The Bat Signal

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.

Maybe they need a link to the grandparents to make sure the message gets across - can we really trust bat mail?! :) Have a fabulous and most of all relaxing trip enjoying each other and then come back ready to travel around the world to be united with your Baby Bean!

There is nothing like a trip to bring on the referral! (I was in OR when we got the call and I've heard about 1,000 other stories just like that.) WE NEED SOME REFERRALS!!! I hope yours is SOON and I hope you have a wonderful time in Mexico!

I can't wait for your vacation! I'm going to live vicariously through you-we're so busy this next month or so. :(

Anyhow, the bat signal thing is hysterical!

I told everyone "don't worry, when you know-you'll hear me screaming!".
They all laugh-but, I'm only half kidding. :-\
