If you ever want a lesson in patience.....adopt a child. It's definitely out of my comfort zone to have to wait and wait for each new step. We waited for our immigration to get filed, we waited for our new passports after losing the first ones, we waited for our LID, and now we wait for our PA (pre-approval). This does not sit well with a person who, when she gets an idea in her head, gets stuff done....quick. I really am trying to be patient. I'm trying to listen to the friends....voices in my head....that keep reminding me that there is a reason for everything and that this timing is no different. That the 3 week wait here, the rule change there, the delay over there....all get us to our little girl. One of those things being different would not have given us the same smiling face and beautiful huge brown eyes. I know this, I just have a hard time surrendering to it. I'm trying though. What choice do I have.
