One year ago
One year ago we formally applied to the HOLT WC Child program and received S's file....he was the first one we requested and we lingered on his beautiful eyes and his little old man hair line, pudgy belly and gorgeous eye lashes....we waited a couple of months and as we finished up our home-study interviews, we thought that it would be a good time to request to "go to committee" for him....that was last June. We hope that we will be able to see him before an entire year has gone by since our formal "match".... i know it will happen soon, but "soon" seems to take eons to get here. I just looked back at his first photos...the pictures we have date back to January of 2010- he was adorable but looked so concerned about something, worried....we haven't had a photo-update since December....but are hopeful some will be coming soon- again that feels like eons. I am remaining positive and grateful, trying not to get too anxious about all the drama concerning the slow-down, new processes or government shut down. Its hard, though. I know i have so many families dealing with the same things we are, the delays and confusions and frustrations, and that is helpful. I guess misery does love company, afterall.
