Quick Post as I am still fighting off a summer cold...
BIG NEWS!! I got the official call that I am now registered in Vladivostok! Yea!!
However, the "typical" wait time for a referral is 1-3 months. So please say a prayer, cross your fingers, throw some salt over your shoulder for myself & the Confers, the other family from my agency waiting for Vladivostok. I am hopeful, thinking positive, for a quick referral!!
So if I were feeling better, you'd see me dancing in the streets -- but I am not up to it right now, and there is more waiting ahead!
Hot off the press... it's a DOUBLE BIG NEWS DAY!! Lorien from my agency just called and she has received a copy of my precious 171H! The official form saying the the BCIS has approved my adoption. This means I am PAPER READY! I checked my mail and nothing up here, maybe tomorrow! But just knowing it's completed is great news. That means I received that form in 2 months - a month ahead of the estimate. Woo hoo!!!! When it rains, it pours!
