IT IS A VERY LONG WAIT

I would like to share with you a post from a favorite blogger. The Wait is soon to come to a close for us (August could very likely be our month).

I cried when I read this post from one of our favorite bloggers (never met). We have followed so many adoption journey's that at times we feel like we are a part of their lives! 27 months is a VERY long pregnancy (we will probably be at 33 months when we go to China).

Read about her pain; it is different for everyone BUT, some of the same emotions are felt during this journey. No depression or therapy in this house (I can cry at the drop of a hat) but we do share common emotions.
She now has her new daughter and all is well! I don't think anyone who has waited over 12 months will ever forget the pain of The Wait...

The count down continues! 17 days until referral of DD Alyzabeth!! (my best guess anyway).

Alyson, I have tears flowing right now after reading her post about the "wait". I can SO relate to so many things she said. It always makes me feel a little bit better to know that others understand this pain.

Come on referrals!!! I can't wait to see Alyzabeth!
