Waiting Place

After the past few months of updating our home study, getting papers signed and our house inspected (fire, county code, AND social worker) we are only sitting here waiting for something to happen.  There is nothing to further the process at this point.  Waiting to see a slight rumor on my adoption boards and then wait for a phone call.
I think my brain is getting antsy.  All I want to do is sit and think of names (no boy name yet).  I want to check again and see if anyone out in adoption world heard anything.  More adoption books are coming, they can't get here fast enough.  I need something to do.  Oh, like focus on trying to teach my kids though the day?  It's hard, especially days like today when its snowing and they just want to be outside all day.  I want need this referral to come before I go see my family in 3 weeks.       

Oh the Places You Will Go

...Headed, I fear, toward the most useless place.
The Waiting Place
 for people just waiting.
Waiting for a train to go
or a bus to come or a plane to go
or the mail to come or the rain to go
or the phone to ring or the snow to snow
or waiting around for a Yes or No
or waiting for their hair to grow.
Everyone is just waiting.
