LID Count Down Club or Is That Up?

ImageChef.com - Custom comment codes for MySpace, Hi5, Friendster and more

As each month washes over us, we work hard to find a sense of comfort in knowing we must be drawing closer in bringing this particular ritual to an end. The posting of the number of months since your LID is an unwritten rule that must be followed. To be sure, it's a bittersweet task. Happy for another month having slipped by in this (shared) agonizingly slow journey to our little ones. Sad because one more month has slipped by without the little one.

For now.
Do not become overwhelmed by "The Wait" for the time will come when each of us will no longer find ourselves in the exclusive LID Count Down Club.
Eventually. Just not yet.

So until that time, in keeping with adoption land protocol, we proudly perform our duty and proclaim our LID anniversary. And we'll be back next month. Same time. Same day. In announcing our 23rd.

It is after all, Tradition...

:) Peace (:

Love how you posted this one, made me smile big- like imagining the day I'm no longer a member of the LID CDC. Happy 22. I swear you were JUST 21, this month flew for me!

It's a great tradition but one I have to agree with i-Con on and am looking forward to breaking.

I do remember about 10 months ago, swearing I would not join this tradition. That I was going to forget we were even adopting... HA! How quickly my moods change!

22 closer to your sweet Alyzabeth An... and so much closer to no more LID counting!!!

Alyson & Ford,

Congrats on 22 months...we are right behind you! Seems SO close, but yet SO far. I know our day is coming though and that's what keeps me going.

Hey, by the way, would you guys like a new header for your blog? I noticed you admiring the one I did for Izzie (the furbaby). Just give me the word and it's as good as done.

Donna :)

Alyson & Ford said...

Wow, a new header? I have been asking DH when we can upgrade the "look" (of course, neither of us knows how).
Hopefully DH will get back to you!!
Thanks!

Alyson
