Six Months LID

Well it's been 6 months since my LID and just about a year since I started the process and here I am. When I began back in October 2005 it was a 6 month wait from LID to referral. In any case I really have little to report but someone (I'll just look at the guilty party and whistle) keeps reminding me that my blog is in need of serious updating so here I am. What's been going on? Well I'm working 5 jobs if I include a consulting project I'm currently working on, or at least should be. I don't have a lot of time to myself to do the things I enjoy like read, sleep or shop but such is life. One day I'll be glad I took the time to work my ass off, pay off some bills and save some money, right? I think the best thing that's happened in the last year or more specifically in the past six months are the friends I've made through this incredible process. I feel truly lucky to know such great people. I won't embarrass them by naming them but they know who they are and if they don't, we have a problem. A year ago I remember being home from work on Yom Kippur like a good Jewish girl and receiving the call from my agency. The southern belle on the other end was letting me know I was approved to begin the process and I was trying to explain to her the significance of getting this information on this day and more importantly this time of year. She didn't get it. After having "met" some of the people from around the same place as where the agency is located, I can now understand why. Nuff said. Til something exciting happens..........

Thank you for the update. I feel like I can breathe again.

You can always let Nic guest-post for you. Hell, with working FIVE JOBS, I think you absolutely need a secretary, though probably not a social director, eh?

We always have to look back at the year behind us and to the year ahead during this time of year. I am glad you updated and let us know what is going on with you. Hopefully, this time next year, you will have at least a picture of your little one, if not already home and back. La Shana Tova my dear.
