Excited and scared about this journey! — The Bump

Excited and scared about this journey!

Hello everyone- 

My husband and I are new to this whole process and very overwhelmed I have to say! We found a great (hopefully) agency and have signed up for our pre-adoption seminar July 12-13. Then we move on to our application/intake interview approximately two weeks later and hopefully our home study soon after. They feel that we will be ready to be shown to birthmothers starting around October.

I have to honestly say that I am not the most patient person in the world, so this is really going to be a challenge for me... I keep trying to remind myself that it can take months (or sometimes years) just to get pregnant, then 9 more months after that. I am not usually a believe of "fate", but that is really how I feel about this whole process- that "fate" will bring us the baby that we are supposed to have when we are supposed to meet them.

I am amazed, encouraged, and honored to be part of such an amazing community here on The Bump. The strength and support that you all seem to show each other is wonderful, and I hope to be part of that. If anyone has any words of advice to share, please do...

 Thank you for taking the time to read my post :-)

  • welcome and good luck!
    Married on 3.20.2004. It took 30 month, 2 failed adoptions and IVF for our first miracle. We have had 9 foster kids since he was born and started the domestic adoption process when he was 10 month old, we had 4 failed matches in that time. After our daughter was born we brought her home and spent 2 weeks fearing we might lose her because of complications that came up. But Praise God all went through and she is ours forever!
