A Few Notes on The Wait and
What a busy time we've had here at myadoptionwebsite!
Many families in China - as well as one in Kazakhstan and
one in Guatemala - during the past several weeks, new
websites being created, a wonderful reunion in western
Tennessee, and preparations for the holiday season Great
Giveaways! Also, last week we turned in our paperwork to
the Pittsburgh USCIS to extend our I171H. We took
Adrienne along and it was very neat to have her see
part of the process we underwent while adopting her.
Of course we took pictures and will post them soon!
That same day we purchased Adrienne's Christmas
present - - tickets to the Nutcracker! We're
counting down the days until we can enjoy this special
holiday tradition once again.
As always, this long wait is very much on my
mind and heart. We have a June 2006 LID, and will hit
the 18 month mark in mid-December. So hard to believe.
Harder to believe is that we are probably (hopefully?)
just half way there. I've tried a few times to write
about celebrating this holiday season and waiting for
our daughter - - so many of you are experiencing the
same emotions, I'm sure. I haven't been successful in
putting my thoughts into words, and if I don't, let me
say here that I understand and you are not alone.
On a lighter note, a
myadoptionwebsite mom emailed me
about this fun Christmas shirt at Old Navy, or
. . It says "Best Present Ever" and if you are traveling to China in December, this
would be a great little shirt to take with you!
