This is so disapointing

I just talked to our agency and the waits are getting longer. They put us getting a little girl at a few month longer wait now. Even though we are at the top of the list. I have heard they give the worst case scenarios, but I can't seem to wrap my mind around that right now. I just want to sit with my grief. I don't know how I will do this until February or March. I am so ready to snap with the wait at our 6 month mark/ 13 month journey. They originally told us 4-6 months. Now they are telling me 8-10 months. This is so hard.


  1. ugh. this stinks. i totally understand. we were first told 4-6 months, but most likely 4. then we were told 8 months. then right before our referral, we were told 10 months... BUT we got our referral at 8.5 months so yes, i do think they usually give a worst-case-scenario estimate... hang in there. praying that it's sooner than 8 months!

  2. Hugs! Can't believe they told you that long. Hoping it's sooner than they think. Honestly, they don't have any idea when it's going to come. They just have to prepare you. I remember being told 4-6 months when we first finished our home study....now 12ish? Still can't move my mind past March. Hoping you have one by January!

  3. That stinks. It was 4-6 when we started, then 6-8 while we were in process, and then changed again for the better. Like Christy said, they have no idea when it will be, they are just doing their best to give you an estimate without getting your hopes up. Sorry for the bad news. {{{{Hugs}}}

  4. It IS so hard... hang in there and hopefully good news is coming soon!

  5. Oh, Elizabeth, I'm so sorry. This waiting is so hard and just keeps getting harder. I'm so afraid we're going to hear the same thing from our agency. But we have to remember that God is in control not the adoption agencies and He will bring our babies to us in His perfect timing! Hang in there!!

  6. Its really tough sometimes but I just try to keep really busy with projects. We really have no choice but to try to stay busy. I sometimes just put the adoption to the back of my mind because some days it feels so far out. My advice is to try to enjoy the holidays with your two boys and enjoy them as much as possible...(my own advice to myself as well)Hugs..
