The TA Window

Boy was I hoping my cell phone would ring today and America World would be on the line. But alas it did not. We did not get that highly hoped for 'TA Call'. The window of opportunity for us to travel on February 28th is quickly closing. If we don't hear on Monday, it looks like we'll have to wait until March 6th or later.

Waiting for our referral was hard. But now I realize like all the other BTDT (been-there-done-that) folks - once you have a face to go with the name, a defined person who is your child -waiting for approval to travel is akin to torture! Maybe that seems overly dramatic to you. But I can hardly stand the thought of going through another day without our Noelle. We are missing so much of her life. I just want my daughter NOW!!!

(Lord, forgive me. As You well know, patience never was my strong suit.)

Amen! I am in your shoes and totally understand how you are feeling. We first saw our daughter's face in October...this wait for TA is the hardest part...praying a huge batch of SN TA's will come in so we can all travel together!

Hi Jen,
I'm in the same boat and hoping right along with you for those TA's to come this week!

Hi Girls!

I'm praying for God's BIG miracles for all of us! That He would unite many children with many families and that we would see His hand at work. Lord, please hasten the day when You bring Your chosen children for us, into our waiting arms.
