Wow, time is passing quickly and now I am getting nervous! I will enter the window in just 2 weeks!!!!!!! I am prepared for referral times to increase. My agency is quoting 3-5 months, and just 3 months ago referrals were coming closer to the earlier part of the timeframe. Now referrals are easily exceeding that timeframe. So I am predicting within one month, the agency will change the referral time to at the very least 4-6 months but more than like 5-7 months. I am not at all stressed by that. I believe my child will be referred to me, despite timeframes and case coordinators, and law changes and regulations, she will be my daughter and I will be her mom.
Not to mention, I take the Bar Exam in February and I don't know why I thought traveling BEFORE that would make ANY SENSE AT ALL!
So my new referral guess: 12/05 (No scientific calculations, its my brother's birthday lol) up from 10/16 (Michigan Sweetest Day lol). With travel week 1 of March!
To all my PAP's (adoption speak: Prospective Adoptive Parent) hang in there, our time is not always the right time. There are greater forces in the universe that contribute (I know weird huh).
