Waiting, Waiting and Waiting some more.


“Life is all about timing... the unreachable becomes reachable, the unavailable become available, the unattainable... attainable. Have the patience, wait it out It's all about timing.”

So, I have had a rough week. I am not sure why, but I am feeling really down. I am a person that makes things happen. Right now everything is out of my control completely. Which in reality that is probably the way my life is going to go from now on. It has been about 3 weeks since my paperwork went out to Greenbsorro for approval. I ordered my 20 photo profiles that need to be shipped up there as well. They get here Tuesday. Other than that nothing is going on...Alex took a little break from painting. She should start up again this week. That will keep my mind off things as well.

We had new neighbors move in a couple weeks ago and they are wonderful, they have 3 kids, a son who is 12, and 2 daughters that are 10 & 8. They are really some fabulous kids. I am glad they have moved in next door, so when we get our daughter there are really nice kids for her to be friends with.  I enjoy spending time with them as well.

I am reading a lot of books on adoption and raising adopted children. Today I was actually reading about the parallels pregnancy and adoption. How the process of adoption is the equivalent of labor. The author actually refers to it as the labor pains of adoption. It is necessary to have these pains to receive the blessing of the child. I was needing to read that.

Well, I am going to wrap this up and with it I will wrap up this little funk that I am in. I think I need to get into a project or something. Maybe I will paint her dresser or something. If I feel like i doing something that gets me closer to her being here than I will feel better.
