1yr anniversary of Referral

1yr. WOW!!!!!! We woke up very anxious that morning of June 6th knowing referrals had hit the west coast the day before, and hoping to get the call soon. I had gone to work as planned and had informed my sw to call my cell phone since Jeff would also be at work and could not be reached. (really)!! LOL Checking the RQ site frequently calls had been made and announcements were popping up everywhere. I was starting to worry, would we get the call, maybe they won't get them til tomorrow??!!! I had been in touch with my travelmates Gina and Candi all morning waiting to see if they had heard anything yet? I decided to go ahead and try to eat lunch, it was an Arby's market fresh sandwich, I will never forget. I was sitting with a couple of co-workers. had about half my sandwich gone, had just taken a bite and my phone rang. Why it was sitting on my desk I don't know, so I jump up, food in my mouth, not knowing what to do, my friend Lane yells, "spit it out" so as I am spitting my food out, I trip over my own feet while running to my desk before the call ends. I see my caller ID, it's my agency, my heart is pounding, hands shaking and she announces, "we got your referral in". Of course I cried trying to remember what I should be asking, she said that's all she knew and would call me back. Ok, so do I have a daughter, how old? So now I frantically call Jeff not really knowing anything yet but wanted him to know that the referrals had come in and that I would be calling him back soon. I knew nothing for another hour other then we had a child waiting for us. The wait was long but at least I was able to get my thoughts together about what I needed to ask. The call, "you have a daughter just under 7 months old named Li Zhang living in YouXi City Fujian, didn't know where it was, all I could think was I have a 7 month old daughter!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Call Jeff again to give him the news, we now sit at home several phone calls and emails later dreaming of what our little one will look like, waiting for the morning when we will receive our package........................................

Isn't it such a magical time? Whenever I hear about other people's referrals or gotcha days it just sends me right back to when I received Regan's news and when she was put in my arms. Doesn't the time just fly by? Enjoy your anniversary!!
