This morning Stand-Up Dad and I were talking about all of this and I thought he made a perfect observation. He thought that this part of adoption was like the 'trying to get pregnant' part of adding to your family. Each month you wait to see if this is the month that you can make plans and prepare for the new child. If not this month, maybe the next.
It is very much this way for me. We just keep praying knowing that the wait will not last forever and one day they will be here, swinging and laughing in the sunshine. Oh, I can't wait!
