18 months

We're sorry that if you've checked our blog in the past 6 months, all you've heard was crickets.
It's just that there hasn't been anything to update and it's been easier to distance ourselves from the adoption world than to agonize over every minute, day, week, month, and year that goes by and we're still not parents.
The good news is that this insanely long wait has given us the chance to tackle a huge project that we knew we'd need to do someday. In July, around the time we decided to change our preference to two kids and knew we'd be waiting even longer for our referral, we started on our dream addition to our house. We're almost finished now and SO glad that we had the chance to do this project before we had kids running around! It will be so nice to bring our kids home to our finished house and their forever home!
I think Christmastime would be a very fun time to receive one's referral so maybe we'll be giving a fun update soon! If not, look for an update in another 6 months which will be 2 years on the waitlist. Surely we won't make it that long, right?

Thinking about you all. I have noticed how you always reach out to others in a kind, supportive and positive way. Some days must be really hard waiting for your first kids. I remember *thinking* I was going nuts waiting for our first adoption. We waited ---get this---five months. Wasn't I a wimp! I know it is hard to pretend you aren't in limbo when you are. Just wanted you to know that I admire how you make lemonade out of lemons. I try to stay focused each day about our children and their life journey. I pray they are still in the loving arms of their family. And I pray for you. Hang in there! --Elaine (waiting, too)

Hi! I wanted to stop by and tell you that I check on your blog from time to time. Before we know it WE (my husband and I are at the bottom of the list) will be playing with our babies and blogging about how they melt our hearts everyday. Can't wait to read your referral post :).
