So I posted here a few times awhile ago, back when we were just strongly considering pursuing adoption.
I have lurked here pretty often since then, and we did begin the adoption process. We filed out application and were accepted into the program, but there is a very long wait list to even get in for the homestudy classes. We're being told it's about 18 months at this point, but that could of course change. We know that this is going to be a long and difficult wait, but we're happy to have set a course for ourselves instead of waiting any longer.
I just wanted to let you all know that your stories and experiences played a large part in getting comfortable with our decision.
Anyway, nothing else of value to add besides that I might be asking a lot of questions in the coming year.
