I GOT DOUBLE D'S....


DOUBLE DIGITS BABY!!!! Now see...... I knew where I was going with that title, What were you thinking? We made it to the double digits. What's cool about being at ten months waiting and into the double digits is that we CANNOT go into triple digits(now refrain from any sarcastic remarks!!! It's hard, I know!!)

This means that we are at least halfway to having our baby home. Even if it takes 16 months for a referral and 4 months for court we are halfway there right NOW, TODAY. And tomorrow we'll be more than halfway. How cool is that?

So in honor of our double digits, 10 months, and in synch with my wanting to be more positive..
MY TOP TEN REASONS WHY THIS WAIT WON'T GET ME DOWN....
10: Because we are halfway there and they can't take that away from us.
9: We are at 10 months and I have not been committed
8: We have more time to spend...errr...save more money.
7: Our marriage is stronger having gone through all this.
6: I have met some wonderful families and friends through this journey.
5: I learned to maneuver my way through cyber space...and trust me this took time.
4: We have polished our interviewing skills.
3: We've almost learned the meaning of patience.
2: Our house is cleaner due to homestudies....and homestudy updates.
And the #1 reason why this wait won't get me down.....(drumroll please....)
***OUR CHILD IS WAITING FOR US****

Annie- It's won't be 10 more months. It WON'T. You'll be there by July, watch.

Your attitude is healthy, and right on the money. Your child is blessed indeed!

Love,
Val

When I saw the title of your post I swear my eyes popped out of my head! Holy cow, double d's ! Love the list and congratulations. I probably should come back when the shock of the title has worn off a bit.
P.S Enjoy the chilly weather and of course you can borrow Lily for the circus.
