I got an e-mail from our adoption specialist today asking us if they could show our profile to an EM. Mom has hep c and is on daily methadone (120mg). I was excited, but there is no budging on the match money which is $40,000. We have already paid $10,000 for the activation fee, home study ($2,000) and $1,600 for our profile and video. Our max limit to spend on the match is $35,000 and as much as I would love to say yes, we put a limit and told each other we would stick with it. Just got excited for a moment, but I have to be realistic and stick to our plan. I just hope we are not missing out on a potential match. I wasn't able to discuss it with hubby since he left on a short military exercise for the next 3 weeks and is out to sea. The agency needs a response by tomorrow. I just needed to share with someone. Thanks.
