Still Waiting...

for the medical to be done.

We thought it was done, because we were told it was, only to then be told it wasn't.

Fffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt......

That is the sound made when your balloon of hope slowly deflates.

We know we are lucky to be where we are and that it will happen but it just seems like the "will happen" part keeps getting pushed back.

Just when we think we will be able to reach out and finally hold him.....roadblock.

So, we wait for results from a test to come back....a doctor being thorough for his sake which we appreciate....hard nonetheless.

He is well. He is not sick. Still a delay while a question is answered.

Hence my lack of blog posts.

I find it a battle these days to write anything.

So when we know "What is the What?" we will let you know.

Until then we are taking a break, going for long walks and dreaming of our boy.

Dream away girl, cause dreams do come true! You frustration is so warranted and the randomness of these frickin' visas is beyond understandable.

Always around, but you know that already.

I can't even begin to imagine the daily struggles of waiting only to find out what you were waiting for is not the right thing. I look everyday hoping today is your day and keep hoping that it will happen soon for you all. The only bit of encouragement I can sent this morning is that your son is so close to coming home, and your love for him will allow you to find the strenght to keep going and eventually hold him tight in your arms. Sending hungs.

This is so hard to watch from the outside, I can only imagine how hard it is for you. {{{hugs}}}

Tova said...

This post made me cry. With frustration. I'm so sorry. You must be sick of hearing that.

Hot showers and rescue remedy???

Liz said...

Oh, I am so sorry there are more delays! Stay strong...

boltupright said...

oh those medicals... seriously... the angst that hundreds of families have had over that piece of paper. There is just no rhyme or reason to it.

Tova's idea sounds good... just throw some chocolate in there too. :)

Dianne said...

I'm feeling just sick for you. That is the most PG thing I can find to write just now. Sending hugs and prayers your way.

Lisa and Jason said...

Oh yuck. . . I'm so sorry. Those stinkin medicals. . . I've come to hate that single piece of paper.

Thinking of you.

Janice said...

Oh Rana, your post just made me really sad. Just know that I am in your corner and always hoping that the day will soon come when you can go and get him.

Karen said...

Oh I'm so sorry Rana. I thought you were "this close". I know it'll be soon, but, still, this so greatly sucks. Geesh.

Rana,
Sigh. Double Sigh!
What disheartening news.
Wish I had something wise and useful to say. But, I've got nothing.
I do believe you deserve a break.
I also believe Ade will come home to you.
Sending my best for continued strength.

Tammy said...

You've got to be fricking kidding me!!!!!! This is absolutely RIDICULOUS! Get this child into the arms of his parents! COME ON ALREADY!

shauna said...

Oh Rana, What???? C'mon already people, Ade needs to be home with his Mom & Dad!
Sending hugs and prayers!!!! Ade is coming home!

Ramona said...

Ok. You've got me in tears here too. How on earth can this happen??? Either they are done or get them done. So is this another lost medical or what? Where oh where do these medicals go after they have been done? Because there is a pretty large pile of "missing medicals" from the last months!

Oh hang in there both you guys and Ade. This has to come to an end (and it can- we're home 6 months now!)

Ramona

Alex said...

Oh Rana ... it is just not flipping fair and I can't believe you have to deal with more *$%#ups. Sending you all my positive energy (maybe it will work for you - it didn't for me!!!). Stay sane, and please be a thorn in the sides of those things in Manitoba.

emily and mike said...

Brutal! This sucks Rana, delays are no fun. I'm so sorry : ( I hope it is completed very very soon.

Anonymous said...

Hi Rana - I wondered where you were. The road blocks are exhausting...that's for sure! I truly hope the waiting ends for you very soon.
Hugs my friend!

turgeonexpansion said...

Just a (((((((HUG)))))))) and a mental cup of tea from me to you.

Carolyn said...

Not even sure what else I can say at this point. Rana- this is just total crap and that is all there is to it. Here for you always!

Karen said...

oh sick! I keep thinking you are so close to travel it could be any day... bummer! NO FAIR! When you've already had such horribly long waits for everything, it sure would be nice to have one part of the process go "relatively" quick.

Praying for strength for you all...

Hi Rana -
Just wanted to say hi, and to thank you for checking out my blog, and leaving such a lovely and compassionate comment there. I'm glad to read your blog, too, though it sounds like you've also had a long and hard journey through this adoption maze.
I do hope that your son's medical is done soon so that you can get this thing going again.

BLessings,

Ruth

gablynn said...

That just sucks, come on already, enough with the freaking delays. It is time for Ade can come home. (((Hugs)))

Heavy sigh...

Claudia said...

Oh Rana, I'm so so sorry to read this. Thinking of you.

Sharla said...

I think the deflating balloon is a fitting sound to accompany this post...well maybe a room full of deflating balloons! You guys have had such a long road that it's hard to believe that there has been another setback or disappointment.

When you bring Ade home and there are balloons at the airport to welcome him, there will be no deflating those!

Janna said...

I really hope this is all resolved for you shortly - you've been waiting SO LONG!

Rowan Family Tree said...

Errgg... how frustrating!!!!!!!!

Hey Rana, you have been a great supporter of Faya Orphanage in the past. Would you please consider posting this video to your blog, to solicit sponsor for Vulnerable Children Society, Faya Orphanage's new partner organization?

Really appreciate it!!!

Oh Rana... I'm sending all the strength I have your way. Good grief this is getting past the point of ridiculous. This little man NEEDS to get home to you!!!

I am thinking of you all the time Rana. Can't wait to hear the words "Ade is coming home!!" It will happen.
love Natasha

Janice said...

I've been feeling a wee bit deflated myself these days. I know others (like yourself) have waited even longer than us so I REALLY feel for you guys. I love the balloon analogy.
