I sent an email to our CHI adoption consultant today just to make sure she has both of our cell numbers, all of our email addresses, etc... just in case our referral arrives while we're in Mexico this week. I had to laugh at her response:
"Don’t worry, when your referral comes in, we will locate you no matter where you are, send out the national guard if we have to, flares, bat signals……but I’ll call your cells first."
I like the bat signal response enough that I think I'll start using it as my response to colleagues at work when they ask me if there are any updates on our adoption. I usually say something along the lines of, "don't worry, when there's an update TRUST ME you'll know!" But I hadn't ever thought of bat signals before!
Less than 34 hours and we'll be on a plane to Mexico City...I feel more relaxed already.
