We have found out that is not likely we will travel with group 109. Group 109 got their referrals a couple of weeks ago along with 112 priority. We were still hopeful that we would be included in a batch of referrals that is thought to be coming in late January. Kat spoke with our agency yesterday and was told it is 90% likely we will be traveling in May.
We are very disappointed but thankfully Kat had already experienced her emotional meltdown the week prior when some rumors had circulated suggesting that we would not be going in March. We are both coping with the news better today and are trying to rationalize why this is for the best. It is really isn't for the best in our estimation, but what else can you do?
In the meantime, last week we purchased a high chair and put it together and yesterday, we assembled the crib and that felt good, even if it is way premature. The room looks much more complete.
