Calling all adoptive parents…

So I have a question…

Now that we have FINALLY been referred and we have finished our first list of post referral tasks we have nothing to do but sit on our hands…is this the way it will feel all the way up to our travel date? A flurry of being busy and then a lot of waiting followed by more busy paper scrambling followed by MORE waiting and paperwork and waiting and paperwork…? That appears to be the case from all of your blogs that I have read.

If I am wrong correct me. If I am right…I am going to need some serious help.

Just kidding! I am going to need some serious strength and patience that only the Lord can provide BUT I am so grateful to finally know the precious little girl that I will have the joy to call my daughter that I know it is all worth it in the end.

We are coming to get you Annie Girl!!!!

    HURRY!!!! waiting….. HURRY!!!!! waiting….

    Yes, my dear that is the way it will be. But it is YOUR labor! Heart labor is always longer and harder than physical labor, but so worth it in the end. Lean on God and your support team…and call your adoption agency every week to see if there is anything they need. xoxoxoxoxo Mama Lisa ❤

    Ha! Yes, its all “Hurry up and WAIT”. That’s what we’re doing already before we get our referral. It is SO opposite to what we did the first time around. Everything…yes, literally everything is done and we haven’t gotten our referral yet. Then the scurry of SOS/TECO and then wait again until travel and then the hurry to book a flight and then wait till that date arrives.
    …and it’s no easier the 2nd time around, so I really don’t have any advice for you….except JOURNAL! You’ll be surprised how quickly it’ll seem it goes by when you’re home with your baby girl!
    Blessings! 🙂

    Mama Lisa is right on – hurry up and wait. It doesn’t matter the country (Taiwan AND Ukraine), it’s all the same. Hurry and wait. The best advice? Enjoy the ride and DO NOT try and control any aspect of your adoption. Let Him do that! It’s all better left in His hands anyway. 🙂 And then one day, you’ll look at your child and say, “geez! where has the time gone?” because they will just have celebrated their 14th birthday and you will still clearly remember the first time your new child was placed in your arms and how small they were and so cute!

    Yes, unfortunately. It’s the perfect time to practice waiting on His perfect timing. It can be really frustrating at the time, but afterwards, I felt like it was really a special time too- lots of time to think (and pray, and dream), lots of time for the two of you to just be the two of you (because you won’t be alone again for a loooog time! ), and just one of the most exciting times in my life so far. I’m praying for you!
