|Our Thanksgiving with Cousins in Birmingham|
Our social worker gave us a rough guideline weeks ago… she said that if we don’t have adoption news by December 1, then we probably won’t get Amelia in 2010. So I guess I will know by 11:00 today whether we’ll get Amelia this year. If all is silent today – and silence seems to be the theme lately – then I can have a major cry and then wrap my mind around at least another month or two of painful silence as our baby girl grows older by the day.
If I'm being completely honest, I won’t let hope go for at least another week. December 1 was only a rough guideline, and I’m not good at letting go. This is my daughter we’re talking about. I have to believe we could hold her soon.
Your prayers are appreciated.
