What now?

The question of "what now"not only applies to what should we write about today on the blog but what should we do.  The hard part isn't the waiting but the wondering.  We understand the process will take time and are patiently waiting but is that all we should be doing?  It seems like we should be always working on things to help us be prepared to adopt but when do we just live our lives and wait?  The trick will be to continue to live each day as a hopeful adoptive couple in waiting and have that just be who we are.  It is hard to just live life normally because we feel as if we aren't dedicated enough or caring enough about our adoption process.  The truth is there is only so much we can do to prepare and then after that we just have to wait and be ready for whatever may come.
