One Month Dreaming

We have been on the waitlist to adopt for 1 month today!
Our case manager told us to tune out these first months of waiting, because the wait can get really stressful and even agonizing, especially down the road when we will be closer to our referral.
But, I am finding it difficult.
I want to know when other parents receive their precious referrals.
I want to know about babies coming home to join their forever families.
I want to know about the struggles other families are facing.
I want to know just about everything!
And so I tune in.
And, perhaps it may hurt me in the long run. But, for today, I want to know!
I LOVE being on the waitlist. It makes it more real--having a daughter (or two!).
I DREAM. Of curls. Of chubby arms and legs. Of tiny toes. Of giggles.
I even dream of the messy.
Dreaming of our girl/s takes me to another place. A place of love. A Heavenly place.
And I am SO in love!


  1. Are you a part of the Facebook group? It is a great way to connect with other AGCI moms!

  2. I feel your pain with the wait time! My husband and I have been on the waiting list for a month and 2 weeks now. We are adopting domestically. Like you, I told my husband once we were on the waiting list I would feel TONS better knowing it was out of my hands and into God's. It's so exciting thinking about getting that call to come pick up your baby! I'll be praying for you and I hope you do me as well! :)

  3. Praying for a speedy referral for you guys!!!
