Waiting is hard…
As we write this, we know that we are number 10 on the waiting list still with the adoption agency. This number 10 means there are still 10 families ahead of us waiting to begin their process of adoption. So this means that before us, there will be 10 people that will get to begin working with the agency to reach the ultimate goal of adopting a child. There are 10 families waiting ahead of us to be completed.
So we are waiting…and we will continue waiting.
Waiting is not necessarily a bad thing. Waiting means we have more time to prepare financially and continue to fundraise to reach our ultimate goal. Since we are getting close to the holiday season, we will be launching a few “end of the year” fundraisers including an online auction (perfectly timed for people to get their Christmas shopping done) and also a bake sale, because who doesn’t like baked goods in the fall?
We were told by the agency that we should be moving up the list soon, but that doesn’t guarantee that things move faster anytime soon either. In the mean time we will just continue waiting.
