I'm still way pissed off by this delay. When you consider the fact that the universe is something like 15 billion years old and our planet is about 5 billion years old while humans get to live, on average, about 85 years you'll see my point. It's a rip. We don't much time to enjoy this whole life thing and the damn Russian government is wasting away a few of my months that I should be able to enjoy with my child. Don't they realize I need to get these kick ass years in before I die?

Oh, my new favorite TV show is Midsomer Murders on BBC America. It's a fabulous murder mystery series (which are my particular fav's). If you have this channel on DirecTV or cable you might want to check it out. I highly recommend it.

But as I say in the class I teach, like each and every session, "but I digress..." Sorry, I just love going off an tangents.

Nothing new on the hotline today. However, our agency continues to view this as a minor delay and not very big deal. Keep in mind we are really only waiting since about October, while our agency and most of the PAPs (Pre-Adoption Parents) with whom they are with have been waiting since May.

And to answer Cristina's question, No, we're not really doing anything special. But we have so many other things in our lives that it's pretty easy for us to just ignore the whole adoption mess. Until, of course, we hear some good news at which point we will be riveted again.

Or at least vaguely interesting.

    Join the club! It's the pits!!

    I just can't be any busier. Plus, all I want to do is surf around cyberspace and see if there is any crumb of information saying this thing is coming soon!

    I feel your pain!

    Vent away you know you have a right to be upset it is the pits..ugh.I would post on my blog the top 1O positve aspects of the wait did sort of help and in the end I can look back and say the timing could not have been better and every road block and heartache happened for a reason, but while I was going thru it it all wasn't that clear to me and I was pretty vocal on the adoption boards of my frustration with the wait and the process:) Prayers to you guys and as everyone says and I believe it does happen when you least expect it! Also will check out the bbc channel if we have it, I love mysteries actually brought the old Columbo movies to Russia on our trips.

    The whole thing sucks. I would be completely pissed off in your position. I hope things get back on track soon, both for your sake and for the child that is waiting for you!
