And, we’re active

5 Jun

Nearly two months after our family profile was completed by the design specialist, we have activated with our placement agency. Phew. That was a long time coming and during that period our profile was not being shown to anyone. As of yesterday afternoon, our profile is live on the site and we can be included in profile books sent out to EBMs (expectant birth moms).

This in between time has been hard because, even though we’d done all we could do, no one could see our profile when choosing the family to adopt their child. The hardest parts are yet to come – the agonizing wait for a match and then the anxious days and weeks leading up to placement – but at least all of that is moving toward building our family rather than being stuck in a state of paperwork / contract limbo.

Wish us luck!

    I wish you both all of the luck in the world! :)

    I don’t always comment, but I’ve been reading all of your posts and I’m so excited for you guys. You are going to make great parents!

      Thanks, Girly Bitz! We’re really excited and it’s nice to know we have so much support out there in the world. Maybe I’ll see you at the end of he month. I’m still trying to figure out if we can make it. I can’t believe it’s been 20 years. Doesn’t make anys sense since we’re only 28 now.

    I’m so excited for you! I just read the whole profile (because I’m a dork!). The profile captures you guys pretty well. I can’t wait to see you in a few weeks… maybe there will even be some activity to share on the new profile :)

      Thanks, Suz. We can’t wait to see you. It would be exciting if we have news to share … but don’t count on it that fast. ;-)

    This is a HUGE step, and I’m so excited for you guys!! There’s so much to love about you two, and I know that the right birth mom is going to find her way to you and feel the peace and love she’s looking for in a family for her baby.

      It IS huge. Now I just hope the call come quickly … but I know it will likely be many, many months. Thanks for your support, Heather. I love seeing your family updates. Any exciting plans for Father’s Day next weekend?
