A few steps further in the journey

I know we take a few steps every day in the journey to our little one. But only once a month or so do we pass a signpost that suggests how much longer this journey may be. Referrals are arriving for those logged in through October 24, 2005. That leaves 290 login days ahead of us.
While, I am so thrilled for those who will get "the call" in the coming days, I can't help but reflect on what this means for our journey. Thirty-some days since the last referrals, and only eleven days referred. If 11 days are referred each month, it will take an additional 27 months to get to us. I do hope that more days will be referred in coming months, but there is no way to know for sure. Maybe it's time to prepare ourselves that this journey may take much longer than we thought.

I have felt this reality creeping up on me - this wait will get easier for me once I will actually admit the reality - it's just so hard to do.

I just wanted to let you know as well - that I, your loser Secret Pal am FINALLY sending you your Feb. gift - I am such a loser! So Sorry!

Your Fireflies Secret Pal!

The recent referrals were certainly hard to take. Luckily there are people out there that totally understand your feelings.

The thoughts that you shared at First Friday last week were so eloquent. I appreciated your sharing.

Hang in there,
