I've been going crazy, wanting to post more about our referral...but there were some situations we really needed to work out, and now we finally have. Unfortunately, there were some complications, and as a result we had to turn down our referral. We were of course sad for the little girl's sake, and upset that we couldn't adopt her. But there is some good news...
CHSFS called today to match us with a DIFFERENT little girl!! Coincidentally, she's the exact same age as the other child- 14 mos (DOB Jan. 16th.) She seems healthy, though very skinny (but we can fix that ;-)) And of course, she's a cutie!! The best part is that I still have a little sister after all! :-)
The referral story, very weirdly, was the exact same as before. It was a Thursday, same time of day, I was in same class at school...same reactions by my friends. Of course, the important thing is that my family will be bringing a little girl home, and hopefully very soon! I will be sure to post pictures as soon as our agency gives the okay- and until then, I'll be going all out, fixing up the nursery and buying little clothes and toys!!!!
I'm a big sis- AGAIN!
*Update (3/23): We officially accepted our referral! The pediatrician said our little munchkin looks healthy and good to go. Yippee! I can't wait to share pictures!!
