This week, we found out that the doctors were considering inducing M and we began making earnest pre-plans to travel.  At this point, we are (mostly) packed, have a few different travel plans to choose from, have a few different hotel options to consider, have carseat arrangements figured out… but the doctors have decided to give her at least another week before talking about inducing again.  the good news is that during this, our communication levels have increased and I’ve had the opportunity to say some important things (via text still, sigh, but at least they’ve been SAID) to M and she’s said some important things to me as well.  Despite not meeting yet in person, she is not a complete stranger to me.

Today has seen some rushy-frustrating details pop up with our adoption agency which would require us (maybe) to do some of our paperwork hoop-jumping AGAIN (not through any fault of our own) and I’m trying very hard not to get all tied up in knots about it.  Because we weren’t sure if we’d have to drop everything and fly to Texas today, I’d let us run out of milk and a few other essentials, so tonight i stopped by the grocery store.  as i made my way around the perimeter of the store, still mumbling to myself about the injustices of the day, i slowly realized that the song being played on the store’s sound system was “Hold On” by Wilson Phillips.  First of all, it was enough of a pleasant-memory-flashback song that it put a smile on my face immediately.  Then, I listened to the lyrics and decided it was a sign that I needed to just be patient.

“Don’t you know things can change
Things’ll go your way
If you hold on for one more day
Can you hold on for one more day
Things’ll go your way
Hold on for one more day”

tomorrow is a new day.  let’s see what it will bring.

Signs can come from anywhere, huh? That waiting is hard, hard, hard. Thinking of you!
