Maybe Next Time?

So, we are still playing the waiting game. There is nothing for us.

I am going to take a little time to mend my heart.

I want to thank you all for your support so far. I/We couldn't have gotten this far without all of your encouragement, support and friendship.

We'll blog again soon!

Like I already said- I am terribly sorry that you did not get the good news this time. With R going to Ethiopia next week -I am sure she will bring back lots of good news and you will be included in that batch! Thinking of you lots!

Ahhhh, Rana, I've been checking numerous times every day, and praying that you have your referral soon, and you will. It will happen at the right time.
See you next week, Happy Easter!

I am sorry that there was no referral for you this time. It will be soon, you have waited your turn. Thank you for posting your frusteration about waiting, it makes it easier for the rest of us!

I was hoping you would get yours as well. You are soooo close it must be very soon. Hang in there chicka, you are always so positive for me, I know you can do it for yourself too (harder I know, but do-able). Enjoy your Easter weekend and before you know it, it will be your great news that us behind you are grasping onto every word.......

Hugs Lyndsey

Sigh. I am picking mint for a giant RanaMojito.

Sharla said...

I was so hoping that this would be your time. About the only thing that I can say is that surely this will be the last Easter spent at your house without goofy decorations and talk of the Easter bunny and all the excitement that little ones bring to holidays. I am so sorry that this one won't have that extra celebration though.

Dianne said...

Oh Rana. You're on my heart and I'm so, so sorry.

Definitely next time...

also there is a LOT of chocolate in the stores right now. Go stock up.

haze said...

I'm glad you're taking time to heal your heart, Rana. It does sound like R will be gathering a ton of referrals this month.

And yes, chocolate fixes a world of ailments. Pick up a few of those smaller bunnies and viciously bite their ears off! I'm going to do the same, dammit!!

((HUGS)) to you and Yvan.

Stephanie said...

Oh Rana....sending you a big hug! Call anytime if you feel like chatting.

Thinking of you Rana, I can't imagine what I will be like when I'm in your shoes. Off my rocker I think!
Hope that R will have something for you when she gets back!
Warm fuzzies to you!

Darrell and Jess said...

Been thinking about you too... but I know it's coming soon... I can feel it! :)

Shannon said...

Blog breaks can be very helpful. Take the time that you need.
See you next week.
Hugs,

Tammy said...

Blah...sorry about this...I sure can't wait to celebrate with you...It'll be awesome to see your beaming face when you get your referral.
Have a good break, we look forward to hearing from you when you're ready. Take care.

((Hugs))

Love and hugs and prayers coming your way. It HAS to be your turn next.

Natalie and Chris said...

I hope every week that it's your turn, i'm so sorry it wasn't this batch of referrals. Thinking of you in your hard time.

Sometimes I wish I was a swearing gal, cause this is an appropriate time to drop a f-bomb, or maybe not quite so harsh, but something along that line. I was hoping so badly that you would get a referral this batch. I can't imagine what it's like knowing you are getting sooo close, but not getting the call. We at least know we are still about 3 months away. ha, or so we think....This is definatly the "low" of our valley. take care Rana....

Grandma daisy said...

Rana,

My heart goes out to you... I must say that I have a bit of an idea of what you are going through, and yet I know our situations are both different... This wait has gone on too long already. I am so hoping and praying that R will bring back that picture of your little one. And mine at the same time... I so don't want to enter month 19... And I so don't want to see another referral burst go by without finding out who your little one is. There are no words at this point to describe the pain of the wait, the frustrations and the disappointment.
I think Hazel has a good idea- go attack those chocolate Easter bunnies- and if you buy more of them next week you should find some on sale for the next few days until that call comes...
{{{Hugs}}}

So sorry to hear this, guys. The homestretch is by far the hardest part of the whole referral wait. It's so hard and I'm thinking of you.

Kelly said...

I'm thinking of you. Take whatever you need for you. Tell muffin man to bake you some tasty treats, and email me anytime if I can be of help.

*smooches*

Kirsten said...

I can barely imagine how much you must be struggling during these last few weeks....you are in the home stretch but I am sure every day that goes by without a referral is pure torture. I can only hope to have one ounce of your strength when we reach the same part of this process. You are amazing! Our thoughts are with you every day.

Danielle said...
