Unhappy adoption news

Our agency finally gave us a time estimate. They expect that we will travel to pick up our daughter in the spring of 2015.

I can't believe it's taking so long. When I first received the email, I was in disbelief. Then I was angry. Then I cried. Then I was angry. Then I cried.

I feel I am grieving for the loss of another year with my child. If our agency's estimate is correct, we are missing another birthday. Another Christmas. Another Thanksgiving. Another year passes without her having a mom and dad.

It's upsetting. I want her to come home.

I am sorry. How horrible for your daughter to be alone, when there is a family that wants her. Is there anyone to write to, to perhaps expedite things?

That is just crazy! How could they possibly justify taking that long?

Hang in there, God's got this! God knows the desire of your heart.

What is taking so long? I have a wait . Estimated we will adopt our daughter in January but based on our other two adoptions everything is on Hod's timeline it seems. Our agency has an orphanage partnership and visited children that were matched in addition to meeting more children to match with families. How long has your wait been thius far? I am praying for you to keep your heart strong!
