This is the question people have been asking us lately. I think our friends and family are feeling as impatient as we are! Well, not much is going on, but here’s a quick update for those inquiring minds.
We’ve shown our book to 2 expectant mothers so far, and neither one chose us to parent their child. We were officially “in the pool” in early July, that puts us at about 6 months in right now. So if we are consistent with the agency’s timeline of 3-12 months to be matched, we should find our birth mother within the next 6 months.
We are constantly feeling a strange mix of excitement, anticipation, hope, confusion, and disappointment. What a wild journey this has been so far! We are still feeling optimistic most of the time and are looking forward to meeting our mystery child. We’re also very anxious to know when it will actually happen.
I want to thank all of you who inquire about our progress and have given us support through this whole crazy thing. Here’s to good news in ’09!
