Sing it Guy!



*EDIT:* Well... it's 4:44pm... I think we can safely assume, we will not be hearing anything today. I'm completely bummed. WHAT IS TAKING SO FLIPPIN LONG?!!! It's the friggin 15th for pete sake!!! I've now starting having horrible thoughts, that they got our LID wrong, and we WON'T be seeing Mini before Christmas? I'm sure our family and friends think we're complete dipsticks. First I told them, we'd know the first week of the month. Nope. No-one heard anything til about 10th of Dec. So then I'm telling people, late in the week - or early the following week... still nothing. I swear, its the whole uncertainity that is making me feel ill.... I just wish we SOME information? Tasmania has received their allocations... as far as I know New South Wales is still waiting, like us. Could our LID be wrong?

Gosh LeeAnne, talk about make me cry. THIS SONG is the one we have used on our handover footage when we got Maya. We have 8 mins of footage that we put to this song and I'll stand by You. Makes me cry every time and its the perfect song to describe adoption. Have I shown you this yet??
Have you heard anything yet???

Man oh man oh man....my gut is turning with you.

During our wait, the hardest thing wasn't that I wanted "A" child and had to wait, it was more about feeling that "my" child was out there and I couldn't be with them. Literally felt like being seperated from one of your children, because it is!
Even when you see your precious child and still can't get to them yet, one of the best things that helped me was to ask God to use that time to really, really prepare JJ's heart for us, so he felt completely at home in our arms. It was still excruciating but felt like the wait had a purpose.
Soon my dear, very soon, you will see that little face that will bring you even closer to the little one you already love.

I can't believe that can't at least tell you that they HAVE your referral....I don't think that's too much to ask. I'm so sorry you continue to wait. We want to see Mini!!!!!

no way - your LID isn't wrong.
But Lord have mercy - what is taking so long - I keep checking your blog, afraid that my Google Reader isn't picking up a new post or something.
A ton of people are on the edge of their seats waiting with you!!
Hugs dear heart!

I'm a long term lurker, but just had to post today. I'm checking daily for updates....can only imagine how you are feeling....I bet you are just too scared to let yourself go and be totally exicited... So unfair that they can't just tell you NOW. Hang in there....time does move and it won't be long until you see your first picture of your newest family member.

Linda said...

Come on news!!!!!!!! This is painful.

Yes, I was worried people though I was imagining the adoption many times along the way, but especially in the last two months. I figured they were thinking, "Sure, you're going to hear soon, right!"
