WAITING FOR THE TA

Still no real word on the TA....

a few inklings that we will know within a week or so, but nothing concrete. There is comfort in knowing other agencies and families are getting TA's. This media caused Swine flu pandemic did not affect the TA's.

If indeed it affected referrals, I am heartbroken for those next up waiting March families. I have no pathetic words like "you will forget the pain when you see your child's face" or "if not for this long wait, you would not be given the child you were mean to have"... these words are not comfort for those who wait.

All I can offer is a {{{HUGE HUG}}} with understanding and hope.

The hugs are appreciated. Hopefully not necessary, but definitely appreciated. There'll be a whole lot of celebrating when your TA does arrive.

So sorry you've had to deal with this. I sure hope your TA comes soon and that it doesn't affect the people waiting for referrals.

Hoping your TA arrives soon. How neat to know how close you are!!

thanks for your hugs of encouragement friend. Felt them way up here! It will be interesting to see where referrals get to this month. In my heart the 13th is expected, 14th would be great and beyond that gravy! Who knows?? Even one day can make a HUGE difference in when I'll anticipate receiving Hannah's referral so this will be a pivitol month.

Praying for you as you await your TA!
