One more down, Hopefully only a few to go

Another week of waiting for the approval has come and gone. I know to some this waiting is nothing compared to the wait they have waited to see their childs face but I feel this wait is horrible, I feel like this wait is putting my adoption on hold. I'm not saying the wait in Ethiopia will be easier, but at least the end result will be a baby, it won't be a simple letter saying that the gov. of Ont. feels we are good enough people to be parents. I just want the red tape part to be over so that I can as well be officially expecting. How will I deal with the long wait for a referral, if I can't deal with the short wait, you may ask? Well i'm not sure but hopefully somewhat better than I'm dealing with this wait. The days and weeks are so sloooooowwwww. I just want Kaysen home. I know some have been waiting much longer, I just feel like i've been waiting 4 years to have a family and now I have to wait at least 1-2 more, it's just hard. I'm also turning 32 in 2 weeks and feel like i'm getting old and still don't have my family.....why? why? why? I know to most 32 is not old, but to me it's old to not have my family started. Sorry just a quick vent this morning to allow me to go on and wait the next few weeks.

Waiting is so hard! No matter what stage you are at it seems there is always waiting. I really hope this week is the week you see your provincial approval.

thanks Rana for your support and for listening. I'm praying for your referral soon.

The wait is REALLY hard - I'm still waiting for it to get easier! (no referral yet!) lol

Hang in there Natalie. I won't tell you this part is the longest/hardest wait; but, it is certainly the most nerve racking. All I can say is that when you finally have Kaysen in your arms, all the waiting will instantly become a memory. And if it's any consolation, I turned 35 ten days after our Natalie was placed in my arms; but she makes me feel 25 again!

Thank you all so much. I know I have nothing to complain about compared to all of you but at least you all understand. Thank you.
