6 Months Down!

Wow... six months. That's half a year. How many more will I wait until Mia comes home? You're guess is as good as mine. I continue to pray that she will be home by next Christmas. With the wait just about 15 months at this point, I'm right on the bubble for that happening. It's still a possibility but if it continues to grow ( not listening Connie!! I can't hear you (insert fingers in ears) la la la la la) ..... Anyway, if it continues to grow I may miss Christmas and be traveling in 2008. Which will really suck! I mean, don't get me wrong... I'll be happy to go to China and get my baby whenever they tell me to. It's just really hard to visualize 2008 right now without getting just a little sad. That's so far away. Good things come to those who wait, right? I must be patient.

But I'm also very, very, very (very to infinity) thankful that I started this process when I did. Otherwise the new "No More Singles" rule would've shut me out altogether. Although, I'm very sad Mia will not have the opportunity to have a Chinese little sister. I'd be so devastated to not have Mia on her way. I feel for all the other single gals who've been sitting on waiting lists for a long time. Waiting to start this process only to now find out that it's no longer an option. One agency I contacted in the beginning told me they would get to me in 2008 to start the paperchase. What if I hadn't found my single spot when I did? Don't even want to think about it. So on a happier note...... Happy 6 Month LID-versary to me! Let's hope I'm halfway there. Okay okay Connie... more than a third? I won't believe the longer wait theory until I see it grow every month. Today it's 15 months. That's what I believe today! :)

Happy #6! If only the wait stayed at 15 months! We'd only have another 9-10 to wait! That sounds wonderful at this point, doesn't it?

Congrats on your 6th!! I'm sad that our daughter won't have a Chinese sister as well (for health reasons). We wont be able to adopt from China a second time and to be frank, we are a little worried that they won't grandfather us in on this one. Scary stuff.
