A friend of mine and a fellow adoptive mom gave me some good advice tonight.  I'm going to try it out.  It's not usually how I do things, but maybe it will help.

They entered IBESR around the same time we did.  I ask her weekly about their status.  I'm sure she's tired of those emails.  She told me tonight that they expect to be there for 6 months and so if it is shorter then they're excited.

I'm going to try this.  So, I expect us to be in IBESR until ….. October 28th.  WOW – I DO NOT like the way that looks.

If it ends up being longer than this than I'm mad at her for this advice!  YES … you know who you are!!!!!
