Annual inspection in a couple of weeks

Shortly after Valentine's Day, we've got our annual inspection for our adoption process scheduled. We'll talk with the adoption specialist at that time about the pros and cons of pointing people to our profile online -- the obvious "con" is that if we post it on one of our blogs or on one of our Facebook pages, prospective birthparents can track it back to us there, which may create unnecessary drama and emotional turmoil. We're also thinking about expanding our age range, from "infant" to a bit older. Last year, we both hit the 40 year mark, which also apparently is a strike against us from the perspective of prospective birthparents, especially those whose own parents are in their 40's! We're just trying to keep our chins up & have faith. My cousin says there's a baby out there with our names written all over it, which creates an interesting visual for me. I just hope she's right.

Hi, Latharia! Good luck with your annual inspection! Sounds awfully important and stressful. I agree with your sister - you will attract the perfect child for you! Best wishes! :-)

God has a plan for you both and everything will happen the way it is supposed to. I am saying prayers for you both.

I know they're out there, wanting a home, a safe place with someone of their own to love them.
It's a painful wait--for them and for you.
But like others, I have hope for you and for that kiddo.

(((( you and him ))))

Hang in there...believe....
