Not Fair

So, I have been very busy at work for the last couple of weeks, and there really is no news as far as the adoption goes. I have been reading some of the other blogs from awaiting parents, and have been surprised to see that there has been a lot going on in the past few weeks! It seems that three of the couples has been contacted by a potential birthmother. I was excited to read their news, but was surprised that all three of them had pretty recently 'gone live', really in the last month! And I know how excited and nervous and scared they probably all are, and they are unsure if this is 'the one', but we have been waiting for over 8 months and not a peep. Is our email address correct on everything? Does our 1-800 number really work? Of course feeling this way, makes me feel guilty for feeling this way, but it makes you start to wonder "what's wrong with us?" I know, there are many couple who have been waiting or waited longer than us, but it really starts to feel like we are being picked last in gym class! To sum up, I am 98% happy and excited to read their great news, but there is that 2%, that just wants to cry out "not fair!"

Our agency was recently featured on KCAL 9 news. Here is the spot!
I hope everyone has a lovely Valentine's Day.
