The waiting.

We have had two site and safety inspections already and have at least two more before we are licensed. I am so frustrated by all of this. Things that never came up on our cw’s radar during the first inspection came up during the second one. Some of these are pretty major issues and will take time.

We also have a couple more classes to finish one-on-one with her, but we haven’t heard anything about them in over a week.

Frustrating to say the least.

I have found a really helpful forum for adoptive parents and have been really enjoying the information and support available there. It’s a smaller forum and doesn’t seem to be all that well-known, but I am really thankful for the close-knit network there.

We are looking at private agencies now. The fees are crazy. We hope to apply for funding, but obviously we have no idea how much we will get in the end. So many variables, so little control. If I think about all of this and how it will all have to fall together by the hand of God for anything to happen, I get really impatient. So I try not to think about it. He has taken care of us so far, and if it is His will to expand our family, it will happen.

E is disgusted by the racket that is the adoption industry. He agreed with me when I said that offering babies for free would be horrible too, but the point is that there are a lot of people making a lot of money off what is basically the legal sale of children. It’s important to weed out the people and agencies who are in the industry to make money in order to find the ones who are in it for other, more humanitarian reasons (although at the end of the day, most of them need to get paid too…).
