We are so excited that our Home Study write up is (finally) on its way! I was thrilled to see the email that it had been put in the mail, because it means that we have cleared one more hurdle! Now, our next hurdle will be the first view of our profile. It’s so difficult to know what to wish for. On one hand, I can’t wait to get the call or email that we’ve been chosen as the parents of another child, but on the other hand, it’s hard to not think of the pain that his or her biological parents will be feeling. Prior to beginning this journey, I never thought about the loss associated with adoption. By this loss, I mean the loss of a child for the biological parents, and the loss of biological parents for our future child. However, I believe that things in life have a way of working out the way that they are supposed to work out.
