277 days

Today marks the three month anniversary of our dossier being logged in at CCAA. Based on original estimates, this should be our half way point to referral. Due to the recent slow down in referrals though, it is more likely that we are only 3/8 of the way to referral, or dare I say it, only 1/3 of the way. We started this process 277 days ago, but the past 90 days have felt as if they've taken longer than the first 187 days. When we were paper chasing, there was always something to do, filling out forms, proving we weren't criminals, photo copying, mailing and of course stalking the postman. Now it is sit and wait...Stalk the adoption boards and blogs for rumors of referrals. Guess I could get motivated and work on the nursery, seeing that I haven't made any progress in completing the room!


  1. We're coming up on the one year mark since we started the paperwork! It's just one looonnngggg journey isn't it?

  2. I know! Why does it seem, the further along we get, the further away we are from our referral??! NOT FAIR!! (boo hooo)

    As of yesterday we are two months into the "official" wait, so we're right behind you.

    I would be soooo happy if that meant we only had another 4 to go.

    Let's hope the CCAA speeds things back up - they worked so hard to bring the wait down, I can't imagine they will purposely let it go up and stay up.

    Or, I hope they won't, anyway.

  4. I'm keeping my head in the sand and hoping things speed back up. Very healthy, huh? *grin*

  5. I have been overdosing on ice cream to help sooth my pain. What are you going to do? Oh, Happy Anniversary.

  6. You just made me realize it's been 2months and one day since our LID. I didn't realize until now that much time had already passed.

    Next week we will be at the official 5 months wait. But the first 3 months flew by and now it seems to be creeping a little more slowly. Grrrr...why does that happen? Hang in there.

  8. Isn't there some Tom Petty song where he sings "the waiting is the hardest part." No doubt man.
