Before this post, here are some blog posts of days gone by that you may enjoy for a walk down memory lane...
Our First Trimester
Our Second Trimester
And now.... onto the third.
So here we are, 300 posts into this journey. And STILL WAITING. But, I think we are on the home stretch. Though I've often felt when it comes to adoption but you should think of the "worst case scenario" and then add two months. We thought worst case scenario we would be back in Russia by June. Now, four months after meeting the love of our lives, we are trying to wait with grace. It's a difficult road, that's for sure. I never imagined that this part of our journey would be like having your heart ripped from your chest and leaving it in a foreign country, walking around outside your body. It has not only been a mental challenge, but a physical and spiritual challenge as well. I would like to think I could have handled this all a lot better if it weren't for the particular circumstances that we have run up against with the friction and uncertainty set into motion by this adoption crisis.
So, here we are. Our third trimester. Hopefully, in August (when our Judge returns from vacation) we'll just go ahead and put this incredibly long paper pregnancy to rest. We are LONG overdue.
