No News

Nothing. No word about a court date. A friend posted on fb a photo of her little girl, the same age as Bee, dressed in a ballet leotard, posing in front of the mirror in a dance studio as a group of girls sit in the foreground with their heads together in a circle the way little girls do. I've been hearing this song in my head since I saw the picture.

Ballerina girl, you are so lovely.

I've officially entered that period when I avoid talking about this adoption and cringe when people ask if we have news.

Nothing. No news. That's it. Most boring blog post ever.

Helpful, not boring. Because I've been wondering how it's going and didn't want to ask because I know how this stage can start to appear. Thinking of you.

That is one hell of a photo, right?

Not boring. You are never boring. We are all waiting with you. Hugs to you. Not an easy time.

I've been thinking about you and your little B each and every day.

This is not boring! Many of us are at various stages of Waiting and I empathize... we are still waiting not-so-patiently-now for our referral. I too try to avoid the conversations...I get it. I totally get it.

Lori, it's gonna happen. This time of quiet waiting is so so so hard. But it's also such great practice for that quiet watching you have to do, and waiting, as your kids grow through hard things or make big decisions and so on. This is still so much time of preparation for you all....this time is fallow but preparing the soil,enriching it mightily...you just can wrap your hands around it all. And that's the hard part. You're still in my prayers, fwiw

Love you, Lori. News is on the horizon. This is sacred time, as are all phases of this journey. I can't wait to see the first images of Little Bee wrapped in your loving arms.

Oh my it's so hard. It's coming but it's so difficult. Once you get your date you will have no time (at least we didn't) is there anything else that you need to do while you wait.

I totally agree with all the others. I appreciate knowing the status and this lets me know how you are doing with it. Matters not that you feel crappy. When you sign up to be someone's mom you gladly take the entire gamut of emotions. The good,the bad, the ugly and the boring. Now I can tell everyone here who asks and try to give you a buffer. This will give me more time to look for a real tiara. Love you to pieces.

My heart hurts with you during the continued waiting...I've not forgotten what it feels like. So, so hard.

I'm not supposed to be blogging / commenting, but wanted to pop and tell you how much I think the whole 'no news' scenario sucks. Really sorry.

hang in there, rooneys.
the waiting... not easy at all.
i still get a "squeezy tummy" (as pete describes it) when remembering the court date wait.
peace...
