Long Week

Okay, Friends…not much good to write about today. It’s been a very long week. I’ve had a migraine since Sunday (it was so bad yesterday it forced me home 15 minutes into the school day).

Our computer is dead, as is our internet access, so I’m offline unless I’m at school.

I’m reading “Inside Transracial Adoption” and now I’m thinking to myself, “What have I gotten into? Can I really parent an African-American child? Will I totally suck as a mother?”

Hubby’s responses: we know what we’re doing, yes and no, respectively.

At least he’s amazing and wonderful!

I’m waiting and not very well. We haven’t heard anything new from the lawyer or S, but I expect that’s how it’s going to go for the next 4 months. I just want it to be January already!!

Anyway…I’m super excited Erica had a great trip to meet her BM, and people are being matched left & right it seems.

I’m still praying for RB and her decision making. If you pray, you might send up a little prayer for her, as well.

There’s really a ton of stuff I want to write about, but the computer screen hurts my eyes and I get to go home from school in like 30 minutes. Yea!

I hope everyone has a GREAT weekend!!

One thought on “Long Week

  1. I hear you, Girl…nothing about this process is easy, least of all the waiting.

    I haven't read “Inside Transracial Adoption” yet, but I was thinking of it. What are your thoughts on the book as a resource? Because of how quickly our situation happened, I'm behind on my library collection but I'm looking for a few select books to buy.

    I am currently reading “Black Baby White Hands” right now, and it's a good book but also hard to read when you're coming from our perspective. Definitely makes you think.

    Still, while it's normal to have doubts, I highly doubt you are going to “totally suck as a mother!” At least you are aware of some of the issues, and trying to become educated. That's A LOT more than many same-race parents can say.
