Watching Grass Grow

UPDATE: JULY 7TH 2008
The grass is taller. Referrals have landed in Europe. And we are all holding our breath for our own referral news hopefully, we will all breath normally by the end of this exciting day.

Yes! While we are waiting for our referral that did not come on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and most like not tomorrow either and even if it did show up on Friday the 4th of July, no one at our adoption agency would even be there to sign for it; it means that one week will pass and we are still waiting. ACK! So in the interim, while we try to act normal, as if one of the most important moments in our life is not eminently upon us, what do we do with our time? Watch the grass grow? Why yes as a matter of fact we are! Every 20 to 30 minutes (when we are at home and not at sleep) we check to see how our grass is doing. We finally seeded a new lawn the weekend before last and it is amazing how quickly it grows; a blanket of emerald velvet covering our soil; transforming our barren yard into a welcoming, beckoning yard. A place for our daughter, we have yet to meet, run around and squeal in. Can't wait! We hope to know by Monday.

Hey Miss Jennifer....I can hear your pain. Just know that I hear you and I promise, if you keep chasing your tail you will catch it. Then what?
