Sorry I haven't been around much! We were in the process of switching internet providers, which left us with no service for 8...yes 8 whole days. Needless to say, I finished 2 books & remembered what life was like before the world wide web....it was nice, but I missed it. I kept thinking of all these things to blog & of course, by now, the majority of them I can no longer remember.

I have been thinking a lot about the fact that October will be here before too long (how in the world is it already September, in 4 hours) and October means 2 years since we officially started our adoption journey. It's hard to believe it's been 2 years already. Sometimes I feel like it has flown by, we have had so much to do & prepare for LP..our baby shower, etc & other times I am in shock by all that has happened & we still have no baby.

We have been waiting, at this point, longer than we were told it would more than likely take to get our referral & have our Little Pup home in our arms.

I try not to be bothered by pregnant women. I try not to envy those who have gotten referrals & now have babies home with them. I can say I have been VERY good about these feelings...well, until recently...

I found a blog where the family adopted from Colombia & paperwork in, referral received & children home in 12 months...1-2 months!! That is what we were expecting...LP would have been home with us by now. I wouldn't keep saying "this is our last big trip before LP" or "nope, no word, nada, we know nothing."

I am just ready...ready to be a mom, ready to finally have our LP & to stop feeling "jealous."


  1. I hope it happens for you soon! I will be so freaking excited when you finally get that call :)

  2. I continue to pray that your journey to motherhood is near the finish line. I understand the pain of waiting but the end result is so worth it I'm sure. You're in my thoughts friend :)

  3. Oh gosh, do I totally understand this feeling. I had it B-A-D at the end. We started months before cousins/brother in law/nieces got preg. Each announcement hurt, but each birth hurt more. Hard to watch them bring home babies even though we started before them! Nothing can really make it easier. But I will say, that since we've brought LM home, it has made those jealous and yearning days fade well into the background. Until then, here waiting with you!

  4. Ugh. I can't believe it's been two years!!! I am so sorry for that :( Soon I hope!
