failed match and (cat death mentioned)

Yes, again.

In 1.5 months times we have experienced the nightmare of 2 failed adoption matches. This SUCKS. Long story on this one I will save for another day.

Our last kitty, Gizmo, is in heaven. She was 14 years old, a great kitty companion, but sick. We had to put her down tonight.She could not hold her bladder. She meowed in pain when I would pick her up, although still purring. My heart breaks when you have to put a pet down when you know they have some sanity left of their minds, but her body was failing her.

I'm going to bed early. This day sucks

I hope things will look up for you very soon.

Thanks Phoenix! I had a smile on my face looking through the Gizmo pictures on my pc. I love her and always will. I am glad she has a mate up in pet heaven to play with. I also know that one day I will post a very GOOD post introducing our baby through adoption.... just hope it happens sooner than later.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Gizmo looks like a great cat.

What a horrible time to have a failed match. I do hope that things turn around soon. It's high time for some good news to come your way.

I have had 2 failed matches also! Trying to hang in there, but it sucks the big one! The Gods of Parenthood keep crapping on me. Wasn't adoption supposed to be a "sure thing?"

Oh, this does suck big time! I am so frustrated for you!

Here's to hoping that the 3rd time's the charm!!!

I'm so sorry about having to face such heartache. Funny that I should find you today when I'm also having a tough day deal with the issues of adoption. I hope to continue to visit you and wish that things would turn themselves around for both of us.

Thinking of you...

Thank you all so much. In my heart I know we will be parents through adoption, but the waiting is hard the roller coaster ride SUCKS and I am sick of the feeling of puking from the down turns on the ride. Emotionally I am just glad we will not be in limbo for another 2.5 months until delivery. I take all of your support as my pillar of strength to not give up hope. Sure, I will have my moments of crying jags, hopeless fears, bad dreams, and anger, BUT I will keep looking forward to that day to when we do have a match that turns into a placement. Being successful is a dream and I want it to become a reality soon. I WILL NOT GIVE UP HOPE. DH WILL NOT GIVE UP HOPE. We are due for some good news. This black cloud over our heads has to disappear soon. VERY SOON. Thank you all for being here for us.
