The Doldrums

While I was taking my shower (seriously, I do my best thinking in the shower. Not in a bath. Don't know why, that's just the way it is) I got to thinking that I am in the adoption doldrums.

definition:
Noun
the doldrums
1. b. a state of inactivity
2.
a. A region of the ocean near the equator, characterized by calms, light winds, or squalls.

It makes me think of sailors that are stuck out to sea with no wind, but they are most definitely still in the process of their journey.

That's where we are with the adoption. Stuck in the middle of the journey with no wind.

It's really hard to keep our spirits up when we feel like we aren't getting anywhere. There seems to be nothing to do but wait.

I think the muppets really get at the heart of what we feel...
