I checked today and our profile has finally appeared on the Bethany website: http://waitingfamilies.bethany.org/home/michigan/david-and-leah... They have not yet posted our video, but you have all already seen that... if not... look below!
We also went to a "waiting families" meeting last week with several other waiting families. They had 2 adoptive couples, as well as two birth moms, and one of the dads. It was very cool to hear the different perspectives from both sides of the adoption. It was also nice to hear that several of them had the same fears we are having. We are terrified of a failed adoption. Having already miscarried twice, we don't know if we could handle the grief of an adoption that falls through. It was very nice to have the adoptive parents speak, as both couples had at least one failed adoption, and were able to speak kindly of the situation. It seems as though once you are matched and have a baby at home, all wounds are healed. I so look forward to that day.
The thought is quite crazy that we could be parents tomorrow! Realistically, the agency is estimating 12-18 months, but if a birth mother likes us tomorrow, we could be matched that quickly. Keep praying for our birth mother. This process is obviously going to be very tough for her. Also, please pray for our hearts. That he will protect our family, and make us whole very, very soon!
