This week I've learned about a change being made to the adoption process that will make our wait-time to travel after referral go from about 1 month, to at least 2 months. Just one more "bump" in the long and bumpy road of international adoption. And not only does the road seem to be getting bumpier, it's getting longer too! Since we have been DTV (on the official waiting list) our agency has not received any referrals. It's been over a month and I definitely expected to have moved up a couple of spots on the list by now. Surprisingly, I'm not getting upset about the lack of good news. Our journey to parenthood has been full of unexpected twists and turns and this is nothing compared to what we've already endured. I'm keeping myself busy with plans for the nursery and the excitement for my shower is overwhelming (thanks to all of the secretive planning my mom and SIL's are doing). And to keep myself even more busy, I've recently started a new Poppy project - be sure to check your mailbox over the next couple of days. (and by mailbox, I mean the one that is outside of your house, not your email inbox)
Oh, and one more bummer I had this week - as I was in the middle of listening to "Eat, Pray, Love", it suddenly went blank! One of the cd's I uploaded it from was damaged!! And now because of the popularity of the book, there is a really long waiting list to get another audio book. Just my luck this week. So while I'm waiting for my referral, and waiting to travel, and waiting for my new audiobook, maybe I'll write my own book called "Eat, Pray, Wait".
