Marching on...

Our adoption agency continues to encourage us through emails and conversations. They use phrases like, “It will happen soon” or “It will happen for you.” Regardless of these broad statements, we are disappointed and frustrated. Yes, once again we were not chosen.

We continue to repeat the words, “keep the faith.” This is a constant mantra in our life. We hear these 3 words in our heads and from everyone around us. Despite these positive thoughts, it feels as if we are perpetually setting ourselves up for rejection and disappointment.

When is enough really enough? When do we loose the word when and replace it with if? These are questions that perplex us. As for today, we are putting one foot in front of another. We are continuing on this path marching to the beat of our own drum.

At present, we find great solace in the following statement. "We could never learn to be brave and patient, if there were only joy in the world", Helen Keller (1880 - 1968).

I came across your this site and I know exactly how you feel!!!!!! My partner and I waited a little over a year for our daughter to come into our lives. I thought it would never happen and all my postive energy was slowly draining out of me. It happened for us and IT WILL happen for you. You two have so much to offer a child and there is a child for you. Hang on to your positive thoughts and remembe its not "if" its "when"
