Our Lifesong matching grant of $3,000 has been fulfilled!!  We did it!!  Or should I say, you did it!!

I received word that our goal has been met!  What a relief!  Finally, some very good news.

To all that donated, I thank you!  From the bottom of my heart, I thank you!!  If I could take you all out to dinner and show my thanks, I truly would!!  But let me just tell you, there are a bunch of you!!  🙂

If you ever want to make a person feel loved, you have.  My family and I feel it more than ever!!  And, we appreciate it more than ever!!

I will focus on that today, the love that I feel from our family and friends because everything else about this adoption is putting me again in the depths of despair!

We have officially been waiting now for over 7 weeks for our LOA.  Ugh!!

As I watch the adoption online boards, there are families that are just now getting their LOA’s and one has been waiting for 150 days!!  That is AWFUL!!  Another family received their LOA after 33 days!!  WHAT??

There truly is no rhyme or reason to why they come as late or as quickly as they do.  It is what it is!!

Well, there is one reason why they come early, it’s a medical expedite.  If your child has special needs that require medical intervention quickly, they can hurry you through the  process.  I am thankful that Peanut does not need medical intervention right now, she just needs her family!  And her family needs her.

So, I will wait.

I will wait for my children’s passports to come in.

I will wait for the ever illusive LOA to show up!!

I will wait because no matter what I do, I cannot make them materialize out of thin air.  (But do not think I haven’t tried!!  I have thought positive all week!!)

I so wish this is where I was waiting!! 🙂

Day 50 of our wait for LOA………………………………..:(
