We're Learning How to Roll with these Fall-Throughs

We have had another adoption fall-through.

On Thursday, as Joe was home recuperating from knee surgery, we received a call from our adoption agency. They said a woman named Jamie had chosen us to be adoptive parents of her baby boy, due on Saturday. We were thrilled.

Since then, however, Jamie has cut off all contact with the agency and has disappeared. When her cousin told the caseworker that she didn't know where Jamie was and couldn't get a hold of her either, we were told that we were officially being placed back in the queue.

So here we are... After five days of thinking a new baby might be in our very near future, we find ourselves waiting once again.

Patience is a virtue; I keep telling myself that. :)
