Retail therapy

Oh, this wait!  It's terrible!  Have I told you that I'm not a patient person?  Well, I'm not!  Keep in mind, everyone and their brother has gotten their LOA by now and I'm just sitting by, watching their progress.  It sucks!  And I hate it!  And I want to whine and cry and stamp my feet until I get my way!  And I have done all of those things (well, not the stamping but maybe I'll try it) but to no avail.  Ah, I can't do a darn thing and it sucks!  So, how do you cope with the ridiculous waiting?  Well, I could say that I clean my house until it's spotless or take out my frustration by exercising or something...ya know, productive but I don't do those things.  I like to indulge in some retail therapy.  Let's face it, our poor little Liana has nothing and in her 21 months has never had one possession that she can call her own.  Sad, right?  Well, I have fixed that problem!  She now has a closet full of new and adorable clothes and a whole bunch of toys.  Now, if I could only get her to them....

Here are some of my favorites

And don't worry, this is just a tiny sample of what she now has!  I do think my way of coping is productive, though.  I mean, the girl needs stuff right?!

Day 97, waiting for our LOA....


  1. I sure hope it comes for you soon. I heard list weeks are slow with LOA's but they flood in the week following:) Hoping yours will be one of them.

  2. You bet she needs stuff! Even more, she needs the wonderful mommy and daddy and sister and brother she will soon get! It will be soon, even though it doesn't feel like it now. Having said that, however, I really DO think there is value in "retail therapy"! You must get such a lift from going in her room, and picturing her in those darling outfits, playing with all those toys, and finding out what it's like to have her very own loving family--finally. It WILL happen, maybe not as soon as you wish, but SOON! Can't wait til it does! I love you all very much. Mom

  3. Love all that stuff! So cute! I am sure the LOA will come soon although I know it is so hard to wait for something you want so badly. I am praying for you guys!!
