The Longer You Wait For Something, The More You Appreciate It When You Get It... Because Anything Worth Having Is Definitely Worth Waiting For.                                             -Unknown

In exactly 22 days we will meeting with an Adoption Selection Committee that will ask us questions to see if we're able to adopt two siblings. This is the fourth time this meeting has been rescheduled. Waiting is probably one of the hardest parts about fostering and adopting. It's a world of unknowns and unexpecteds. It's a complex system of many different parts that have to align just right to work. Timelines, deadlines, and planning are pretty much thrown out the window. It goes against every fiber of my plan-it-out-schedule-three-months-ahead being. It's so good for me to wait, and consider, and learn to take each day for what it brings.

Right now Jeff and I have precious, uninterrupted time together. It's a gift. It's a blessing. It keeps increasing, but it's all about perspective. Soon we will find out if we will be parents of two siblings that need a forever home. If yes, our lives are going to get crazy! If no, we will go back to working with the private adoption agency and finish the plan with them. We will be parents soon. We just don't know how soon. So we wait, and pray, and plan, and dream, and enjoy every day we have together.
