Feeling sad...

I'm just feeling sad tonight. I was putting things way in the "baby's room" and just took a moment and looked around....looking at all the things I got for our future child. My emotions just took over, and I couldn't stop crying. This time last year I was full of joy of what my future would bring. That this spring there could be a referral for us. There will be no referral for us this spring....or even this year.

That makes me sad.

It's been a year waiting for a referral

I have nothing positive to say.

Two Trips Needed Now.

Its official we now have to travel twice to Ethiopia for our adoption to go through. With everything that has happened during this application to adopt from Ethiopia it comes to us as another hurdle to get over. I’m not sure where we will find additional funds to travel twice but we’ll figure out some how. Part of me is excited over the fact that we might be able to see our child the first trip, though I’m wondering how that will affect me emotionally having to leave them behind. That part scares me more then anything. I know that everyone that will be affected by this change knows how I’m feeling.
