The Waiting Game

Wednesday, February 23, 2011
I have a feeling there is going to be a lot of waiting in our future. We are currently waiting on DH's doctor to fill out his medical form for the agency stating that his prognosis is excellent and he's perfectly capable of parenting a child. DH dropped it off yesterday. I'm hoping it will be ready by tomorrow. Our agency application is filled out and ready to go, just need that form before we send it. Once the application is mailed, we'll schedule our first meeting with the agency's social worker and hopefully get our homestudy underway. I am so ready to be officially waiting!!!!!!!! 

Looking back over the past few months, each time we have had to postpone going forward with the adoption, we have learned an important lesson that we can carry on to our future child/children. Funny how that happens, isn't it? Although I hate that we have endured so much, I am very thankful for where it has brought us today. It's made us better people. I see that now. Our Josey had a plan for her short life and she's made a huge difference in her parents' lives, the kind of difference only a child can make. She was definitely "meant to be" ours. :)


  1. I love your positive outlook. It's really refreshing and very difficult to do considering the circumstances you have gone through.

  2. What a lovely positive way to look at your situation. It must help you cope with all the disappointments and delays when you can have such a good attitude.

    How exciting to be adopting. My hubby has an adopted baby sister from China. She is gorgeous.

    I think we may not be allowed to adopt as I have muscular dystrophy which is progressive (that is why we are doing IVF with PGD). We are trying to have a second healthy baby.

    Hope you don't have to wait much longer.

  3. I agree with B. Wilson...your positive spin on everything that has happened is so refreshing. I'm rooting for you and will keep you in my daily thoughts.
