Too Good To Be True

Well it looks like the light at the end of the tunnel was indeed a train. Rumor has it that matches only made it to the 7th at the most. That means another month just like last month. So, in the past five months, they still havent made it through a full month of referrals. I am soooo bummed. I was trying so hard not to get my hopes up, but obviously I was just fooling myself. It is such a bummer too. We all went out this morning and picked up a few really cute summer outfits at the OshKosh Outlet. It was so much fun thinking that in just a week we know who would be filling up those little things. Now, I am just plain sad.

Here are some pictures of the loot from our little outing today.

Eliana's Nursery

Eliana's room is almost ready. The furniture is in, the window treatments are up, but the walls are still pretty bare. Doug Wodark, a good friend and professional artist is working on an amazing painting of a cherry tree with some asian inspired architectural components in the background. I cant wait for it to be finished. I had a preview last week and it was awesome. I will post more pictures when it is all completed.

Eliana's Big Brothers

Could this be the week?

I am getting a little obsessive now. Checking the Rumor Queen site way too often. I just feel like there is this huge life change that is going to happen, only I still dont know if it is going to happen this month. It seems silly, I know, especially to my dear husband, because if it isnt this month, it will be next. But, I just want to know if it is this month or not. Even if I dont have the referral yet, I want to know if it is coming. Well, here is to hoping we have a really great birthday present for Elijah (June 13) and Father's Day present for Milan!

Waiting... Waiting... Waiting...

We may be seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. After over 2 years of this process, we are hoping that the light isn't actually another train of delay about to take us out. The past few months have been so disappointing as we had thought we would have our little sweetpea by now. But, God has had other plans for us. We continue to wait...trying to be patient, and knowing that he has the perfect child chosen for our family. All signs are pointing to our match coming through the first week of June. I say that knowing full well that I said something very similar in February, and March and April... BUT, we are actually really close, even by recent standards of movement in the process. I am trying not to get too hopeful that it will be just a few more weeks, but it is so hard. It is pretty amazing to think that someone in China could be looking at our dossier right now, deciding who our little girl will be!!
