I am in an odd place --emotionally speaking-- at the moment. On one hand, we are starting to glimpse a dim light at the end of the (long) tunnel, but I still feel so much in limbo, not knowing when we will see LK's face and begin planning our trip to bring her home. I get all excited one minute, only to come crashing down the next when I think about the worst-case scenario, and how long we might still have to wait.
About mid-month, I start to think about the next batch of referrals, and despite my best efforts, I am once again stalking Rumor Queen, trying to find something - anything - out. It is so unbelievable to me that we are going to pass the two-year mark before we travel to China. I just wish there was some way to know for sure when it will happen, to have an answer when people ask "Any news?", and look puzzled when I say "Not yet", for the umpteenth time. Any information is better than none, even the kind we don't want to hear, and I just wish we knew something concrete.
