This time around has been different. Somewhere in the early days of spring, we realized that we felt some relief that the call hadn’t come yet. We were not in the same place as when we first began discussions about starting in on adoption #2. Realizing that we needed some space to contemplate the make-up of our family, we called our social worker and asked that our file be put on hold.
Maybe we’ll be on hold a few more months or for a year or maybe our family is complete. For now we will embrace being a family of three and will continue to listen to our hearts as we look to the future.
