Pity Party

I have been back on line for several days. I just haven't been in a posting mode. It seems that the initially promising rumors that I missed while my computer was down have turned into not so good ones. The dreaded 18 month to 2 year wait rumor is again surfacing and with quite a bit of back up. I just don't get it. We are all waiting..... the babies are all waiting...... so what is the darn hold up??? And how do you try and explain to your friends and family that you still haven't herd anything? I'm beginning to think that some people might even start thinking that this is not going to happen. I know it will but it is very hard to be convincing when you are unable to answer their questions as to why the wait you initially though would be 6 to 7 months has turned into 1 year and counting. I know we are all fortunate to be receiving beautiful baby's from the CCAA and I also know that they have their own agenda in determining when that will be. It is the continuing lack of information that is so frustrating. So with a LID of December I was hoping to at least have Abby's referral by December. It's now looking like it won't happen until the spring but, "Hey, Who really knows?"

Yes, the uncertainty stinks, doesn't it? Don't you wish you could be a fly on the wall of the CCAA for a week? Of course, you'd have to be a fly who understands Chinese...

I know exactly how you feel, I wish I could tell everyone at work and I wish I could start the Nursery..but it's difficult with all the delays.

It sucks!!! They originally told us that from application, through homestudy, to home with baby would be 12-16 months. It's looking like it could be longer than that with referrals for taiwan lingering around 1 year, then it's 4-6 months to get through court. I know it will all be worth it in the end, but all this does simply suck. On a lighter note, maybe we'll both have our babies around the same time.
