I know that we just started this process, but I feel like I've been waiting forever. I could possibly have another 12 months to wait!! What can I do to pass the time??

Oh Mindy! I feel for you! I was just reading that the wait from DTC to referral had crept up to 12-13 months. I remember when we adopted Jaden, the wait was 14 months when we submitted our dossier, but then slowly dropped while we waited, so we got her referral at 9 months after DTC. I hope the wait will come back down while you are waiting as well.

Have you thought of doing a 100 good wishes quilt while you wait? It's a fun tradition and definitely helps pass the time. Let me know if you need details about it, I think there's even a Yahoo group specifically for people wanting to exchange quilt squares.
