Waiting - the name of the Adoption Game

Dottie and I decided a good couple of months ago to adopt. We knew then that we would have to wait until she started back to work in order for us to have the money. We first had to wait for her to get a new teaching job (she hadn't worked since we moved to North Carolina in October). Fortunately, that wait really didn't take to long. Then the wait began for the first paycheck. We knew that we would have to wait for that check just to begin the adoption process. Well, that first check is still about a week away. It seems that the closer the date gets for us to get that check, the longer it is taking to get here. Each day seems to be a little longer. To think that this is just the beginning of many, many waiting periods. I don't do well waiting (Dottie, is even worse but don't tell her I said so).
