Well, last week we got some good news.  Apparently we are very close.  Now, this could mean that we would get a phone call this week, or in two months...anyone who knows me knows that I can't stand not having a timeline to work with.  However, we are very excited.  It seems to be that the referrals keep coming in on Thursdays, so I'm not sure if that means anything, but every Thursday until I hear otherwise is going to be TORTURE.

October thoughts

Lately, I've been thinking more about our wait. Part of it may be due to the fact that the Cubs ended the season unexpectedly early and I have little else to consume that void. But more likely, it's because of the positive news we've received from our case worker. Through September this year alone, they have already had over 35 referrals from South Korea. At the end of 2007, they didn't even have that many total. So maybe we are still on track for everything. I'm trying not to get overly excited because there are so many unknowns that can delay the process.

I also just signed us up for the Eastern Social Welfare Society Families Yahoo! group. This will hopefully give us some opportunities to discuss things and communicate with families who are at the same stage as we are. Being with family and friends who have children really makes me excited about being a dad, and as ready as I ever will be. It doesn't help that on this Yahoo! group site some families have posted pictures of their kids and each one of is adorable!

For now, it's back to my Korean Survival Phrases podcasts!
