Day of Disappointment

Well today has been a day of bad news with our adoptions. First we find out that they are not even going to look at adoptions in K until after the election and then it may be October before anything happens (if it ever does). I just feel this is another one of their excuses to continue the delays that have been ongoing since last year. I just have a really hard time staying positive that this will ever end.
Second I also found out today through another agency that China is not going to send out any more referrals until September due to I guess the swine flu. We have waited 3 years for them now and it looks like we have at least another year ahead of us. I am just a little bit over this.
Anyway I was talking to Lindze (my 5 year old) tonight about how it was going to be a long time before brother or even sister ever comes home. I told her I was just about ready to give up because I just don't have it in me to deal with this much longer. My 5 year blessing tells me "you didn't give up on me" and then she gave me a big ole hug. I cannot tell you how it felt to have my baby girl tell me that. She has faith so I guess I will have to have faith that something is going to have to happen one of these days. I guess I am going to leave it up to God to help me see this through to the end no matter how it ends.

SEPTEMBER! Are you flippin' kidding me? This whole China thing is out of control.... I hate the situation in both countries for you. I dont' get why the Kyrgyz government doesnt just let the matched children come home.
Lindze sounds like an amazing little girl. You are all in my prayers.

I'm sooooo sorry for you and the constant roller coaster you are on. I bet your heart melted when Lindze told you that. I know it's so discouraging when you get this kind of news, glad you have your sweetheart to help your heart.
Hugs!

I am so sorry Christine. It is unfathomable that anyone would have to endure this. It is so special that Lindze get's it and was able to express her thoughts so well. I pray for a miracle!
