Waiting, Waiting

If there is anyone in the ALI world who is considering adoption but has little to no patience, then foster/adoption is NOT the path to take!

This could probably be said about any adoption path, but I only have experience with this one. It definitely could be said about fertility treatment, but then there often seemed to be something happening when we were actually doing treatment. There was always something to track or a fairly concrete this-is-what-we're-doing-next-and-when-we're-doing-it plan. Or, at least that's what I thought it was. Looking back, it wasn't actually like that, which kind of invalidates my point now, but I'm gonna pretend I didn't come to that realization, lol!

Anyway, back to the foster/adoption wait. Needless to say, I am not the most patient person. We are 4 days away from the first anniversary of the beginning of our adoption journey. While we have progressed significantly by completing our homestudy, I still have no idea when we'll have a child placed with us.

It's a little disheartening.

I'll be so glad when we get the call that we are officially approved and can start visiting with our child. So ready to get this show on the road!

You'd think that with all the kids out there needing a solid and loving family home there would be some action. I empathize with you guys. Damn bureaucracies! Nevertheless, one day you WILL get that call and tears of joy will fall, You two will look back on the journey and consider it well worth the wait.

Cheers!

Oh, yes. There come points in the adoption journey where there is nothing left to DO except wait.

Which is sometimes the hardest task of all.

Abiding with you during your wait.

I hope you get the call soon, the waiting is the hardest part. When the call comes, it will be that much more wonderful!
