I have been on the books for almost 3 weeks now. It is a strange feeling not having to fill out paperwork or attend an adoption class (although my adoption research continues). Because of the lack of adoption administrative tasks, I have to keep reminding myself that the magical call, the call when I’m told I have been matched with a baby, can happen anytime. I continue to search for adoption blogs and read the stories of other adoptive parents and their journey. It helps me to understand the timing…it can be fast or it can take years. But I’m ok with that. I need to trust the process and know when the timing is right; I will be matched with a baby. Until then, I will keep showering my goddaughter with kisses & hugs.
