Wonder Turned to Yearning

Yes, we have adopted twice from Eastern Europe, so we should be comfortable with the process. It was not until today 3.5 months into the process that I remembered the reality of international adoption .. and I am still struggling to be comfortable with it.

Reality is ...

1) If they say 2 months, they mean anywhere from 2 to 24 months.
2) We hope to get it done this week, means in the next few weeks.
3) When you think you know what is going on, everything changes.

We heard we may travel in April or May, silly me I believed them. I am trying to readjust my expectations to travel sometime before December 2009. I am trying to somehow learn to live with the unknown, as my heart yearns to hold our little boy.
