Our adoption profile

We are in a tough spot with our adoption profile. Since we moved we have to update our home study. Now here is the hard thing... Do we pay to have our home study updated while living with Kyle's awesome sister or do we wait until we find our house? The risk of waiting is that we will have our profile put on hold so no birthmothers would be able to view our info on the website. But if we pay we will have to pay twice in a short time frame for home studies.
For now we have decided to wait on the home study. It kind of breaks my heart because we were able to be so productive before, then we were off the website for 5 months while waiting for Liam, put back on for a little bit, and now we may be taken off again.
But for now they haven't taken us off yet... I hope they forget ;).
For all you Birth Mothers out there, if you are interested in us we will bend over backwards to make sure we can have a child placed with us. We really don't mind paying for a home study if we need to. If we are taken off the agencies website please feel free to contact us through email.

  1. I completely understand what you are saying and feeling, and it's so frustrating. Our agency puts us on "hold" even if someone is interested in meeting with you. Which means it stops your entire process. Obviously if they pick you, great. If not, you just missed out on all that opportunity. No one can see your profile until that particular couple makes a decision. With having to go through this once, I feel your struggle. However, I feel like, if a child is meant for you/us, it will happen. It will happen the way it is suppose to. If that means not being online for 5 months, then I guess that's what it means. The right baby will come to you at the right time and exactly how it was meant to happen. :) Hang in there!
