Life is Very Hard

Today has been one of the most difficult days of my life thus far. The person in line behind us (before we had to put our adoption on hold) got her referral today. I am genuinely happy for her and her family. She is an absolutely wonderful lady and if I would want anyone to get a referral besides us, it would be her. It is still so hard to process.

I KNOW that Lucy is still out there and waiting for us. This is just so hard. I just really did not see this little road block in our future. I wish it was not happening. We are getting help to deal with how this is effecting us. I know that it is helping, but for me, nothing can be fixed fast enough. I just don't understand why this is happening. I really need God to help me with this one.

Oh Kelly, I'm soooooo sorry you are going through this.
The other family adopting (with our agency) in Zeeb's province got their son's dossier approval 2 weeks ago and I know soon they'll get travel approval - and I'm just dreading that.
God must have had a reason that referral had to go to another family... and your child is just not ready to be referred to you yet. But I know that's a lot easier to say in theory than to believe when you are living it. Praying for you.

I'm so sorry you are going through this. I just got a call today from my agency that they had a referral for me. The problem, I switched to their Vietnam program from Guatemala and the Director 'wasn't sure.' I was/am heartbroken. It just hurts to have to wait and hear people around you getting referrals. I will pray for your family tonight. Agian, I'm sorry.

hang in there. It will be hard for a while, you need to be upset right now. You will both get to a place where you can figure it out and I really hope it is soon. And I hope you are as ok as you can be right now.

Kelly,

I've been thinking of you all day. I knew this would be a tough day. I can't imagine how hard this must be. You HAVE to believe that Lucy is still waiting for you to find her. You will get through this.

Take care,
Sarah

Kelly,
I know this is hard but you have to know in your heart that this will all work out in the end. It's just getting there that is the hassle! Keep with it.

You know my heart is broken for you. Be good to you. Let me know if there is *anything* I can do to help, even if it's just a 2am phonecall to sob in my ear. ((((hugs))))

Aw, Kelly, that just stinks. I'm sorry. That has to be so very hard.

Many hugs, and lots of prayers.

This must be a very difficult time and I cannot imagine your pain right now. How very strong of you to be able to be able to be happy for the other person in line. This show a genuine heart. I will be thinking of you during this difficult time.

We were passed up so many times. It doesn't make any sense. It will happen.
