The Adoption Roller Coaster Continues

This past week has been a crazy roller coaster. The hair care class we took last week was a real high point for me. I enjoyed the class and felt great about speaking with the director. Then the weekend hit and it was a very low point for me. Now we are back up at a high point because we are being profiled!

It's for a baby in Nebraska!

Our adoption agency called this afternoon and went over all the details with us. I stopped her and said, "Did you say Nebraska?" I was very surprised. We are usually called for cases in New York. Occasionally there are some in Indiana. Never Nebraska.

But, hey, if we get chosen, I will be more than happy to go to Nebraska!!

The baby is due June 14.

All the profiles were sent via Fed Ex around 6 this evening. I am hoping we will hear a decision by Friday, but most likely we won't be hearing anything until next week. Although she doesn't have too much time to decide because that baby is coming soon!!

This whole process is so emotionally draining. All the ups and downs. Just when you feel like giving up, the process forces you forward and you find yourself going through a whole new series of ups and downs.

Adam keeps reminding me not to get my hopes up. I started to say it would be fun to take a road trip to Nebraska and he interupted me and told me not to get my hopes up. Pretty much everytime I open my mouth tonight, he tells me not to get my hopes up.

I can't help it!!!

  15. Over from L&F, I am sorry that it is taking so long to find a match. Although, I truly believe that when it's the right situation, things will just fall into place, I also know that have the right people working for you is also key. I don't know anything about your agency, but we worked with a wonderful attorney and agency and we were holding our daughter within three months. Feel free to email me, I would be happy to give you names and #s. Good luck and best wishes. (missellie123@hotmail.com)
