NINE

That's right. Nine long months of waiting and no end in sight. Not much to say - not much to report. In fact, blogging used to be fun, motivating, and therapeutic, but lately blogging has become boring and uneventful...there is only so much adoption talk I can blog about. Honestly, I am even having difficulty finding words of encouragement for my fellow waiting bloggers - sorry.

Being silent is a way to survive too, it could be a way to find peace for now, Laura. It is wonderful to see that many babies will meet their families this month, perhaps they are making room for your little one! I will be thinking about you often whether you blog or not. pat

I know that it is hard to stay positive. Whatever it takes to survive- if silence helps so be it but if you need to vent we are here to listen.

Totally remember that feeling. Nothing to say. Nothing I wanted to say. Couldn't think happy thoughts if I HAD to. No worries. You are entitled. Infact you deserve to feel grumpy. This is not what you signed up for!
We're here when you want to talk...

You are one month closer and that is the main thing. Your time is coming, and we are all here to either listen to you be silent or listen to you vent, whatever it is that you need. Thinking of you often....

not sure what I can say to encourage you, but I am thinking and praying for you. I hope you hear something soon. I hope you have a good cw that can give you realistic timelines so as to avoid further heart-ache.

take care of yourself!

9 months was a hard time for me. I think it really has something to do with the whole expectation of 9 months waiting being related in our minds to having a baby and I just found it really hard. During that month, I kind of moved into a numbness that I guess was for self-preservation. I don't really have any great words of wisdom. I know you thought this wait would be over a long time ago and that makes it doubly hard...just wanted to say hello.

I get it too Laura!
