We KNOW that this wait is FAR from predictable and it will probably change every day, every week, every month that we receive an update from our agency. There are countless factors... many having to do with things happening in China that we cannot predict, understand or, obviously, control.
There are 250 families currently "waiting" in our agency's waiting child program. Families who have recently been matched (desiring similar age range, gender and medical conditions as us) have waited 18-24 months.
18-24 months seems like a LONG time.
Especially since the hole in my heart seems to grow each day. And that feeling... OH that feeling... an ache...like when you MISS someone terribly...it just keeps getting worse. We've only be at this about a month... what's my heart going to feel like in 18 or 24?
