186 days...That is how long we have been waiting. Officially that is. We started our adoption journey in October 2010, went through the whole rigmarole and finally had our last panel-meeting on the 3rd of February 2012. The day the wait started.
I always knew that this would be the hardest part. That is probably one of the reasons why it took us a fairly long time from our first session to the last meeting. I know of people who have done this in a matter of weeks. We decided from the start that we would take it in our stride and enjoy the journey. We were not prepared to rush to the end and sit and wait.
But we have arrived and it has proved to be no fun at all. Well, maybe a little!
