Waiting and waiting and waiting
Today it feels like we've waited an eternity to grow our family. I sat back and reminded myself that we've only been trying to have another baby for two years. Wait, that's wrong. We've been trying to have a baby for three years. This week Jamie got back from a work conference that he attends every three years, the last time I was with him. It was shortly after our first miscarriage and I remember thinking that I'd get pregnant shortly after and have another baby. Clearly, I was wrong. Sometimes I feel just plain ol' stupid for keeping up the hope. But, I try to tell myself this is a new journey, when we applied for adoption we started over. So, our wait has really only been about 6 weeks. Six weeks of having our profile in the book. If it's only been 6 weeks, why does it feel so long?
