Ups and Downs
We thought we were getting a baby girl today. Then a couple of hours later we found out that we weren’t after all. Somehow the powers that be didn’t realize that the baby we were going to get has a brother. And they want to place the kids together. The boy is 6 months old and the girl is under two years old. I thought it was a “done deal.” I even told Jackson that today was the day. So, needless to say, we’re very disappointed. When she told me about the brother, I asked if we could take them both. She said she wasn’t sure but would check into it. I’m not counting on it of course. I’m beginning to think we’ve made a big mistake trying to adopt domestically. I’m trying not to wallow in my own little pity party, but I’m really getting sick of being jerked around. I think at this point if we could turn back time, we would not have looked into adoption at all. We would have just accepted that maybe we’re not meant to have anymore kids. Anyway, maybe tomorrow will bring better news.
