Still on My Mind…and My Heart

Leave a comment

“My” girls are still waiting. I check every so often to see if they’re still on the photolisting. Somehow, despite my best efforts, my mind has locked on them. When I think of the matching/adoption process, I automatically think “when my girls come home.” I saw a billboard for a local magnet school and wondered about sending them there. I am trying to remind myself that I could easily end up with boys, or just one child, and it could be a baby or toddler. And I know that if I go through the matching process and the girls and I are not the right fit, it will be ok. But I also know that I’ll be sad if I check the photolisting one day and find them matched with another family.
