This Thursday will mark four weeks since the last batch of referrals, so it's possible we could get The Call this week. Realistically and logically, I think it's more likely to happen next week, but I'm excited all the same. After 14 months of waiting, we're now down to mere days! Keep us in your thoughts and prayers this week.
As preparation, Lance and I visited babies this weekend. On Saturday afternoon, I held our new grand-nephew for the first time. He's not even three weeks old yet, so he slept through our entire visit. That gave Great-Aunt Susan an opportunity to admire him, though. Saturday night we went to dinner at the home of a couple who adopted a baby through Sunny Ridge this summer. Miss Gigi is now 11 months old, and she is a ball of fire! She couldn't bother to sit quietly and be admired -- she had things to do. The great news is that she is happy and healthy and seems to be right on track developmentally. Her parents are very pleased with the care she received at her Social Welfare Institute in China, and they can't imagine her not being a part of their family. It made me really eager to start chasing our own little one around our house!
