I’ve been dreading this day for the past 364. I don’t know why. It doesn’t change anything. But it is an anniversary by which we will be able to mark the rest of our lives.
There are many levels of tiredness in the adoption process. Planning, waiting and when the children are home. Let's face it, adoption is exhausting!
I didn't expect the parallels that I saw tonight between The Crown's Aberfan episode and adoption. But they were there.. and they were deep.
Sometimes adoption is painful. Sometimes its in the post-adoption phase. Today, it was in the pre-adoptive phase. We said goodbye today.
Fast, speedy, quick: those are not words that describe the adoption process. It's a decidedly slow process. You can sum it by saying: adoption is waiting.
