It's been over 2 weeks since I last posted. Every time I come back to my blog I see the picture of Giraffe. The same picture has been there every day. What is there to do? What is there to write? Not much. I can't speed this adoption process up. I can't do anything else to make anything happen. I'm just....here.
A couple posts back I mentioned that I was trying not to think about our son/daughter-to-be. Well, while I can't say that I've succeeded in that, it seems that I've been able to kind of put it on a shelf that is a little further back in my brain. Yes, it does help that I've been insanely busy with wedding season, and that I have been left with little opportunity to just sit and think about everything. Oh yeah....there is also the embarrassing addiction that Wes and I have to The Unit. I think we spent about 2 or 3 weeks staying up until 2am watching it. We spent every night shooting up bad guys in our dreams too, all for the sake of our country. And I don't know if we've been brainwashed by watching it too much, but we started to really find some good parallels with The Unit and our faith. The men in the Unit are willing to die for their country. They are ready to say yes to whatever mission they are given, no questions asked (okay, I know some of you politicals are ready to jump on all the stuff they do on the show, but stay with me...I'm not making any political statements right now). They are passionate for their cause. In the same way, we need to be ready to die for our faith. And our answer should always be yes, before God even asks the question. Such a good thing to remind myself of daily. Ah the great things we learn from television.... *insert sarcastic smile here*
So, now we have finished all four wonderful seasons, and we are back to life as usual. There are no updates on where we are on the waiting list, because our agency doesn't tell us that. It could be a couple months or more until we get a referral. Who knows.
So today, instead of writing about adoption woes and joys, I leave you all with one of my favorite commercials. It's a little aged now, but it never fails to make me chuckle. "I'm on a horse."
