On Thursday I emailed our contact person at CHSFS and asked her if it was a possibility that we would get a referral in April. To my surprise, she said that an April referral IS possible, although, it would be the end of April at the earliest. Her answer surprised me because I fully expected her to say "I just don't know!" Right now the people at the top of 'the list' submitted a dossier in mid July (reminder, we are August 8).
So far nobody to my knowledge has had to wait a full 9 months for a referral...but...who knows, maybe we'll be the first! And just to warn anyone out there, please don't say "Oh! It's just like a pregnancy! 9 months!" because it isn't AT ALL like a pregnancy. We started this process over a year ago, and when we get our referral we still have a few more months of waiting.
In summary, I think we can realistically say we can count down in weeks rather than months! Stay tuned!
