on my mind

Okay, as you know I try to stay pretty positive and optimistic about our adoption process! I still am but I feel sad for my friends, family and coworkers when they ask the questions like "So When are you getting your baby?" or "Is that her?" when I am looking at someones blog.
I hate to see their faces when I tell them we have a wait ahead of us but what a wait it will be!
I visited some friends on another floor who introduced me to some cool websites. I will have to share them later!

By the way, it was fun to move families from the Nov 2005 part of my blogroll to the Families that are home and I found another June 2007 family!!!

I know that feeling exactly!! You love that people are excited for you but to have to answer the endless questions can get a bit tiring. When we started the process the wait was 6 months so that what we told everyone but since it has grown so much it has been hard for us to come up with an answer of when our baby will come home.

Keep your chin up and get used to the question because it is only just beginning :)

Hope you are having a good weekend!!

I feel the same way. Sigh. Let's keep positive! :-)

Yup! It is so hard when your friends catch you looking at a child and say to you..."Oh! That will be you soon" and you look at them and say well not as soon as we would like. It gets hard....but we are in it for the long haul.

PS. Love the idea of the marbles in the jar mind if I use your idea?

I know EXACTLY how your feeling! The endless questions are so very hard to explain to some people who are just so curious and it gets a little frustrating having to explain the same thing over and over, i even wanted to type up little notes explaining the process and just give it out to people who asked but i never did =)

Oh Amy...I know exactly what you are going through..

When we were going thorugh Francesca's adoption, I got asked that question about 10xs a day! I wanted to pulled my hair out and is out of our hands & I have no clue! Waiting now for Sofia...I don't get asked that question as much. I think it was because I told everyone right from the beginning that it is going to take about 2 years before we hear anything (I am really hoping that we do hear something by the end of next year, but that is just my wishful thinking, hoping & praying).

I don't know how you keep up with all of us anymore!! The list seems endless doesn't it!! Praying for everyone today! We got word that CCAA has received our LOI for Emily!!! It's a good day!!

I have just started telling people that it will happen when it happens and when it does that they will be the first to know... it seems that this is the only way I can tell them, then I just say that it is basically a waiting game now and red tape. That is all I say. I have gotten to the point where enough is enough... Take care... Felicity
