The greatest experience, the one which shakes a soul with hopes and fears, the results of which are never ending, and incidentally, the one which pays the biggest dividends, is to be found in the adoption of children.

Waiting



There have been moments in my life when I wished time would stand still...........and then, there is this moment. At this moment, I am so anxiously waiting to hear some news, any news, of the most recent meetings between the US and Guatemala concerning adoptions. The US group was in meetings in Guatemala Monday and Tuesday last week and arrived home one week ago today. Now tell me, how long should it take to gather thoughts, information, facts and statistics and put it all together into a message for the hundreds of families who are waiting???? In my opinion...............one week is plenty of time.

Have you ever heard that song, "While I'm Waiting," by John Waller? Christian song, and it totally describes the situation you had.

I agree with you. The feeling of anxiety that waiting causes is definitely not the best feeling in the world. It is sad to know that millions of families wait for answers while sometimes representative of the country do not put all effort and hard work to solve the problem in a timely manner. Best.
