Same old stuff.....

Yep. We're still here. Waiting. But... it's OK. I will admit, July was ROUGH!!!! I was in a huge funk! My anxiety was off the charts--- I had convinced myself that something terrible was going to happen to me, Mike, the kids, etc... and that's why we weren't getting our referral. Yeah. That was a fun place to be in! UGHHH... But, things are better. We got some information in regards to the length of our wait. And strangely, it has given me great peace! Yes, I still want our referral NOW, but I know that they've been working their tails off for our family, but the right boy just hasn't been ready yet. I still have hopes for the end of the month or early Sept., but right now, I'm OK. And... if we get our referral tomorrow or the end of Sept.-- nothing can happen to our file until the courts reopen anyway, so that's making things easier as well. )

So, there you have it. Not much new on the adoption front. But, we've been having a great summer and are gearing up for back to school. I can't believe I'll have a first grader and a preschooler!!!

I'm glad you got an update. I really feel that Gladney does their best for us and I am sure they are working hard for your little boy.

I am so glad you have found some peace in the waiting. YOUR little boy will be home soon!!

I hope that referral comes soon. He will be the right boy, but I know it's tough. I'm sorry it's been so long.

I just saw your comment on my blog. At Kolfe there is one boy who the boys say is 5 but otherwise all the boys are probably at least 8 or 9.
