Please Wait

Just like when you try to call anywhere & you hear, please wait...that is where my life is right now. One big, please wait!

It's hard not to know when we will get the call about LP, it is hard not to know how to plan for future things this year, because can we go? Can we do this or that? Will they call about LP?

So officially, I feel like we are just waiting...waiting & wishing.

It's hard to believe that we have been on this journey for over 2 years at this point. So we have been doing a lot of waiting up to this point. Wait to find an agency, wait to do our homestudy, wait for paperwork to be okay'ed, etc. But now, here we are, in one of the hardest waits.

Do I think this will be the hardest wait we will have still? Oh no! I think the worst wait will be once LP has a face, a name....& we are waiting to go to Colombia.

What did you do to pass time during the wait? Did you still go on trips or not? We are going on our cruise in March, but that is it, anything else makes me nervous! Advice is welcomed!


  1. Once we were approved thru our agency I went through the same thing. We ended up taking trips but not planning them too far in advance. It's difficult to wait!

  2. This last wait has to be so hard! I think small trips might help - ones that you don't have to plan too far in advance, but just say, let's take a long weekend to NYC or Chicago? Just an idea!

    Hope you won't be waiting long!

  3. what i did during our wait: cry, eat, whine, complain, cry. what i wish i did during our wait: organize, clean, finish cb's lifebook, and spend more intentional time with friends and family!

  4. I truly can't imagine how difficult- yet exciting- this particular wait must be.

    I vote for going on short trips!

  5. I hope you don't have to wait too long! With the IF treatments I feel like I'm always waiting on something as well, and I'm trying to find more hobbies to keep my mind busy- school, yoga, etc.. Good luck, can't wait for your good news.

  6. The waiting is getting to us too. I've heard it's harder after you get the referral, but I figured time would pass somewhat more quickly as we frantically try to get everything ready. Right now it's hard to get motivated to do that stuff. I'm trying to organize closets, do busy work. I'm not too good at getting off the couch today though. Lol.
