A Bit Bummed

Okay...so I'm about full disclosure, you know?  And I just really need to do some venting, so here goes...

I'M A BIT BUMMED RIGHT NOW!!!

Now don't get me wrong...I know God is still at work and everything, but we waited for so long prior to our referral (which we requested--in God's providence, of course--or we would still be waiting!) and now we are waiting for over two months again for paperwork to come from Taiwan so we can hurry up and wait some more!  In the meantime, other blog friends of mine are rejoicing in finding their children and getting their paperwork to their respective countries and in probably traveling in late 2010 or early 2011 for their children.  And while I'm REALLY HAPPY for them, it kind of bums me out that we are still waiting, and we initiated our process before some of these families.  Before you chide me and tell me that every adoption situation is different and God is in control and yada, yada, yada,  please know that

I KNOW!

It's just that I'm a bit bummed right now, that's all.  Thanks for listening...

Hoping Sophia knows how much we love her and want to bring her home...

I'm sorry Terri!! It's SO hard...that is the bottom line. God IS in control...but that doesn't make it any easier to know our children wait and wait and wait.... Adoption should not take so long and be so costly. It took us 15 LONG months to get Mia Hope home after referral. I watched many families travel months before we did. I was happy for them...but I didn't understand the delay that we were experiencing. There seems to be no consistency. Looking back it all makes sense. But at the time...it was heartbreaking. I'm sending you a BIG HUG today!!!!

Love and blessings,
Robin

I know exactly how you feel as I am battling with those same feelings right now. We did get our dossier paperwork back, after 4 months of waiting. We turned them around as quickly as humanly possible and then we waited two more months just to be told to wait 2 more months for our court date. I have seen people behind me jump ahead too. I am happy for these other families but I know you and I both want to jump up and down and scream IT's Not FAIR! But I know that God is in control, His timing is perfect and I wouldn't want it any other way. But I still know how you feel.

Just another thought...I have 4 boys too. Maybe that's what's taking so long??
