Tired of Waiting

Today has been a hard day. I feel like I'm tired of waiting, tired of wishing my phone would ring. I want to hear those words again "we have a baby for you." I want to hear those words & know this is OUR LP!

I feel like I have done nothing but put on this brave, strong, 'this wait isn't getting to me' face & I just cannot do it today.

My heart hurts! I want to be a mom, I want to know if LP is a boy or a girl. I want to be able to stop putting things on hold in our lives as we sit here & wait. I just want our baby home. I want to go for walks & bike rides & play at the park. I want to see LP & Kiso...I am ready.

I know when it comes down to it, our wait has not been that long, however we have already been in the adoption process for going on 3 years & I consider all of that somewhat of a wait.

I know I have to be patient. I know me getting upset is not going to bring LP to us any sooner....but today, I just needed to cry. I needed to be sad.


  1. YES.. i know EXACTLY what you mean...hugs and love in the meantime xoxo lis

  2. Your LP will be here soon and you will know the wait was worth it! Not all that comforting now, I know, but it's all we've got :) In the meantime, you're totally allowed to be frustrated.

  3. Unfortunately, I can relate to the PCOS and the adoption wait. It's hard and painful. And, although I did finally become a mom, my heart remembers it too well, especially making decisions about where to live, what to drive, etc. all with our absent child in mind. I would like to add you to my list of waiting families being prayed for at I hope you receive good news soon.

  4. Patience shmacience! Be sad! Be frustrated! You're allowed. (hugs) and today I'll be hopeful for you :)

  5. There is no shame in crying - cry away! Let out that anger, frustration, sadness and hurt! Get your heart ready for your LP - who will come at just the right moment.

  6. I'll echo everyone else: it's okay to cry! It's okay to be impatient! You're human, not a robot. :) I'm so hopeful that you will get good news soon, and that LP will be in your arms shortly after that. You deserve it. <3

  7. Its excruciating, believe me. I had many weeks/days just like this. I don't know what makes it easier. Hopefully, since you have had one referral already that means LP is close to finding you!
