Congrats on 13!

I think everyone is feeling a little blue. I know I am. It will get better. It has to.

Happy 13 Month LID-iversary!

I am sticking my head in the sand. Not so positive so this is the best solution to avoid saying bad words.

Keep smilin!

13 DOWN! Look at how far you have come! I know there are not any words I can say to help... this is one rollercoaster ride and at times feels like more than you can bare...... But I promise you when you hold Tate in your arms it truely will all melt away.... IT WILL HAPPEN.
I am very serious when I say I have dubbed March of the Penguins as the official adoption saga... if you haven't seen it you must because you dear Lisa are a PENGUIN! and they are incredible, tough little birds!

Please forgive me Lisa, I started thinking about my comment and I remembered when I was down waiting for Hannah. I didn't mean to be insensitive... You have every right to be angry, hurt, afraid,the entire spectrum of emotions that sometimes you even feel at once on this journey. Please forgive me if I added to your anguish by telling you it will all melt away...... sometimes you just need to grieve!

Happy 13th! I know this week has been a bummer with the 2 day referrals but hang in there! You're one day closer (whatever that means these days.)

Happy 13th sweetie, hopefully there are now more months behind you than ahead of you. So, so sorry the referral wait time is dragging out so agonizingly. It's just heartbreaking. Sending huge hugs.

Donna & Joe said...

I'm right there with you, Lisa. The latest referral rumors just suck...I can't even think of a better word for it.

I wish I would have known when we first submitted our adoption application that we were signing on for the roller coaster ride of a life time. Silly me actually thought we would submit our paperwork, get busy with the nursery and buying all kinds of fun stuff, then 8 months later we would fly off to China to get our daughter. Sounds wonderful, doesn't it?

You've got to hang tuff with me...Tate and Lauren will be SO totally worth all this frustration.

Im new to the Chinese adoption wait--my DTC was in March and still waiting on the official LID so Im not sure what the 13 is about. Can you please shed some light?

Lisa~~ said...

The wait and referals, it just stinks all around. Congrats on making it to 13 months.

Andrew & Stephanie said...

Happy 13 behind you.... it gets tiring counting doesn't it? Keep you chin up! I too feel your pain!

Donna said...

Congrats on making it 13 months with your sanity intact!
