying you'll receive your good news soon...
