I will try my hardest not to post rumors on this blog. ON that note, I hope referrals come this week. This is a fun part of the month for me (im sure once my wait is almost over, it wont be).. Reading other blogs has helped me pass the time. As you can tell, I added a lot more to my blogroll last night at work.. I still need to clean it up, but there is a lot to read.

We are looking forward to our garage sale and getting the house ready. We have so much time ahead of us, we are really not in a hurry.
I did add the latest quilt square to the blog..Check out the link to the right. Collecting the squares will be another way of keeping me preoccupied.


I hope. I pray. I know that our baby girl will be waiting for us one day. This wait will end. I have not gotten discouraged by what I have read. I will not post the different guesses or estimates.. I know our wait is long and could get longer, but we have been given this time!!!!!

It's wonderful that you have such a good attitude about the wait. I will try to follow your lead! I'm struggling a bit with our wait for daughter #2 ...

It's nice to read how postive you are about the wait - I try to be but there are days it just plain stinks!

Amy & Michael,
After 2 years (paper chase, agency approval, DTC, LID & release from the review room) we are encouraged by your faith & patience. Keep it up. Although the wait can be unbearable, (it's easy for ME to say) .... God does NOT make mistakes. Apparently, the child He has in mind for our 2 families is in His plan and He will reveal that plan to us at the proper time. We are encouraged by your hearts for adoption.
And now for my take on the 'rumor' sites - I hit on them for entertainment purposes (especially that gal - no names - who thinks she's the Oprah of Chinese adoptions). I'm happy for those blog administrators who are off the streets and out of trouble - but I take NO stock in their crystal ball predictions no matter how close they are to accuracy. There's no telling what's happening over there in China..... The same goes for several of those Yahoo groups which I've dropped.
"Delight yourself (also) in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart." from Psalms 37 - I tend to just trust in His ways for our journey. It gets me through a lot of the anxiety ...and keeps me out of trouble
Blessings to you,
Don & Be

Thank you again...!!!

You have such a great attitude and amazing faith. Thank you for sharing that! I try to be positive but that is easier some days than others. But referral times are always exciting...meaning we are a couple of baby steps closer to our girl.
We are joining you in prayer for this whole process.

Angie

Hi Amy --

I just wanted to wish you well on your upcoming garage sale. I know that you asked for pointers and I think the best one I can pass along to you is put as big of a sign as possible in your yard to attract customers. Todd and I created a 4' x 4' sign about 7' high with flags on each side and I can't tell you the number of people that stopped and purchased b/c of the sign alone. Our sale was a great success, and although it was a lot of work we had a great time with it. I wish you the best of luck and hope it helps boost your adoption fund.

Have a great night :-)
