Not A Good Day...

Three families with our adoption agency got their clearance to travel today. I am trying so hard to be happy for them. I really am. But all I did was cry. We've been waiting a month longer than them to travel, but they get to go before us. I am just so, so tired. I am tired of waiting and I am tired of having what little hope I have left in me smashed all over the floor. It just plain stinks. Zenabu's case isn't even scheduled for court for another week, and I really have no guarantees it will go through then. What's a mom to do?

I know it's hard to wait, but unless I'm wrong about this, didn't you get your referral in only a week???? Honestly, many people- most, in fact- have waited a lot longer for their referrals and travel dates!!

It is easy to be "brave" when you don't have to sign your name to something... :(

Please know that many people know what you mean and what you are going through. I myself am not an adoptive parent (we would like to in the future) so I can only speak from the aspect of a bio parent...but one who has suffered through years of treatments for infertility, multiple miscarriages etc.

I personally would think that after having a referral would be harder than before... you have a face and a name to love and well... Enough said there...

Please know that everyone is praying that your travel date is given out soon, so you can finally meet your child for real :)
