Tick-tock, tick-tock, tick-tock...

For some reason, I don't remember the wait we experienced with the first adoption. I guess we were busy or something. This go around is excruciating and has me just itching to go! I try and remind myself that I was soooo ready to leave after the 7th week of that adoption, so I shouldn't be in a hurry to return. Not that I don't like Ukraine, I love it. But it was very hard to feed and clothe three kids in a foreign land where the government doesn't care that you are almost broke and not at home or working.

But alas, we wait and we wait and we wait. I wonder what is going through R's mind as she waits, too? She is away at the sanatorium with no way to communicate to us nor us to her. Does she wonder why we aren't there yet?

I toyed with the idea of putting up one of those countdown tickers or moving slide counters. I'm sure it would drive me crazy looking at that thing every time I open our blog. Besides, I don't need a counter to tell me that our appointment is 8 weeks from today.

Cue the Jeopardy music...for 55 more days!

Waiting is always the worst part! It nearly drove me mad. Praying that your 55 days whiz by! :)

I can't believe that last year at this time I was banging my head waiting to get our girl...and now those waiting days seem so long ago. Praying yours go quickly too! God bless!

I remember that agonizing waiting!! I pray God comforts both you and your waiting babies until he allows you to go get 'um!! Happy Thanksgiving!!

Ugh! The thought of that music for 55 days is nightmarish! Praying that God gives you patience for His perfect timing!

And sometimes the comment verification words strike me as funny. I am now about to type the word "folumpi." :)
