Still Waiting

Well, we are still in a state of waiting to hear what LID's will be included in this month's referrals. It has been a long month so far. I am a little resigned to the fact that we just won't know for another week and we really need to prepare for our wait to be another month long.

It is amazing to think we started this process 20 months ago.. Heck..almost 21 months ago. In some ways it seems like we have been working towards this adoption forever. In other ways, it just doesn't feel real anymore.

We have been getting a lot done around the house. We have worked in the nursery, cleaned the carpets, painted, hung pictures, bought furniture... but it almost feels like just going through the motions.

I know once we have Miss Madeline's picture in front of us the reality will be powerful. Right now I just don't know what to think. Maybe part of me is just bracing for a disappointment this month.

Small little gift
Waiting, yet not realizing
Meaning so much to strangers
Sleep safe and secure
Find comfort and solace
Life will change soon
Family awaiting
