I just...

I just want to see his face.

I just want to know his name.

I just want to know how old he is.

I just want to buy him something special.

I just want to know he is healthy.

I just want to know he is thriving.

I just want to know he is being loved.

I just want to know that he is OK.

I just want to see him in my dreams.

Is that too much to ask?

I used to look forward to checking the boards/blogs at the end of every day but I'm starting to dread it. This no referral thing is brutal!

Referrals are like falling in love-they come when you least expect it! I had just resigned myself to waiting for a referral until August or September and WHAMO got one in April (22mos). I hope that it happens for you soon. With groups starting to travel again hopefully this means open spaces and referrals for all!

We're a couple months behind but I am RIGHT THERE empathizing and hurting and wanting with you. Elections are over so perhaps now we will see new adoption guidelines being talked about...and some referrals rolling in. PUHHHHLEASE.

I really feel for you guys...too be that close for so long has got to be the hardest part of the wait so far.

Tammy said...

Laura, I know exactly what you are feeling. I just want to know the same things about our little one. We're so close but yet soooo far.
I wish there was something we could do to ease the anxiety. I hope you get your referral this week. The lack of referrals is so difficult. Thinking of you. :)

Tammy

P.S. I'm going to be a sobbing mess when you get your referral. Can't wait!

Lavonne said...

Laura,

Wish I had some really good words to get you through this hard time. I think we are all in shock a bit at the slowness this time around.
I keep thinking of you all and sure wish I had some magic to speed it along.
I know it has been said but hold strong it cant be much longer , right ?
Shannon

Janice said...

Hugs,

That's not too much at all- what is too much is the wait. Come on already!! Being so close isn't enough- don't they get that??
