There were only 2 days worth of LID's referred this month or last month however you want to look at it. This is very discouraging news, for those of you who don't understand, it means that each month the CCAA sends 1 batch of referrals out based on their LID. Right now there are 232 more days to go before they get to us.

The CCAA used to match up to 28-30 days but have decreased over the last few months to anywhere from 15-11-9 days. Now that they did only 2 days worth it makes me wonder how long will these small batches will last. All I can do is hope and pray that this trend will speed up. It will be encouraging to see the numbers back to the double digits.

Thanks Aunt Lori for the sweet Easter gifts, you made my day! I wish she were here so I could put them on her. I think the little t-shirt and scort are adorable with the little fish on them. Not to mention the smallest bathing suit I think I've ever seen! The sandals are sweet too. We're going to have quite a wardrobe for our little bunny. I can't wait to dress her up for Church on Sunday mornings, oh the fun I'm going to have!



On another note I was in at our local dollar store today to pick up some stationary and had a peek around, I almost dropped on the floor when I seen pregnancy tests for a buck!!!! I spent a bloody fortune on those things for years before our adoption process. But really though in all honesty can they guarantee quality assurance for a buck?

I think dollar store stuff is there because it was removed elsewhere... I'm not sure
but I probably would have bought a few just in case they worked. Just in case some miracle happens.

cute clothes, love the tiny shoes...

Cute outfits!! I just love the little skort!

I don't know what to say about CCAA. Hopefully there is some wise explanation for this month.

I know, 2 days of matches is very disappointing.

On another note...those dollar store prego tests are actually quite accurate. :) My sister and I have used them and they seem to have the same accuracy as the very expensive ones. We did always buy 2 "just in case"..but only 1 was usually needed. :)

I can't even imagine the wait you all are dealing with... I suck at waiting lol... But, I hope that things will speed up and the time flies for ya... but those are super cute outfits!!!

I am so depressed about this. We have approx. 460 days for them to process before it is our turn.

that's funny Debbie. I spent a small fortune on pregnancy tests at one time too...wasn't so funny then, but i can chuckle now. 17 bucks for a pregnancy test is way too much. glad the dollar store has them now.

The referral news is very upsetting. We just gotta believe it will turn around...but when?

Two days just stinks! I heard the rumours but to see it officially...that's another story.

Elizabeth said...

Well I used to order all my preg tests online for less than a buck each. And lucky that as I had a serious pee on a stick affliction.

Dannye said...

the two days does stink big time...and the rumors about the future not so bright either...but on a happier (??) note, I love the outfits you got, they really are adorable, hopefully soon!!!

Now on those pregnancy tests....just how old are they, expiration date way past due???heheh

2 days- I know it's tough and confusing! Keep Trying to think positive, although it's tough it really does help!

2 day's does suck..even though they were huge days.!

On a nicer note, I love the little bathing costume..really cute.
