Well, there you have it.

November 25, 2005 is the cutoff. Listed first on the CCAA website. It's one more day than I had thought it would be. Am I sad about it? - No, not really. I'm actually a bit giddy because I know that I am next, without a doubt, well, only a tiny little one that something strange should happen within the next 31 days. (I'm guessing we'll see our referral on October 4th which is my Mom's birthday.) Eight of those 31 days I will be on the beach, without a care in the world. Leaving all the prep work, adoption, general everyday clutter behind me so we can focus on each other. I have a feeling that this month is going to go by rather quickly, for me anyway. I'll probably be a basket case the last week of it though. I'm actually a little bit excited.

Congratulations to all those who did fall into the 22-25th group!! Can't wait to see some pictures coming in!!

You WILL be next! I'm sorry it wasn't this time. I have been thinking about you so much.

It would be so neat if the referral came on your mom's birthday!

Hugs!!!

What a great attitude to have! What's one more month when you've hung in there this long, right? LOL!

Enjoy this last month before knowing who your girl is. Your lives are about to change so much. For the better, of course!

Congratulations on being NEXT. It really is a relaxing way to spend the month, without having to worry about anything. And especially if you are sitting on a beach - you lucky girl! Can't wait to hear your referral news next month.

Sweeeet! I loved being "next"! By the way, do everything now that you kept thinking you would just do after you get your referral. Dummy me waited, thinking I had plenty of time...now we leave Sept. 6th and I'm in panic mode!

Dear Kathy,

I am sorry. But, on the bright side, I was in a similar situation of knowing I was most likely in the next group, and the month kdid go by fast, except for the last week, which was a roller coaster. It will happen and it's amazing!
