Waiting for Referral - A Wild Ride
People waiting for news of referrals liken the wait to a rollercoaster ride. It truly IS a rollercoaster ride. One day you are down because you are sure you will not receive your referral in this batch. The next day the rumor mill starts churning and you are feeling confident and positive that this is your month and up, up, up you go again.
Adoption from China, on many fronts, is a rather stable process. The wait is when the craziness starts. Each and every month when it is time for referrals to arrive it gets crazy. The highs and lows are unbelievable. This month, for us, has been chock full of highs and lows.
Honestly, as crazy as it can be around this time. I LOVE THE RIDE! I love knowing that at the end of this whirlwind, my daughter will be home, in my arms, forever.
She is so worth the ride!
Hold on tight! It is going to be a bumpy one!!
