Well, I thought I would update you on our last "situation" as our social worker calls them. Turns out that the birthmother had not told her family that she was 5 months pregnant. They actually found out when our profile was on it's way to Knoxville. They stepped up and she is going to parent. I am trying to stay positive but we have just about hit the 9 month mark of waiting and I am starting to become disenchanted with the process. It doesn't help that I don't agree with the way the agency is going to begin showing profiles. It's like some wild possibility that looms out there - that we might actually have a baby someday - but the truth is, in actuality, there really is no guarantee that we will ever be chosen.
