We are NEXT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!










Can you believe it? We can't....

After all this time, 2 1/2 years of waiting and many more dreaming we are on the verge of becoming parents. It is an amazing feeling but indescribable really. The love we feel in our hearts for a child we don't know yet, the anticipation and excitement is all unexplainable. Referrals were sent from the CCAA and started arriving yesterday. The CCAA referred families with Log In Dates(LID) between Dec. 28th 2005 and Jan 4th 2006. I know I speak for all of the Jan families when I say we are glad to finally say "See Ya later" (insert Tony Soprano Voice here) to December 2005 and hello to January 2006. The CCAA made it through 8 days of referrals this time around, that is pretty good really. We have 6 days left between the current cutoff date of Jan 4th 2006 and our LID of Jan 10th 2006. We are weeks away now from finally seeing our baby. This time next month we will be celebrating and reminding each other how to breathe. When we finally hold Sophia's picture in our hands I know we will not be able to think straight but we will be filled with joy... I want to skip right through March and go right to April but that would mean missing the babies that are currently being referred to families that we have been corresponding with for more then 2 1/2 years. We are so happy for them and want to say congratulations to each and everyone... Now take a moment and go look at their cutie pies over on RQ's babies post.

You and Riz are going to be wonderful parents. Sophia is lucky to have the two of you.

Susan, I NEVER would have made it through our wait for Hope if it weren't for you. You have been such a support system, and so patient and encouraging as you've been waiting for Sophia...your time is FINALLY coming and I just wish you could hear our screams of joy from Ohio the day you get the call!!! All your dreams are about to come true...enjoy every moment!!

Love you guys!!
