Still Waiting

Audrey called today and we are still waiting for 1 more signature. Then we wait for the Visa. It is looking like we will miss her first birthday. This makes me very sad. I know she will not know the difference but I know. She will not get to look at herself smashing a cake on her 1st birthday. We will of course celebrate later. Just wait until next years birthday. Hopefully she will be home by Thanksgiving. They keep saying it won't be long but it feels very long. She is back at the orphanage. Marie (the director) says she seems to have put on a few pounds.
In other news we know nothing about China. We are now taking random guesses. I think we will go to China in July of next year. Maybe I will start a poll.


POLL

Ok Rory will be 7 months old at her refferal and we will go get her in July. When she is 9 months old.

Anyone else care to guess? You can just post in comments or I can post them here if you email me your guess. i need to pass time.

OOH and your going to get her referral in Feb.
just enough time to get Lilly stable and adjusted. Then again poor Rory will taking some of "Queen Lilly's" attention!

I am a little worried about Princess Lilly adjusting to having a new princess around. It should be interesting. I imagine there will be some "my mommy's" going around.

My Turn!!!!!! How fun!!!! People have these games for when someone is pregnant... What a neat twist to the game!!!!!

OK. Enough Chatter. My guess...
Based on my research of China adoption, I unfortunately guess that (on paper) she will be 13 months old at referral and 16 months old when she meets Mom and Dad. (Sorry!)

I'm guessing 12 months at referral and 15 months at homecoming...

Hope it comes soon!
