We have been trying to adopt for almost 2 years, adopting through on-line photo-listings. Thursday will be our one year anniversary that we were matched with a little girl 5 states away, and Friday is her birthday, also DH birthday. We drove 18 hours and spent a week pre-placement visit with her. 3 weeks later the foster parents adopted her. It was a horrible ordeal, and very hard on me and our 5 year old son.
We now have a foster child we are in the process of adopting, came home Thanksgiving! Child has special needs and it has been a stressful time getting a lot of appointments scheduled with Specialists, getting overnight nursing set up, ect.
With everything going on, I can already tell it is going to be an emotional week for me. Has anyone been through a similar experience? Dealt with similar feelings/emotions?
