Feeling it...

For some reason these lyrics speak to me on so many levels.

One minute I held the key
Next the walls were closed on me
And I discovered my castles stand
Upon pillars of salt, pillars of sand...


I feel it can relate SO easily to our attempts, our failures, our hopes and our dreams...

Sometimes I feel like it's never going to happen.

Firstly, it will happen for you...as it will happen for us. I have to believe that there is something magical in store for us and for you. Something HUGELY magical.
I love you when you are open, vulnerable and honest as you are in this post.
Hugs to you.

I just wanted to send you a hug because I didn't want to be the asshat with the kid that tells you it's all going to be roses and sunshine and the wait sucks when I am done with the miserable wait. I feel for you though!

It will happen one day. I just hope it happens sooner rather than later for you. Try to keep the hope.

I hear exactly what you are saying... sometimes I wonder 'will it happen?' and though everyone says yeah... I still question it... though on the other hand, I know it will... just not as soon as I want... well, as soon as we want... hang in there sister...

Dolores and Shawn said...

Like everyone else said, it will happen. It's just taking a lot longer than anybody ever anticipated. Hugs to you!

It will happen, believe!
Each day is precious, enjoy your family and friends.... we know the wait gets really old; plan special remembrances of your journey so far. It is a special time.

I get that you feel that it is never going to happen. I understand that. It will happen - It just has to happen. As the time keeps passing and we feel like we are getting further away rather then closer...well the frustration level gets so high it is hard to see around it.

You are a strong woman and you will get through this. We will be here to help you get through this.

I know how you feel. But I have to believe we'll get there. It's the only thing I have to hold on to.
Hugs

Yet, it will happen.

I DO understand that feeling and fear though.

Rhonda,
So glad I stopped by. Sounds like you need a pick me up and the one thing I can tell you is this adoption will happen. I know it's long and those of us in the wait, who have waited have all be through it. I like to thing their like labor pains, the worst part of the delivery!

Well, try to remember there is a little girl out there just as anxious for you as you are for her. She'll be in your arms. The consistent thing about adopting in China is that you will get your child.

Sending a huge hug and thoughts for this slow boat here to speed up soon.
