So, as you know, in early June, Geoff and I changed our child request to be open to a referral of either siblings or a single child. Just a few weeks before we did this, another family (which had been waiting a wee bit longer than us for a sibling referral) also changed their child request so that they, too, were open to a referral of either siblings or a single child.
Well, guess what? They just got their referral of a little girl yesterday! Meaning that it took about three months from the time of changing their request to receiving their referral.
Did I neglect to mention that we've been waiting now for two months, two weeks and two days since changing our child request?
To quote a friend who just emailed me...we're freaking out a little around here now.
Breathe, Ruth, don't forget to breathe.
