*singing* i know... all there.... is to know.... about the waiting game.

well, i finally took the leap.

i called the adoption agency and told them to put us on the waiting list. technically its the "waiting-for-the-waiting-list" waiting list...pero, its still a step.
the woman on the phone said that there are currently 25 couples on the "inactive" waiting list. those folks are waiting to be put on the "active" waiting list which consists of 30 couples. so...they have like 60 babies to place before we will see any action.

she estimated that we would spend 5 months on the "inactive" list before joining the "active" list. once we get to the "active" list, we get to hurry up and wait some more until we are chosen by a birth mom. this can take anywhere from 2 months to years.

in other news, today is CD1 and i called our RE to tell them that we are back in the race. we shall see what they say when the nurse calls me back. im excited to start trying again...especially with the non-homophobe doctor up the street. i certainly wont miss those long drives 3 times a month!

  1. I know that you don't know me, and that this is an old post, but I'm glad that you've signed up for adoption.

    I was adopted as a child (private adoption, not through an agency) and just met my birth mom a year and a half ago and really think that adoption is one of the greatest things in the world and that adopted kids know that they are some of the most loved children in the world!

    Anyway, if you end up waiting too long you could start hanging out at the local high school hangouts and help out one or two of those accidentally pregnant teenagers, haha (yes, that was a joke)
