The patience thing is working out…not.
I asked around (even after I said I didn’t want to know) about wait times based on our soon to be updated dossier. It was all good news. It is hard to get specifics but it appears that we will not wait for a match for too much longer after the update is complete (sometime in November).
I am so ready.
It has been over 6 months since our dossier was registered.
It has been nearly 14 months since we formally started the international adoption process.
It has been about 38 months since we made the decision to build this family exclusively with adoption
It has been over 4 1/2 years on this journey to motherhood.
So. So. Ready.
The worst part about the wait is that my wait hasn’t even been the worst part. Somewhere in Bulgaria my children wait. And it is likely that they have waited all their lives.
