Murphys Law

As you know, Murphys Law, plagues me.

Well, it has struck once again... with the "non-arrival" of our allocations. No one knows anything. We've had 2 "just be paitent, it'll all be fine" emails, coming from our agency. And sentences like "we have to respect the country that has opened their doors to adoption, and wait til they contact us".


Don't give me pity, and don't you dare say "it'll all happen at the right time or in God's time etc etc"... I don't blame God, I don't doubt His power... I blame incompetent people.



So, don't bother checking back to see "the joy of our lives", as I doubt we'll be seeing or hearing anything til well within the new year.... that is if they ever find our file (which cc^^ has reassured our agency, it has not lost)

Whatever.

(((HUG)))

Pug Mama said...

no, you are not going to get the whole "it all happens for a reason" line from me.
This is COMPLETE bull sh*t.
I am so sorry.

prechrswife said...

Oh, no! I just saw your comment on RQ and had to jump over here for the "rest of the story." :-( (And for the record, the word verification that just came up for me is "pains"--rather appropriate at the moment...)

Ava's family said...

I also am not going to feed you that crap about it all happening for a reason. If it smells like crap....It's crap. Hugs. I'm so sorry.

Sam said...

That really sucks...

I am a long time reader but I haven't commented. UGH this just makes me want to scream, obviously I can not even imagine how it must make you feel. You know what is also really annoying? "It's worth the wait!" I mean, I'm sure you know that already, that's why you're still waiting! Again, I'm so sorry this happened and I'm definitely thinking of you..

TubaDad said...

This really sucks. I hope it all gets worked out quickly.

sea star said...

I feel so horrible for you. It just seems like another bad twist in this long journey. I can only imagine. Hugs to you.

Elisa ( FC Monsters) said...

This just fricken plain sucks...be mad be very mad...that's now I would feel.


Hugs, Elisa.x

rubyiscoming said...

Sweets, I'm soooo thinking of you. This definitely calls for profanity. And you are right - blame the people.

Hugs to you.

Tash said...

I don't even know what to say sweetie. I can't imagine what this has put you and the family through. No, there will be no "just be patient" comments from me either....It well and truly sucks, and if I were in your shoes I would be ranting and raving and screaming and crying at the unfairness of it all. I am so scared that something like this is going to happen to us - that has ben my fear from the day we sent our file to China - and it's that fear that is stopping me from getting excited even though we are so close (well, apparently so close!!). I have my fingers crossed for a January (or earlier) referral for you, and for some decent friggin information from the department....Ooh how I LOATHE Australian adoption departments right now!!!!!!!!

All of that being said, I can't wait to help you celebrate your referral when it comes.

I wish I could cross the Ocean and give you a big old hug. Just know that someone in the USA is praying for you during this most exasperating time. God bless you and give you peace as you wait!

One more painful bump in the journey. We would scream with you if we could.

Rocío said...

Hi, First I would like to apologize if my messages hurt you. The only reason to write to you was to give all the information I had about what was happening with the referals in Spain. My wish was to help more than anything because I know this is a hard journey but if there was something I said believe I´m so sorry..

The last news I have is that referals have left China and areir way.

I wish you all the best. Rocío

This is my last message but I would like to give you

Special K said...

If airfare wasn't so damn expensive, I'd hop a plane with a bottle of tequila and you get you sloppy drunk on margaritas. It always works for me. LOL!

But seriously... this sucks. Just no other way to say it.

Mike and Rhonda said...

Oh my gosh! I am so sorry....you must be in so much emotional pain. I have learned from everything that happen to us and just to say...I am so very sorry that this has happen.

Thinking of you!

Well all I can say is eat chocolate and hug those precious kids of yours! This does suck big time and as so many have said extremely unfair! Here is hoping your SWer will make arrangements for you over the holiday period if and when your referral turns up!
We have friends who had delays because theirs went to Aussie rather than NZ!
