You might be adopting from China if...

I'm totally ripping this off from Red Sand since I'm just not feeling bloggy lately. With the rumours (that I've read on other people's blogs since I'm still boycotting RQ) of a ONE day batch, I'm in a really bad funk.

YOU MIGHT BE ADOPTING FROM CHINA IF... know that I-600 & I-171 aren't highways.'ve been expecting a baby for over 3 years. understand that it's 2006 in some parts of the world.'ve "paid for" 3 citizenships, but never brought anyone into the U.S. know that waiting for China has nothing to do with Dillards or dishes

...your homestudy is followed by a number (i.e. #3 or #4) never know how many days next month will have know that babies come in batches've been fingerprinted four times, but never committed a crime automatically assume everyone who is expecting is having a girl own new clothing in 3 little sizes for all 4 seasons (because you don't know when or how big) look twice when you see a lady bug're more interested in what will happen in March 2006 than in March 2009 know people who understand when you talk about 2 day months & 5 day months

...your due date hasn't changed by days, but by years know who the Rumor Queen is ... AND ... you don't know who she is know that forecast doesn't have anything to do with the weather've waited so long, they re-checked your fingerprints to see if they changed

...trying to understand why they're printing you again, you study your own fingerprints and wonder if fingerprints grow wrinkles

...when you speak of "that time of month" you're talking about CCAA updates & referrals

You might be adopting from China if you love someone you've never met with all your heart.

Amen to that. All of it.

I have been boycotting RQ for well over a year and a half now. Life is better for me(and my husband) that way!

Love the list, at least it gives some humor to all that you go through.
Hoping for speedy referrals this month!

One day, I hope at least, we will be able to forget some of the craziness that this long wait has made us endure.
