You know you're adopting from China if...

I found this on a "China Sister's" blog and had to share...made me laugh...and cry!

You Might Be Adopting From China If......
~You know that I-600 & I-171 aren't highways.
~You've been expecting a baby for over 3 years.
~You understand that it's 2006 in some parts of the world.
~You've "paid for" 3 citizenships, but never brought anyone into the U.S.
~You know that waiting for China has nothing to do with Dillards or dishes.
~Your homestudy is followed by a number (i.e. #3 or #4).
~You never know how many days next month will have.
~You know that babies come in batches.
~You've been fingerprinted four times, but never committed a crime.
~You automatically assume everyone who is expecting is having a girl.
~You own new clothing in 3 little sizes for all 4 seasons (because you don't know when or how big).
~You look twice when you see a lady bug.
~You're more interested in what will happen in March 2006 than in March 2009.
~You know people who understand when you talk about 2 day months & 5 day months.
~Your due date hasn't changed by days, but by years.
~You know who the Rumor Queen is ... AND ... you don't know who she is.
~You know that forecast doesn't have anything to do with the weather.
~You've waited so long, they re-checked your fingerprints to see if they changed.
~Trying to understand why they're printing you again, you study your own fingerprints and wonder if fingerprints grow wrinkles.
~When you speak of "that time of month" you're talking about CCAA updates & referrals.

And might be adopting from China if...

you love someone you've never met with all your heart.
