18 hours and counting!!

CCAA finally updated their website and even though we knew that our referral
would be in this batch, it's great to see that officially we've finally been matched with Baby S. It's also great that local adopters Jodi & Dave, Utah bloggy buddy Julie and my California gal Jodie hoho are also receiving their referrals, along with many others. Check out the "We have our referral" section in my side bar to see all the beautiful babies. A big congrats to all the new families.

OK, I know that everyone is waiting for an update on Baby S so I'll tell you what's happening. The stork delivered his package to our agency in Denver at 9:12 am mountain time. All of Baby S's information is currently being translated and they are checking with the orphanage on the health status and availability of each child. That will be completed today and in approximately 18 hours I'll receive a phone call with her basic information and a picture. On Saturday I should receive a package with all of her information and more pictures!!!

The babies that I've seen referred this month are all beautiful and I love seeing all the pictures that have been posted thus far.

Why am I posting so late today? Well believe it or not, on referral day, I was away from the computer all day!! But away from the computer for a good reason. My friends Mary (center), Teresa (right) and I had a wonderful little luncheon today. They'll both be away the weekend of my baby shower so today they showered Baby S with lots of wonderful and beautiful gifts. It was a great lunch and we love all the gifts. A big thanks to both Mary & Teresa.

OK, to keep you busy until I have the info on Baby S, you can go here to guess her province, weight and birth date.

Also, I'm revealing a little more of her name. As I posted before, the first letter of Baby S's name is "M". Here is another beautifully hand painted letter of her name. This letter could be in the middle or the end of her name, have fun guessing!!

Until tomorrow I'm just going to drool over all the beautiful new babies!!!

  16. You are such a fun one teasing us about this child's name. I think I went through the whole baby book and cornered you on eacch on. Of course, as soon as you give up the goods I'll say 'Of course, that is the ONE name I didn't mention ;0)'

    Mari meaning 'wished for child' or
    Myra meaning 'wonderful'

    Myeisha meaning 'one who is loved greatly' was tempting, but too unusual.

  18. Marissa?
    Maura?
    Melanie?
    Margaret?

    I can hardly wait to find out! The suspense is killing me!
