Yeah, Yeah, I know, why should we be happy about that! Well it sure beats being miserable for having waited this long with nothing to show for it, lol. Well, nothing except another year older and A LOT more gray hair, hahaha.

Honestly, I can't believe we have waited this long. I mean, I would have thought that I would been over the edge by now ( I am, but wont admit to it, deep state of denial). I wish I could say, we will definately have our daughter this date, or definately have a referral by that date, but what I am finding out about this process, is that there is no way to predict what will happen each month. You just have to have a little faith that things will work out the way they were meant to and just go with the flow....

I get asked a lot ( so does Rich) about how the adoption is going. It's so hard to tell people that you just don't know. One thing that I have to keep in mind, is that our family is waiting with us and even though it might seem like Rich and I are going this alone, we aren't really. We so much appreciate all the support we get...
I wish I could be more optimistic about it, but I wish they had done more. We are only 5 months away from November, but it might as well be 5 years.

Ugh, sorry to be such a downer....
