6 months...

We've been waiting six months since I first saw your sweet picture baby girl, six months since I knew you were my daughter, six months of our house feeling empty, six months of my arms waiting to hold you, six months of happiness and tears and heartbreak, six months of waiting. How I hope we only have a few months left.

Unfortunately we received bad news from our agency last week. We didn't make the cut off for the last batch of EP's to be submitted. What this means is we will still be waiting an additional few weeks to travel. It doesn't look like I will be holding sweet baby girl on her birthday after all. I really struggled with this at first but I am finding a peaceful place again. Trying to remember that an all knowing all good God is in control of all things. So patiently I wait.....

You know how much I wish for good news for you---keeping you in my thoughts and prayers, my friend. You are stronger than you know---you've proven that already.

Uggh. So hard to hear of more delays. I'm glad you are finding peace with it, but I sure hope it happens soon...

Hang in there. Praying that you will be going to pick up your cutie pie very soon. It's got to be soon. I went on your private blog and I still can't believe how stinkin' cute your little girl is! MAN, that hair! Hoping for good news very soon!

It's a tough part of this process....horrible really there's no denying it. But, this little girl like all the other deserve to move onto the best part of their lives and to begin the healing process. Their losses have been great and numerous but their gains are even greater with a forever family. You will be there for her and together the healing will begin and make you family.
