31 Months


I've been trying to begin this blog entry for a week and a half, and to be honest, I'm having a really hard time...I've re-wrote this sentence about ten (or more) times.

We have been keeping busy as usual, we've finished the entrance/staircase.
We built a section of fence that was missing, and built some gates to completly fence in the yard, so now the puppies have a fenced in yard that they can run and play in.

There have been three proposals in Quebec in the last month. While we are happy to hear that there is progress, each proposal brings with it a small sense of disappointment that it wasn't our turn yet. We are struggling with the lack of an end date to this wait. At the beginning of the wait we set our sights on the 24 month mark and hoped for a call sooner than that...now we don't know when the wait will end...will it be 32 months...or will it be 36 months...or gulp...will it be even longer than that!?

Sorry for the tone...there's just not that much to say about the wait these days...we're sick and tired of waiting. I'll be back next month...hopefully with a lighter tone and a better attitude.

All that I can say is hang in there. Your turn is coming soon. I can feel it!!!!! The wait totally sucks but as soon as you seen your little one's face, you'll just melt. I'm hoping and praying that June is your lucky month and that there will be no post titled "32 months"!!!! Take care and keep in touch.

Don't apologize for your tone, Tammy, because you have every right to feel the way you do. When you go into an adoption believing it will take "18 to 24 months" and it ends up taking "31..." Yeah, you have the right to feel hurt and wonder when it's going to be your turn. So don't apologize, because it's perfectly OK. Just keep praying. And I will keep praying that your turn is just around the corner!

Me too, i just can't believe we're gonna reach these 31 month this week end... It's totally too long!! But I'm pretty sure we'll have a call soon in the next weeks. And don't want to make you wrong but the're have been 5 referral in the last month ;) So it's very good for us ;)

I hear you. We are up to 50 months waiting (Thai program, Australia). When our file went over it was meant to be 12 months. We are wondering if our turn will ever come and those are horrible thoughts to have. :(

Hi Tammy,
I know exactly how you feel...I've been wondering too if we're ever going to get the call!! We've been trying to keep busy...and that helps a lot...but I've been finding it hard to stay positive since we've reached the two year mark. The waiting period is getting longer for everybody and there seems to be no end in sight!! Luckily we have happy stories like Renee's to remind us that we will eventually get matched and bring home our little one. Hang in there...because it is for real, and your turn will come...very soon!!

Yes am going with Renee's bet...June is a GREAT month! All your bloggy friends are all waiting in anticipation to hear of your big news. Surely it will be soon, very soon!
