An Honest Moment...

So, I am going to post an honest feeling I have been having, but I don't say it out loud too much.

I'm getting impatient. I guess deep down, I thought we would have our referral by now. Our dossier has been in Ethiopia since end of January 2008, and from that point they say the wait time to get a referral (which is adoption wording for our child), is between 8-14 months. Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, May, June, July, Aug, Sept, Oct, Nov......that's almost 11 months....
Yes, we have mentally geared ourselves up for the 14 month wait, but my heart has gone a little impatient on me the last week or so... I really want it to start to move quicker. Unfortunately, there is not much we can do about it. We can just put our cares in the hands of our Father, and pray to Him for a speedy process, and to give me patience. Lord....please, please give me patience today. I really want news about our daughter soon. Please calm my anxious heart.

But anyhow, I'm not a person who loves to share my inner secrets of my heart very often, so that's as honest as I'm getting....for right now.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! And I well understand the emotions you describe in this post. With my agency I was told they hadn't had families wait longer than 5 months...and I ended up waiting 8 1/2, which is still short compared to the other agency timelines, but 3 1/2 months longer than what my heart was prepared for. That sucked. I was nearly a basket case by the end...and I would hear these people say "you will forget this pain" and I thought, yeah right. But much to my surprise, the angst does fade away- even before our little ones are home.

Nonetheless, where you are is in a hard place, and know that there are many people out here who understand!

Thanks for stopping by my blog too!

I can totally relate - we are at 12 1/2 months waiting and the thought of waiting another 2 or 3 months to see our little one's face is agonizing!

This waiting is a rollercoaster - we will be so much stronger for it.

I just saw you commented on our blog. Good to know another SK family who is on this crazy ride! Maybe we'll meet up one day.

It took us over 15 months to see our daughter's face. So hard the wait was, but sooooooo WORTH EVERY SECOND of sucky waiting. Keep your eye on the end of the wait!!

I just read your comment on my blog "Life on Mound". Thank you for reading. I popped by your blog as a result and saw "miracle baby". Interesting, as we have a miracle child who is now 5. Would love to chat:

Thanks for stoppping by my blog! I've been waiting for almost 7 months for siblings and now have been told that my wait could be 18-24 months. I just try to remind myself of the reason we are doing this. For me it seems to help but I do have those days that I feel that I can't take it anymore. The blog is a great way to vent and find the support that you need.

I hope you know that you aren't alone.
