It's Time...

I've decided - crazy as it may be - that it is time to put down on the blog a countdown to Polar Cub. It is getting close enough that hopefully it won't be too long. Maybe I'm jinxing the whole thing, but hopefully not.

There were two days worth of referrals this month. That was really sad for a couple of reasons. First of all my friend Catherine missed the cut off by ONE day. The only positive about it is we all know that YOU ARE NEXT my friend! August is Hannah month!!

Secondly, is purely selfish, but at this point the more days the better! I am sure everyone feels the same.

Yesterday while my friend, Cary, and I were working on the curtains for the nursery we started talking about this wait. We had a good laugh about the whole thing. What else can you do? We have been waiting so long that it will seem strange to NOT wait any more. {Cary is also waiting to go to China. Her LID (log-in-date) is July 14th.}

Who knows what the next few months will bring. I feel we will have a December/January referral. Then again, it is all just a guess. Who knew our 8-10 month wait would extend to 40+ months!?!

We WILL wait for as long as it takes.


  1. We will get there!!!

    Keep smilin!

  2. I love seeing a countdown on here now! It means that you are finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel! :D

  3. YOU are sooo close..
    I think next month will be 4 days.. Maybe 5 days.. but time will tell.. we will all wait for our girls..
    Have a great week..

  4. I have never found a blue 'x' to be a thing of beauty...until now. Bring 'em on.

  5. I am hoping to see some bigger batches mixed in with the smaller ones, not just small ones. Hopefully your day will come sooner~

  6. Wow... I knew you were getting close but actually seeing it on the calendar... it'll be here before you know it.

  7. I absolutely cannot imagine how you have managed to stay sane waiting this long. There will be tears and cheers from my part of the world when you post your babies face.

  8. Yeah, a count down makes it seem even more real. You WILL get there and until then, I am right here waiting along with you...

  9. Hoping these next few months go by quickly for everyone! I can't wait for Catherine! August can't come fast enough!!

  10. Ooo...a countdown calendar! Love it! This truly helped me during the wait as did those silly glass beads. Even today I've had 2 people ask, 'How many more beads?' Anything visual that helps us out works!

    Thanks for your encouragement friend! Here on this post....and with all your text messages along the way. You always seem to know the perfect time for a pick-me-up and they're much appreciated!!

    So thankful for the friendship we share. Love you. C
