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!

"I am pretty sure that we will be matched by Christmas time but I won't get too hopeful." - this sentence made me laugh. I too thought that you would have your referral by last Christmas. Now we're halfway through this next year and still nothing. It's crazy. I'm glad that you had fun with Tammy and Eric! How fun for bloggy friends to meet :)

Oh, little friend! Your wait is almost as painful for me as my own! I can't wait for you to get that little munchkin! At least you'll have TONS of patience by the time you become a mom. :)

I still can't believe how long you and Brian have been waiting, but I know it's because your perfect child isn't quite ready yet... Hopefully, it'll happen very soon though!

Hope, hope, hope, pray, pray, pray that you receive a referral soon. I smiled when I saw you met another bloggy friend who is adopting also from the Philippines. We just returned from vacation and spent time with Julie and Rachel which was fun. We also spent time with a family who adopted from the same orphanage. There is such a common bond.
