So I haven't been on here in a long time, because we got on the list with our adoption agency a year and a half ago. Our way of coping with the waiting was to just not think about it, except once a month when we got our update email that updates us on our spot on the list. Well, this month we jumped up 5 spots (normal is 2)! We've landed in the teens, and there are people who have been placed in the teens. We're super excited, we're thinking that we may get our call in 3-9 months. We've been trying to become parents (by many different methods) for the last 4 years. I just wanted to share with others who understand what we're going through!

Congrats on the progress! It sounds like your agency is making a fair number of placements for you to move up the list so quickly. I hope you get THE CALL soon!

HOORAY!!!!!!!! This is exciting news!!!!!! Sorry, but remind me again, are you hoping to adopt internationally or domestically? Just wondering because our own family has done both.

KEEP US UDPATED!!!!!!!!!

Sincerely,

Linny

Thanks! :smile We're adopting domestically. Our agency is doing really well, they usually average 40 placements per year, but they did 16 in just January and February! Sounds like our number will change again when we get our update email the beginning of April. We're so excited!

Best of luck!! :shamrock

Rori, there is no way to know how long the wait is. For some it is a month, for others years. There are so many factors, and if there is one thing you can be sure of, it is that adoption is a lesson in giving up control. It is humbling on so many levels.

I hope that you find 2012 to be your year of amazement!! :smile
