Reflecting on a Year Gone By
We’ve been truly involved in the adoption world for about a year now.
It was about this time last year that we went to the mandatory adoption class. And it was this time last year when we first told anyone we were planning to adopt when we asked our references to speak on our behalf. And just about a year since we started the formal adoption process and submitted our first set of paperwork and try to figure out the adoption process.
It’s amazing to think how much we’ve gone through just in relation to adoption. I cannot believe it’s only been a year.
Adoption seems to be like a marathon. You know the outcome will be worth it, yet you have to keep pushing yourself to get through it.
Waiting is hard work. Waiting for paperwork to be approved. Waiting for home study appointments. Waiting for agencies to review. Waiting for money to transfer. Waiting to be chosen. Waiting for a match. Waiting for baby to be born. Waiting for paperwork to be signed. Waiting to go home.
I hate waiting.
