Seven Months

Tomorrow makes seven months since I was LID. I believe I have another twelve months to wait.

    I hope things speed up and you don't have another year...but regardless, congrats on reaching 7 months!

    Congrats on seven down. As for what's in front, who really knows?

    But, it WILL happen.

    I'm hoping that it's not another 12! But maybe that's delusional. I think I need to be delusional right now. LOL!

    Happy 7 months though... at least you're that much closer.

    Happy 7 months down! I think the wait is going to speed up for you.

    Can you believe seven?? Maybe 12 more will go by quickly, but here's to it speeding up!! Congratulations!

    Ugh to the twelve months. Yay for the seven! May it go by quickly.

    Congrats, Joannah.

    Here's to the months that follow going faster than those little bugs can crawl!

    I'll have a hard time cheering you up since I've been down in the dumps about it this week...but hey...seven is better than six! Each month gets you one closer. (Theoretically...ha! ha!)

    This wait has gotten so long for everyone adopting from China. I feel for you! But you're well into it now. Just think -- Jillian may be already born by now or else she will be within a few months. And she's already destined for you.

    Congrats on 7 months....just keep on counting down or is that up. Either way you are getting so much nearer to your daughter.

    Seven down and a speed up to come next summer...I can feel it. No, that was just my doggie Gracie licking my leg. =) Well, I still believe a speed up has to occur at some point. What goes slow must go fast?!

    Happy 7 months to you! Here's hoping that it won't actually be another 12 months of waiting. Hang in there!

    Happy 7 to you. I hope things will speed up for you and all the other waiting families...

    Geesh, when you look at it like that it can really ruin a day.

    You are 7 months closer and so I say, "Happy 7 month LID-versary!"

    Happy 7 months! And I DON'T believe it will be another 12 for you! :)

    The way I look at it these days if the wait is 12 months then our daughters will be born within the next 6 months or so. There hearts are beating somewhere in China and waiting for us too.

    Hang in there and hunker down for the long haul. It will all be so worth the wait. Do everything you can to be completely prepared and don't wait to do anything until after referral, your life will never be the same after that day (in a very wonderful way!)

    Keep on standing in line - eventuallly we will reach the end. Glad that I have such fun people waiting with me.

    I know that it seems like such a long time away but every month forward is just another step toward your daughter. Happy 7 months!!!

     
  • At 7:46 AM, Blogger Andrew & Stephanie said…

    Happy 7 Months behind you! Hopefully you won't be looking at 12 more!

    I like your optimism, Joannah! (Whoever thought another 12 mos. would be optimism?)

    Happy 7 mos.!

    I LOVE that picture! Happy seventh! We'll be there on the 22cnd. Sigh. Still, that is a pretty cute picture! :-)

    Well, you're seven months closer. Hope that we see the referrals covering full months soon. It's gotta get better right?

    You never know, with people choosing to go the SN route and many switching to Guatemala and other countries because of the wait, maybe the wait will shorten.

    Keeping my fingers crossed for you.

    Oh the long wait... congrats on being 7 months into it... hang in there!

    Seven months is great!! I hope things speed up (as does everyone else).

    I am guessing the end of '07.

    Congratulations on getting that far. That, in and of itself, is a testament to your love for your little girl. And, while it may seem like an eternity, once she's in your arms the time spent waiting will seem like raindrops in the ocean.

    That's 7 months closer to Jillian!
    CONGRATULATIONS!!!

    Wow! Are you really anticipating a 19 month wait? I waited 14 months and many times felt like it was not real. You are doing so good with your wait.

    Happy 7 woman!
