High Strung

I'm sure there are a lot of other prospective adoptive parents feeling the way I am today...impatient.  Though fairly confident about the outcome, my nerves are strung pretty tightly waiting to see if BDO Dunwoody communicates anything today about whether Imagine has enough committed families to enable us to proceed with our adoptions.  On the yahoo forum for Canadians adopting from Ethiopia, a good point was made about families having until the end of the day today to submit their retainers/fees - which means, I suppose, that we'll likely have to wait until tomorrow or (heaven forbid) the next day to hear any formal news.  But somehow, in my head, I've had today in mind as being d-day.  Surely if they'd reached the requisite 200 by Friday, they would be ready to go with an announcement today already...wouldn't they?????


  1. yup, I'm getting more and more high strung each time my blackberry buzzes...especially since it always seems to be people talking about how high strung they are :)

    It'll all be positive, and it will seem like a small bump in the road after today... Bring on the children...

  2. Ruth,
    I am hear with everyone else waiting waiting,
    trying to pass the time......
    off to costco to kill another hour, ( it is my day off so it is going even slower, but now I have a clean tupperwear draw etc , anything to pass some time that does not require much thinking power )
    I am pretty sure we wont hear yet
    but how sweat the good news will be
    ( it will be good news , it has to be )

    Hold tight
    getting closer ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
