With our newest delay, I came to a bit of a standstill. I bummed around some last week no longer thinking about traveling in the near future and letting slide my list of “Things to do Before Matthew Comes Home”.
I still have no resolution. There is a communication breakdown going on between my agency and the ICPC person who wants the medical tests done. Not for lack of trying on my agency’s part. The one bright spot is that the head of the Korea program from my agency will be traveling to Korea on Wednesday, and I am hoping that she can get this straightened out quickly while she is there. Wait and see, wait and see.
Meanwhile, something clicked in me yesterday and despite the setback, my nesting instinct kicked in. I started finishing lots of little projects on my Matthew list that had been hanging over my head for weeks. And today I ran into 2 people who asked me when we would be bringing Matthew home, and I found myself saying, “by Thanksgiving!”.
Mother’s instinct? Wishful thinking? Pure faith? A little of all 3 maybe. Let’s hope I’m right.
