Waiting is never easy!
Today has been a day of mixed emotions and frustration! Maybe it is being stuck inside with no way out of our drive way from the blizzard. Maybe IM just being too sesitive. Maybe Im just a mother who is longing to hold her little baby!! I called our agency today because I "heard" hear-say that it will take longer when you have your babies escorted here. THis definetly gave us some concern. Our agency said they have that planned way in advance, and it does not take longer. I told them if it does take longer we will make it work to fly there. They assured me it does not. No one really understands unless you are going through this same thing really how difficult this wait really is especially after you have your child's photo. From day one when your paper work goes into your agency to adopt your heart is longing to meet and be with your child. You pray for Him/Her every single day even though you don't know who your child is! ONce your child's photo is in front of you ...you are totally completly in love...and each day that you have to wait to hold, and nurture your child seems like a complete eternity. I hope this puts light on this subject and that people can be very gentle with this, that they will know and try to understand that this part of the process is a very difficult one indeed! Prayer and support is what we need!
