A one-track mind

I'm having trouble concentrating on anything and I'm not sleeping well because I'm very preoccupied with our upcoming court date. It's only nine days away now. That's not very long... but it's like waiting for Christmas when you're a kid, or that last week or two before your due date when you are pregnant. It seems like it will never get here. And, unlike Christmas, we don't know what's going to happen when it does get here. Will we pass or not? If we pass, how long after that until we travel? At this point, we are planning to all go to Ethiopia as a family. So this is weighing heavily on my mind because I have three teenagers with busy schedules to consider. Of course, bringing the twins home is our top priority, but I would hate for our other kids to miss anything important to them. Fret, fret, fret. It's one of the things I do best.

Oh, I remember those feelings....

Also, we took our whole family and it was a great decision for us.

I wanted to comment on your comment. I was totally with you, and started getting a little overwhelmed with adoption reading, and some of the fear it would illicit. I think it is wise to put the books away. But, hey, you know where they are when you need them. The twins have been home 10.5 months and this is the first time I cracked open an adoption book since our referral.

I also want to add that when issues are addressed in the books, they often seem really daunting, but when you actually face them head on, they are much more manageable (but we haven't had too many issues, so this is a definite humble opinion).

Take care as you wait "patiently" for court.
