Waiting, waiting, waiting

For the past 6 months, I feel like all Justin and I have done is wait. We waited for our agency to get their license to work in Vietnam, we waited for our social worker to do our homestudy, we waited for the doctor to do our physicals, we waited for our immigration approval to come in the mail, we waited for our documents to get certified, etc. I guess you get the picture. Now it is getting even worse. Now we are just waiting for a phone call from our agency saying that they have found our daughter. This is so so so so so so so hard for me. I am not a patient person. I am ansy all of the time. I like to feel in control. None of those things mix well with adoption. I am learning to get better with each day though. I am learning a lot from this whole process, which is definately a good thing. I just wish that the day would hurry up and come where we are no longer waiting. That day will not be until we are back home with Lucy. I am keeping this blog to be able to vent and to share our experience with our friends and family. I hope you enjoy!

Hey, we started the process at exactly the same time! How cool! I hope we finish it together too. And soon, might I add. :-) I absolutely hate the waiting. I always felt mostly busy with things to do in the future that gave me a feeling of productivity. Now - not so much. All that is left is the waiting and I actually miss the paperchase! Guess I could always start the paperchase for the next one now! haha

Hi, my friend Kristen D. sent me the link to your page... (I work with her at the American Cancer Society). Your story is gorgeous and inspiring. My husband are considering adoption right now because of a health condition I have that may put myself and our future baby at risk. I just want to thank you for such an uplifiting, candid look into y'alls lives. Lucy is just beyond words. Your family seems so lovely and supportive too. I wish you all the best throughout your lives, and thank you. We'll surely think of you while we go through our long process. We're thinking about getting it started at the beginning of '08. Be well, God Bless. ~Randi
