CHOICE IS GOOD

I know that there is frenzy going on in the China adoption community about things that are beyond our control. As of recent, it is the fact that the CC** has decided to change their website to not include the information of dates. At first I was numb not knowing how I felt about all of this. Does this lack of information change anything for me as I wait for Tate? NO. Can I do anything about this wait for Tate? NO. I can control how I let this information affect me in my life. I have a choice, and having a choice is good. I choose NOT to feed into this uncertainty and frenzy. I choose to continue in my path of preparing for motherhood. I choose to continue to enjoy my life to revel in the joys of each day. I know that for some, feeling the connection to what is happening at the CC** is a way of feeling attached to their future children. That is their choice and all choices are good. I choose to support whatever means you need to feel that connection. I will be there for you with understanding and comments. As for me, I choose to stay on track with Tate in my horizon.....

I really just wanted to see my little old LID in the box. Other than that I don't think it really means much of anything. I'm sure our agencies with keep us updated (cough!=)

Amen to that sista! Couldn't have said it better myself.

Shannon said...

To be honest- I am actually happy about this. Except it was all that I allowed myself to look at since I gave up the RQ addiction (I gave it up two months ago and it has been sOOOOOO helpful!). Anyway- you're right- there is nothing we can do about it. I too am trying to stay positive. I am sort of at the numb stage and it is helping me through. I am certain TATE will come in 2008!

You go girl!

Way to hang tough during this difficult time. Freaking out won't really change anything except make you crazy.
As someone whos paperwork was logged in 10 days before CC closed for SARS I understand the desire to freak out - ALOT - but your approach is way more productive.

I wish I were half as strong as you are ...and I'm not even waiting! Your attitude and perspective is so admirable.

You go girl! I feel the same way - the box (or lack of) will not change my life.

You've got a fantastic attitude about this...and it's small consolation, but all the waiting will make you an even more fabulous mom!

laurel said...

You are so wise! What a good mama you will make.

Catherine said...

I'm with you friend. Staying positive (most days) and trusting that in God's perfect time Tate and Hannah will enter our lives. Staying the course and preparing for our sweet daughters.

((hugs))...we're going to make it!!
