Referrals have begun to arrive in the US today. We can be fairly certain that the cutoff is 1/4/06. That's right! We are finally starting to see referrals in our LID year!!! To give you an idea about what goes on inside the mind of a waiting parent when referrals arrive- We have already calculated that with our LID of 3/10/06, there are only 65 LIDs ahead of us at this point. We have seen 8 days referred in each of the last two months. If (and that's a BIG if) current trends hold, we could see a referral in 9 months which would be December. If I REALLY want to hope big, I think about the fact that there are some odd 8 days in February of 2006 where nobody was logged in so that may mean one month less than the initial extrapolation. So, my hope and best case scenario right now is a referral in November or December and travel in December or January. It could happen, folks!!!

You have now waited longer than I did so I am feeling pretty lucky and also pretty sad for my friends. I hope it goes faster than expected. Can't wait for your Meili to come home.

Well it's about time! How you have hung on this long without going postal is pretty amazing. I'm praying for much larger batches and a referral for you by summertime.
