I'm still chapped that the process is managed to as to appear so random to those of us on the outside. A simple statment to the effect that "We have had an unusually low number of adoptive children in the system for August and don't anticipate that this will continue" on the horrible but official CCAA website could have made this a lot less painful for a lot of families hoping for news of their child-to-be.
When I remember the terrible week in 2002 when we lost our daughter Bryn Rose, I realize that as bad as this wait can be, it's just that - bad. It's not a tragedy. It's not the End of The World.
Been there. Done that.
So. Back to waiting.
