When are we getting our kid?

Okay, this is an adoption blog afterall.  Well, it started that way.  It’s evolved, because frankly — there’s no kid.  But it appears my yo-yo post is concerning some of you, so I’ll give you the latest predictions for The Kidlet, for whom we are anxiously awaiting a real name and a real face. 

According to China Adoption Forecast, we should see our kidlet’s face sometime between August 25 and November 3.  Hey!  We’re in THE RANGE.  The more realistic time frame according to China Adoption Forecast is September 7, however they have always been ahead of the game on this.  We think it will be early October.  Like the rest of you pre-adoptive maniacs, hags, princesses, idiots, parents we’re anxiously watching The Rumor Queen to see when the September referrals come out and how far they get.  I’m hoping for at least through November 28, 2005, but some rumors are indicating maybe through the 29th.  I’m also hoping they come out before Labor Day.  Of course, you know those early rumors — they can kill you. 

Me, I’m just swimming and walking to China.  I gotta get there soon.  Gotta gotta.  So, do you really want me to research the Slinky?  Cuz I could.

  1. OMG, I can’t imagine how hard this never ending wait has been for you. It has taken patience to a whole new level. I will be crossing my fingers for you that you see your baby’s face in September – and if not, that you will avoid going insane until October. :o)

    Keep holding on…… you’re referral is right around the corner.

  2. Wow, you are so close now…can’t wait to see (hear) your face when It Finally Happens…!

  3. Big bird is dumping a pile outside your door very soon my friend. I have neighbours with LID of the 25th who were told the first week of Sept.
    So you still have time to reseach slinkys, head lice, bowling balls and syphillis.

  4. how can you remain so cool…………I’m already bugging out and have 9 china months to go

  5. Ha – you think I’m cool. That’s sweet. Insanity is baseline for me, so you just can’t tell!

  6. A slinky, A slinky, it’s such a wonderful toy!!
    It’s really soon for you!! I might see my daughter’s face in Sept/Oct too — of 2009!!!
    Let’s hope this last bit of the wait goes quickly for you.
