2 years...24 months....730 days...

However you look at it, it sucks!!!!

Whoever said International Adoption is the "easy" way to go is CRAZY!!!!!! There has been nothing EASY about this whole ride!

Can you tell I'm in a funk?! I normally try to just go with the flow. There's nothing I can do about it but wait it out, so I try not to let it get me down. But here lately I've just been getting really tired of the whole mess! NO....we're NOT giving up. We will wait however LONG it takes. But that doesn't mean it gets easier with time. That doesn't mean it's not CONSTANTLY on our minds.

I was so excited when we first decided to begin the process to adopt our daughter from China. SO EXCITED!!!!! I've always wanted to adopt from China, and I was glad I was going to get the opportunity to realize my dream. I know the best things come to those who wait. I know she is going to be worth EVERY MINUTE we've waited. But that doesn't help me while we're waiting. I pray every night for Kalia to join our family.

I will continue to hope. I will continue to pray. I will continue to wait.


  1. We've made it this far, right? We'll be pros at it by the time we get a referral!
    Waiting and praying with you....

  2. We're all trying to survive the wait. Congrats on you 2 year anniversary. You're not alone. It will happen.

  3. sucks! Congrats on surviving two years. Waiting, hurting, praying, and hoping with you.

  4. Sending a big hug Brandi. It will happen, I'll be right alongside you.

  5. Right there with ya. I think it's perfectly natural to get in a funk once in a while. I'm trying not to think about spending ANOTHER Christmas without our child. It wil be our 8th one since trying to start a family.

  6. Yes, this stinks. Hang in there.

    Hey Brandi,

    I don't know how it is personally, but I know it's hard to wait 9 months, I could only imagine 3 years. I know you can do it sis, you can do anything you set your mind to and this is no different. Besides you have a great support system, so don't forget us when you need us most.
