My Dream

Now, I'm starting to have crazy dreams...thanks Robbin.  

I was at a vintage store and this woman, who I have never seen before, walked up to me and said "I heard for sure that we won't have to wait as long as they say for our children to come home."  I said "really, how do you know?"  She said "she spoke with someone from another agency who has a contact at MOWA."  She was writing the name down for me, but she didn't have a piece of paper, so she started writing, with a marker, on an antique tortoise shell plate.  I was looking at her like are you serious but of course I just wanted the information so I didn't stop her.  In the meantime, the owner came over and was very calm about it.  She just sprayed a solution that took the name away...the name was Amy Enfarri or something like that.  She then brought back a nasty mop for us to use to clean up the mess on the plate.  I asked if she had paper towels.  She said "no paper towels were available for vandals, we could use the mop then leave."  Of course we would be banned for life from the store.  I wanted so badly to say BANNED I didn't do the writing, I didn't have the pen in my hand, I don't even know this chick, but I just wanted that number of Amy Enfarri so I didn't say a word...I just waited for the unnamed vandal to finish writing the name on a piece of paper to hand to me.  Then the TV minister woke me up.  

One side of me wants to say this dream is a good sign.  The other side says this dream happened because we have been obsessing about finding every little detail about what is going on and trying to predict how long the wait will really be.  What to do?  What to do?  But, I don't really remember my dreams.  So, I'm going to go with this was a sign and that we will all be grandfathered in and Baby I will be home soon.  

BTW...if you haven't figured it out, I'm checking in from time to time.  I can't leave you guys...so now I have 2 blogs!

Tami, my Mom had a dream about actually seeing my baby. I too had a dream about an Ethiopian baby about a month ago, but it was not my baby and she looked nothing like what my Mom described. I truly believe that our baby girls will be home a lot sooner than we think!

What an awesome dream. I sure hope it's a real sign for you. I'm praying that you and the others will have your dreams come true sooner rather than later.

I found my way to your blog through a google search on ethiopia adoption statistics - anyways - we've just started the process of adopting from Ethiopia too - working on our home study currently - just wanted to say that I read your story and that I have prayed for you - it is strange how not knowing people, just knowing they are adopting from Ethiopia too, really pulls at your heart! I hope you find this email as an encouragement! - April -

April-

Thank you for your prayer, every prayer helps. Please keep in touch and I wish you the best on your adoption. We have a pretty strong community as I'm sure you have found out so WELCOME!

Mickey said...

Good Luck on your adoption!!! I am a single and just beginning the process myself. Hopefully I can still adopt from Ethiopia. From what I have read since you are in the process, you will be successful. I'm praying for you!

Tami said...

Mickey,

Thanks for stopping by! Prayerfully we will all be fine! Keep me abreast of your progress and welcome!

Hi Tami, I followed you over from Haze's blog. I'm so sorry that your process has been terribly set back. Its just heartbreaking.

I'm looking at your timeline - did it take 5 months for your USCIS fingerprints to be approved? We're waiting on this ourselves and it seems like they're just lost out there in space at this point.

Tami said...

No, it didn't take that long for my fingerprints. If I recall I did not mail them immediately. Each state is different but mine came relatively fast in 3-6 weeks I believe. Good luck with everything.

Yes, I'm not very happy about my whole process but I'm trying so hard to remember that this is all for a reason. Who knows what will lay at the end of the two years in addition to my little precious baby girl. Can the time hurry up though!

I couldn't get to your blog though.
