Babies R Us.....Swift and quick....

This is a store that I dread to go into as an adoptive Mom to be.....dont get me wrong, its a great store with great baby items, but if you are in your endless and adoptive.... "no end in sight wait "to be a Mom,  its not really a happy place you want to be. Hubby and I ran in there to get a gift card for a friend and had the pleasure of being in a never ending line full of screw ups and customer ridculousness that sent me over the edge.  I counted 8 baby bumps and a line full of preggie pops and nipple cream, not mentioning the 100 infants in their car seat/stroller options rolling around with new parents.........ahhhh.....not a hater......just a waiter..........can I get an Amen???? I am a Mom to be minus the extra weight.....yea I said it:)........

My everyday Korean babe waiting for me in Korea right now......his Mom and Dad waiting for the call.  Dreaming of the day comining home as we look up in the sky everyday and see big planes....knowing one day we will be on one home bound....Knowing that my child waits for me more than I wait for him...knowing that we are both in the world and we are ready to love him more than he ever though possible.  Knowing that as wonderful as birth is, adoption is just as sacred, maybe more because families are grown within our heart and not our womb.......

Happy Summer

Well since the seasons have changed since my last post, I guess Im due for one.  I've been following everyone's journey and wish everyone the best.  Hubby and I are in our 4th month of wait for a referral.  My agency still thinks we will have one by years end for our little Korean angel. We have our appt for our 3rd USCIS fingerprints next Monday!!!  I hope three times a charm and this is the last time we have to do it.  I don't know about everyone else but its a terrible place.  You have to shut your phone off(and show them) as soon as you walk in, you get a number and just sit in silence in a room with others and wait for your name to be called.  No TV, No music, white stark walls in a not so great neighborhood.  No Fun!!!

 So, like many of you we are getting very good at the waiting and keeping busy and distracted.  I have sunk myself into a work project so deep, its all I think about 24/7.  I think a bit of denial has also set in about our child which helps the emotional breakdowns:)

Here are some pictures from our vacation with our friends in Thousand Islands, NY on the St. Lawrence River bordering Canada. Absolutely beautiful.....and having two of our closest couples friends there just made it an absolute blast!

Happy Summer and best wishes to all of my adoptive family friends!
