Yesterday was an emotionally heavy day -- several situations that I can't blog about that don't pertain to my family -- after a horrible morning of defiance from Tony and a huge fight between He and Dominyk.... followed by calls from school because a child called a teacher the B word but of course it's the teachers fault because "I don't like her." AAAUGH.
I went to bed completely exhausted and then didn't sleep well.... I'm glad that yesterday is over.
We still haven't heard anything about the possible addition to our family so I had to email this morning whether that was appropriate or not. I had forgotten how frustrating this situation is and I realized why last night.... we haven't had to wait for a decision since 1999. Since then the kids have been matched with us without any competition or question.... and sometimes before we even had an update started. So waiting to find out if we "win the lottery" is something we have only had to do a couple times in our lives. If you will recall from our book, our first two were foster care placements and the next two (a sibling group) we were matched with 3 hours after our homestudy was completed. So... I'm not used to this!
Anybody else in this stage with me right now?
