Today is October 3 and our dossier flew to Korea on May 3rd. You know what that means??? 5 months waiting!!!!!
I am almost sure Leah is born, and that makes me incredibly happy. With the longest timeline from our agency, she is born. The worst case they have told me is that we will have to wait 3 more months for our referral, and that would make her about 2-3 months now. OR she could be closer to 5 months if we get our referral soon. :) A funny thing happened to me around month 4. I stopped carrying my cell phone around obsessively, checking the phone after I had gone upstairs for 5 seconds, or outside to check the mail. I just kinda gave up that it was going to ring. I stopped bringing up the fact we are adopting to every person I talked to. And I just tried to start functioning again. I think I am doing pretty well. I realized the other day (we do not have a home phone) that my cell had been in my car all afternoon, and I did not even panic, knowing it had not rung. I started believing that we will not get our referral until Christmas time. This is really seeming to help. All I have is the strong belief and feeling that baby Leah is being held and loved by a sweet foster parent on the other side of the world. And I pray for her all the time. Sooooo, 5 months down, who knows how many more to go.
Love you baby girl.
