When Oh When Will Our Little One Come???

After posting the picture of the boys at Christmas with the little Asian girl I started to think about when referrals will come. My all time favorite person of royalty is the RUMOR QUEEN herself. She is an adoptive mother who puts all the China adoption rumors together in one place and shares the rumors with us adoptive families. There have not been many rumors out there but there have been a few that are worth mentioning.

First of all, WE ARE NEXT!!!!! The last batch only covered to 10-13-05 and we are 10-17-05. Basically that means that no matter what, we should receive our referral for Mia in the next batch. When will this batch come??? GREAT QUESTION!!! I HAVE NO IDEA! At this point there are some agencies saying they may be mailed next week so there is a chance that we may get to see Mia's face for the first time next week. Most agencies are saying that the referrals will arrive the week after next. So, basically, no matter what, we should see Mia's face within 2 weeks. That seems so close and I can hardly wait!!

So, what happens after we get our referral? After we accept our referral we will travel to pick Mia up about 4 to 6 weeks later. So, we should be in China in about 8 to 10 weeks picking Mia up. YAAAA!!!! I cant wait to get her picture and her size so I can start the shopping spree! I LOVE CLOTHES and dressing my boys was fun but nothing like dressing a girl. My best friend has a one year old girl, Ava, and Mia will inherit all her ADORABLE clothes (luckily Laila, her mom, has great taste so Mia will inherit some REALLY NICE CLOTHES). But I still want to buy Mia all those adorable spring dresses that are out there now--- so come on referrals--- I need to start shopping!

Anyway, just a thought I wanted to post. I think I will post some pictures of Mia's room tomorrow. I am finally going to put the pictures on the walls. I'm not sure why I have not up until now since her basic room has been done since December 2005, but I think I am ready to commit to hanging the wall stuff tomorrow. I will take pictures of the final product :)


  1. Welcome to the wonderful world of blogging! It's fun and therapeutic, especially during the long wait. Now we are literally down to days. We are in the next match and I can hardly stand it! Soon, we will see baby Mia and my Lindsey. Hang on tight because it's finally our turn!!

  2. Great job on the blog. Welcome to bloggie land. :)

    I'm so excited to see your referral within the next two weeks. Wish I could say that I'd see our daughters face - but I know we'll miss the cut-off by 1 or 2 days.

    Good luck!!

  3. Blogging is so addicting. Nice job. We also have a Mia. She is the love of our lives.
    Can't wait to see your Mia.

    From a fellow Sept/Oct grouper, I love your blog. I know I've told you before how cute your boys are, but they are! I can't wait to celebrate with you when you see your sweet Mia!

  5. Hi Christy,

    I was drawn to your blog which you noted on the RQ Forum, because of the name Mia. I know there are thousands of families adopting, but I thought it uncanny that our families both chose the name Mia, and our log-in dates are only one day apart.

    You have a nice blog and a lovely family. My very unscientific prediction is that we will have referrals on Tuesday, March 6th because CCAA wants to give me the best birthday present ever.

  6. Jeff,

    OK, you think the fact that we both chose Mia and that our LID's are only a day apart, but wait for the best twist of them all. MY BIRTHDAY IS MARCH 6 also!!! Isnt that strange!!! I looked for your mail but couldnt find it so hopefully you will see this post.
