To Whom It May Concern

We continue to wait for our To whom it may concern letter. It is getting harder and harder! The Thai coordinator from our adoption agency (WACAP) has told us 6-7 month until we will here more. At the end of April it will have been 5 months since we recieved our refferal. Is this normal to wait this long? My heart aches to hold Emery and each day it gets harder. Our adoption agency will be visitng Thailand again in May. Hopefully at that time we will get our letter. At this point we are just waiting for the Thai board to meet and issue the letter. I believe they meet every other week, and am assuming they have a stack of files to go through.

Her room is starting to come together. We have really enjoyed decorating it, now we just need our sweet little girl to be in it. We have a few more big items to get; dresser, rocking chair, more decorations to hang, and of course more clothes & toys. It is really weird, I am starting to feel like wow I am going to be a mommy soon. It kind of feel like the night before Christmas when I was a kid. Except I have no idea when Christmas is going to come. In my heart, I feel that God is telling me to hold on it is coming. I pray every day that she will bond with us right away and that motherhood will come easy to me. Its nerve racking becoming a mom for the first time.

I will continue to try and keep the blog updated, although there is not a whole lot to talk about right now! Soon though very soon!

Gosh, I've been meaning to call you but I just haven't gotten around to it. I'm praying along with you. Post some pics of her room!
You will be a great mom. Keep looking to GOd for your strength.

I can't imagine how frustrating it must be to have to wait so long for that precious girl. The room looks so adorable! I can't wait to see what a great mommy you are!

Congratts to the daughter! She will be in the same age as our daughter was when we picked here up. We are soon waiting for our second child, this time from Red Cross. So please can you tell me everything you know??? Do you know how long every one else have been waiting? What age of the child did you wish for? Sorry for my bad english. May I email you?
