It's October. We are still waiting to hear from the surgeon at Sick Kids. Originally, Brennyn's first operation was to be in the summer, then September, now we don't know. I am so happy that she is being seen by such a well known specialist, but I'm not so happy that this is taking so long. It's a double edge sword in a way since the best has so many other more urgent cases that bump us out (for a good reason, just stinks to be waiting for almost a year).

We are also still waiting on the genetic testing. I think I have found the answer to my questions on that end. It still would be beneficial to have the genetic results for a concrete answer. I have been fortunate to "chat" with another mom whose daughter seems to have a similar condition as Brennyn. Unfortunately, it is a very difficult syndrome to diagnose.

Time passes so quickly, but I feel like we are stuck in this waiting game. I don't think I'm very patient anymore. I want the best for my daughter and I would really like some answers for her sake!

On another note, I finally sent a letter and some pictures to Avery's birth family in China. I should have included a return envelope but didn't think of that at the time. I'm crossing my fingers that they receive the package and respond.
