OK on second thoughts.......

There is something to blog about. For the last several days my heart has been so dang heavy and I walk around with a lump in my throat. I miss my baby. I want her home so bad, my heart and my arms ache. I know some people would think that is crazy, how can you miss someone you don't know....but you see I do know her, she has been in my heart for so long. I guess it all started with the ONE day of referrals. I know we are so close, but it is that so close but yet so far feeling, that gets you down. And I apologize to the people out there that look to me for encouragement , it is just not here tonight right now. I will snap out of this, I always do, right now I just got to have my own little pity party. COME ON CCAA PLEASE GIVE US OUR BABIES!!!!

Another thing that is getting me down is all of the blogging arguing going on. Let's face it friends, all of us are not going to agree on everything, or believe in the same things, or even like each other all the time, but we can't let the evil one step in and take over, we are all in this together, so let's all take a deep breath and start the day anew, ok. In these times I always try to remember:

Don't get tired of doing what is good. Don't get discouraged and give
up, for we will reap a harvest of blessing at the appropriate time.
Galatians 6:9

someone in blogland is arguing? unfathomable! LOL!

Kristy, I completely understand you wanting to see Franceska's face & caress her hair and rub her little back...she IS your baby and has been since the beginning of time! Come on, CCAA!!

Patricia/NYC said...

Hang in there, Kristy...your sweet Franceska will be in your arms soon! It's so hard waiting like this & you have every right to indulge in a pity party. Sometimes a good cry is just what we need to let it all out!

And, I loved the quote at the end of your post! Beautiful!

Hang in there, you are getting another step closer everyday. Speaking from experience, your day will come and once you have her in your arms you will know that the wait has been worth it. She will be the most perfect little baby for you and your family.

Sweet Sister ... You are allowed to be down, sad, and frustrated w/ the CCAA ... It is your daughter you are fighting for ... Let me then encourage you today ... Be proud that you are a mother who longs to hold her daughter whom she has never met and know you are one day closer ... The Father hears your cries and cries w/ you ... He is doing a mighty work in Franceskas right now preparing her for you ...

Love to you and your family!!!

I hate it when people have to argue ON BLOGS! I mean, it's not like they actually have to LIVE with these people. There's this nice little button on your computer called the DELETE key. Just don't look at it if you don't like it. Silly people.

As for the wait, all I can offer you is my prayers and this BIG OLE HUG!!!!!!!!!!

OH MY #6 said...

You are the BEST! Life would be boring if we where all the same.

I know you must be heavy of heart. You have had a very long wait. I am not sure how well I will be doing when I have waited as long as you. Hang in there friend. We are all out here to support each other. I am at a mere 22-months and I feel the same some days.

BIG, HUGE, GIANT, extra hugs to you today.

I am so sorry your heart is heavy and I completely understand. You've been waiting a very long time! You know that God has the perfect baby picked out for you. She's just not ready for you yet. I know it doesn't make it any easier though.

Kristy, I totally understand. Many of my LID buddies are jumping the NSN's line to got to the SN cause it is quicker. I'm saddened that I won't be traveling with many of them and one in particular. I know I have had the same feelings, but just can't bring myself to change from NSN to SN. I guess something down deep inside of me says that she isn't born yet.
I keep on praying that the CCAA will do the right thing and speed these things up like was said a while back. Hopefully the start of 09' they will fulfill this dream and "speeder' up boy's"!!
