New Poll!

H-man asked me today when it was Christmas - I said 30 days (its actually only 29!)... it got me thinking... geez.... it's the end of the month.... and what comes out at the end of the month? (besides new grey hairs, desperately needing hairdresser attention?!)

REFERRALS!

Or allocations as they are usually referred to here in Oz. I sneaked a peak at RQ. She's saying it's likely they'll get to 23rd (doesn't get a rating though, as it's pretty much guess work!). I'm still not banking on it... we'll see. I went to post a comment, to thank RQ for her great work, when I read the last comment...
"We got our referral today!!! Baby Girl, under 1 *expedited SN*"
My stomach flip-flopped... if SN referrals are appearing, one would think the NSN wouldn't be far away?!!

Its been 4 years and 2 months, since we began this journey...

It seems so surreal that this leg of the journey could finally be over... and the real journey is about to begin!

**New poll**
So tell me... What are your guesses for our wee one?!
* Province?
* Male or Female?
* Age?
(leave your answer in Comments... if you comment as "Anonymous" - make sure you put your name at the end of your comment so I know who you are!!!)

My Guesses are:
* Guangdong
* Female
* 10 months
Finally - they say a picture says a thousand words... what do you think this picture is saying?

Ok, I am adding my voice to the Jiangxi crowd, and 9 months too. As for the puppies, it is quite plain that they are thinking you are the MEANEST Mummy in the world for not letting two such pathetic looking creatures inside....

Your wait is almost to an end.

We got our referal Jan 3 2007. We missed the one in Dec by 2 days. I remember it was hard getting through the holidays.

If you do have to wait just remember that you are so close and soon, very soon you will se the picture of your child.

Our daughter is from Hunan. So, I am rooting for a Spicy Girl.
