Breathe deep


we thought that we would be on the waiting list by now. BUT… this process is LONG! Many of our expectations have not been met, nor do we feel even adequate to be sending in this paperwork to our agency. Our life is full and prioritizing just seems to get harder and harder every day. This blog is almost embarrassing to write because the last time we “spoke”, we had such high hopes of being on the waiting list by now. Well… as it turns out, we still are waiting on a few documents. I have to just say THIS IS HARD! Not in a defeated way, but its just different than we expected.

Drew and I have been working hard to limit our commitments and simplify life. It would be easy to just blame our wait on other people, but truthfully at this point, we are waiting because we don’t have time to do what it is that we need to do. Today we need to squeeze in a call to the secretary of state, a notary appointment, a trip to my work to pick up a document and then go downtown to get it all State certified. Not to mention, the rest of life, which just seems to take precedence so often. We are so people oriented that many times we just do what’s right it front of us. Unfortunately our adoption papers just lie in the back room covered by half finished projects. We desperately want to be on top of things and say that we have done everything possible to expedite this process, but it’s not true. I’m sure that many of you can relate… but it doesn’t really bring our child home any sooner. I miss them and I don’t even know them. The way we bring that sweet baby home is not easy for care free, people loving, blondes like us…

Today we just need to take a deep breath, and keep pressing on.
