At a time when I am usually stalking the internet for referral joy, I have to say that for the moment I am feeling sad. A person I have been following for quite some time now (and most of you have too, I am sure) missed the cut off by one day. ONE FREAKING DAY! So this post is a shout out to Mary-Mia who has been waiting SO SO SO long for her baby and I so wished she was getting a referral this week.

Mary-Mia's "Do They Have Salsa in China" was the first major china adoption blog I found last fall when I started thinking about adoption. I, like others, stalked her site without posting but merely enjoying her endless humor. Then we ran into what we thought was a snag in our plans to adopt so without knowing where to turn I emailed M3 and she got back to me right away with as much info she had on the issue that had come up. We have since resolved that issue but I have such a special place in my heart for M3. I am feeling her pain today. The good news is that, she is, without a doubt, NEXT!

XOXOX to you M3!

***Please note: I am happy for all of you who did receive your stork alert and will be stalking your referrals as they show up! Especially NOvary who missed it by one day last time! ****

Thank you sweetie! You and other friends have been so kind this week that it's overshadowing the pain of missing by a day. How can I focus on being sad with so much love and support? It's amazing.

Thank you again, and here's to an incredible August referral announcement! :-)

I was sans internet for most of our vacation (welcome relief really!) and when I finally logged back on and saw Mary-Mia didn't get her referral I could have cried! I've been following their journey for awhile now and that is heart breaking.....I'm so excited for them next, that brings you one month closer!!!!!
