Presentations to Date — January, 2012 (Final)

Figures that our last active month with our agency would be a banner one. It also figures that even though it was our first double digit month in terms of presentations (and almost double the number of presentations of any other single month), we still didn’t place among any birth mother’s top choices.

Our profile is now frozen. There’s no way of knowing how an overhaul of it might have changed things and, while I haven’t ruled out re-visiting domestic adoption, it is highly unlikely that we will and, therefore, we’ll never know. I will never understand what it was that didn’t resonate. For now, I choose to believe that that was not the road that the child we are meant to have was going to travel.

Total Cumulative Presentations – 53

    I just don’t get it. I’m sorry that it turned out like this and I really hope and pray that you get your family of four somehow.
