I am sure that lots of you out there are feeling the same feelings as me.... the waiting is the hardest part. A little part of me every day is hopeful that today will be the day we get a call. We have been trying to keep busy with training and events and making sure all the house things are done but that little piece of me that is always hopefully is also tiring. People keep asking for updates... which there are no updates.... we are waiting until we are matched - and when we are matched all will know about it.
A child was profiled to us a few weeks ago and we asked to be considered to see if we were a match and our worker just sat on it and so the child was matched with someone else by the time she inquired. It is tough to accept that our lives are in someone else's hands right now and believe that this process and system will work out when things like that happen.
We are talking about planning a big vacation at the beginning of summer but even that is tough because there is the whatifs that prove to be stronger than the woohoo a vacation!
Just needed somewhere to put my feelings and I know the people that read this forum have/had/ or will feel these things too.

Aw Shansi, I totally remember those feelings. Life becomes a limbo and you never know where you stand. I can say tho for us, both times it came out of the blue when we least expected it. Adoption sure has its tough moments but it will lead you to the right place in the end, it can just take some time <3
