2 years, 2 months, 2 weeks and 2 days

There is nothing new to report but I just thought that it was neat that we have now reached 2 years, 2 months, 2 weeks and 2 days since ICAB approval. Maybe this will be our lucky week!

26 months

We now have another month under our belts. The summer seems to be flying by and before you know it the fall will be here. We have had a full week of lovely weather but today it got cold again but I'm not complaining.
Last night we had a lovely visit with Tammy and Eric who live in Quebec and are also adopting from the Philippines. It was the first time we had met another family in person who were also adopting from the Philippines. Of course there was tons to talk about and sadly they had to leave at 12:00am as I was falling asleep. I am up at 4:15 am every morning so I usually go to be around 9:30 - 10:30. Needless to say, I'm not a very good hostess! It was a great visit and I'm hoping that we may be able to visit them in Quebec sometime as well.
There was another referral earlier this week in the Yahoo group. Tammy had also mentioned that she knew of a family in Quebec who had just been matched after waiting 28.5 months. I am pretty sure that we will be matched by Christmas time but I won't get too hopeful. Last year at this time, I was thinking that we might be matched by Christmas 2009. I was pretty far off with that guess!

Next week Tammy and Eric from Quebec, who are also adopting from the Philippines, are visiting Newfoundland. They are spending a few days in St. John's so we are getting together for a hike and supper. I'm very excited to meet another family who are in the same boat as us. They have been ICAB approved for 20 months so hopefully we both don't have too much longer to wait!
The weather here has been freezing cold for the past two days. This morning it was 6 degrees celcius around 44 Farenheit. The high for today was only 11 degrees. Sad but true. I am hoping that we get some summer soon!! I had to wear heavy pants and a sweatshirt last night when walking Sid and I wished that I had worn gloves!
