28

We've been waiting for 28 months now. This LID has found me in a not great place. I've come to the conclusion that this adoption is NEVER going to happen. We're actually further behind today than we were three years ago when we started this whole process. I am THIS close to throwing in the towel.

When we realized we wouldn't have biological children without medical intervention, everyone kept telling us just go and adopt. There are so many children in the world that need a home. Well you know what? There aren't. Because if there were then we still wouldn't be waiting.

I hope this LID finds Michelle and Mark in a better place. Meeting them has been one of the few good things that have come out of this insufferable wait.

I am with you on the doubt of the success of this adoption...Sorry I can't come here and make you feel better - it just isn't in me today.

I am glad they we have both survived this long.

I don't even know what to say. Your wait has been much more difficult that our two waits put together. Thinking of you often and sending you (((hugs))).

28 months down...

(((hugs))) friend. No words...just wish I was there to hug you in person. Praying for you and as much as we tire of hearing the words, truly praying that things do get faster and that China adoptions make a huge swing for the positive. Hoping March's huge month is behind us soon (for more than one reason!) and that due to attrition and increased orphanage fees, we begin to see more referrals per month.

So sorry.

Can ya feel it......holding you close in my heart and squeezing real tight. xo

I'm sorry you're feeling it so hard right now. I remember feeling just that way too and at 36 months I met someone. Yes, it will take longer than that 36 but just try to let the time go (not the paperwork) and see where it takes you. Of course, only you know what will be the right answer for your family and I'm thinking of you.

I am so sorry. I feel exactly the way you do about the whole thing. EXACTLY.

Beth said...

Yep. Sux doesn't it?

I do still believe there are many many children. I believe it is the Fuc#@!*( politicians that keep them from what they deserve.

HUGS and gentle thoughts.

Try to find other reasons to smile. This wait is horrible. Hugs to both of you.

I still believe it will eventually happen for those who hang in there long enough. I feel for all of us, but especially those of you waiting for your first child. Hugs to you.
