Still waiting

Hello all...anyone still bother to check this blog I never update?

I just got back from a driving trip to CA.

I'm going to be a better blogger :-)

I'm reading all your blogs. I just live by the adage of "if you don't have anything good to say, don't say anything at all."

SO the emom that we talked to.....
she called the facilitator right after we talked and said she really liked us...but wanted to talk to another couple. Then she called C late, late that same night asking for a counselor. C found out she was upset that her purse had been stolen, she'd lost her rent money etc etc. C said it sent up huge red flags for her. C suggested she call the police. Said she couldn't really do anything for her. After all at this point she was just an emom calling about the services she wasn't "signed up" or anything.

C hasn't heard from her since.

And THAT would be the latest on our adoption front. I've accepted the fact that if..after our 3 years with C are up (we have 2 left) that we may not have a child. Then I'm done.

Currently, I'm ok with it. I'll be 41 then. Mr H will be pushing 50. We'll just call it another one of those life things that didn't work out like we thought it would.

Maybe I"ll be surprised. We'll see.

Thanks for hanging in there with me.


  1. I'm still reading! :-) I'm glad that the situation resolved itself quickly, rather than being strung along and then having the issues/flags come up.

    A lot can happen in 2 years.

  2. Ditto...a lot can happen in 2 years! That stinks about the emom situation but sounds like you dodged a bullet.

  3. Still reading :)
    Don't know what to say, but have to agree with Karen.
    Hang in there
    Don't you hate it when people say that? :)

  4. Right there with you… We two have been talking about an “end date”. Lets face it, living in adoption limbo isn’t much fun. Should we not be blessed with children, we would be making much different decisions on a financial, emotional, and physical level.

    We did wish for crazy Halloween encounters last year…isn’t that time about due? Hoping there are better days ahead.

  5. Still reading! Glad to hear from you again, but sorry to hear about your disappointment. However, have to agree with all of the other commentors about dodging a bullet. Hang in there...

    Best and peace.

  6. I'm still here! OK, so I've been MIA on my own blog, but I'm still following up on the blogs I enjoy reading. I'm sorry that nothing came of that conversation with emom.

    I think that one day you will be very pleasantly surprised. Hang in there. I'm always hoping for you.

  7. I'm still here, too. Still reading everyone and everything but my train of thought gets so derailed sometimes that I tend to forget where I was prior to derailing!

    Thinking of you.... *hugs*
