Dream

I woke with a start around 6:00 am this morning having just wrangled myself from an awful dream. I had a dream that we got our referral and the way they sent the referral was via snail mail in a giant binder with everyone in your travel groups referral. So I get this huge binder and start madly flipping through to my section and when I find it there are no pictures. I keep scanning and scanning the pages for a picture and can't find one so I start reading the information. I immediately find out that our referral spontaneously burst into flames when it reached CCAI so they lost all her pictures. Our daughter's name was "Cassie" so there's the "c" part I was hoping for but she was born in September 2000 so she was nearly 11. She had bounced from foster care to foster care and had been referred 4 other times but they were all denied. Finally at the end of a long two pages of information I couldn't believe I was reading, there was a small faint picture that seemingly had partially survived the fire. And she looked like this:



Now that's a bad dream.

Oh heaven's what a bad dream for sure...nearly 11 wow! I have been hoping and praying for dreams of what she may look like and never once did I.

I hope you hear something soon, i'm sure your on pins and needles - but it's coming. Congrats on your upcoming referral!

Just clicked over from RQ and laughed aloud at this post... too funny!! It's been years since I've been in your shoes, but I still read RQ for when new referrals come out... it's fun to re-live it every time! :) Hope you see a sweet face VERY soon!!

Yes, yes, that is a bad dream! I'm so excited for you though as your referral should be here ANY day! Get your iron ready to iron all your money! Haa Haa!
