so we went to go check out an adoption agency yesterday. none too thrilled over here. i was really hoping that this would be the place. but we just didn't "feel it" ya know? so i guess that is a good thing because at least we know that we do not want to go through them. its just frustrating. i feel discouraged. i was really hoping that this would be the place. but apparently its not. at least we both agree on this. i think what i am learning is the discouraging factor is the timeline for everything. i know that it is going to take a while. its just annoying. i mean we have already waited 3 years and the thought of waiting another 2 years to get matched up with a birth mom or an infant is just really disappointing. but i know that we need it to possibly be that long to find the perfect match or at least the best match for us. it all makes sense, its just frustrating after you have been waiting so long to find out that you have to wait even longer. i feel this way not just for me but for others who go through this process as well. i just pray that GOD continues to guide us in the right direction. that HE gives us peace and comfort. that HE lets us know that the reason there is only one set of footprints is because HE is carrying us through this journey. i know that HE is. i know that HE always will. i just pray that we find "the agency" and that we get through "the hoops" and get "chosen" and the process gets "finalized" quickly.
your thoughts and advice are welcome. please share.
