5 Months Waiting

As of today, we have been waiting to be matched for 5 months. Someone said to me a couple of days ago that 5 months isn't very long...

Then why does it feel like forever?

It's actually been 35 months total since we decided to start our family. When I think about it all, it's hard to believe how much we've gone through in the last 3 years.

It does feel like forever, doesn't it? But just think -- you're just that much closer to your baby!! It WILL happen! Hang in there!

The waiting is not fun. I hope and pray that you will get your little miracle very soon. I don't know if you've ever read my blog, but we are adopting a 9 year old boy from the foster care system in Texas. We got the call over 2 months ago that he was to be our son.We thought he would be in our home by now and that we would have at least met him! But, nothing has happened since. The ony reason I'm telling you this is that I know how the waiting sucks. Our stories are very different but we are both mom's just waiting on our babes to come to us! I hope you won't have to wait too much longer.

I understand how long it can feel sometimes, and I'm thinking of you. Your time WILL come!

We tried for 4 years before we opened the door to adoption. Oddly enough, we got "THE CALL" exactly 5 months from the day we were put into the pool. Those 5 months felt like 5 years. Anyone who says otherwise is CRAZY!

I don't know but I *assume* those five months feel like forever because they were tacked on top of the prior 30 months. It's been 43 months since we began TTC. And it's been THREE MONTHS since we first got word we were going to be doing IVF. And I can say that these three months has felt like an eternity too. The waiting is so hard!

Waiting sucks. Hang in there!! You are even closer to having your baby and it will happen for you :)

The wait sucks...nothing anyone will say will make it better or faster, but just knowing you have these many people praying for you and thinking about you lifts your spirits a little...right?!? LOL!
It WILL happen...tomorrow, next week, next month...but it WILL happen!

5 months feels like 5 years because every minute of everyday you're subconsciously (well, consciously :)) waiting for a phone call! We waited 7 months and that felt like the longest 7 months of my entire life! :)Even compared to going through 6 years of IF.....
I pray that your wait will come to an end very soon ~ hang in there!

Ditto...that's all I can say! We finally got our profile finished and turned into our agency...so now the "official" waiting begins. But, really, I've been "waiting" for almost 3 years now! :)
