My husband and I have been trying to adopt and it is taking forever. I have sisters and friends who are all having babies around me. I am so sad that I have so much love and caring to offer and no children to share it with. My case worker said that it will probably be a while longer on the list unless I just know someone who wants to sign their child over to me, which of course doesn't happen everyday....If anyone knows how to help me through the process or has done it before please advise me. If you are going through the same thing then bless you and I offer up lots of luck to you!

I know other couples who have been through this and they've all said how hard it is, so I feel for you. I don't know the ins and outs of adoption but it seems sad that there are so many children who need loving homes but there is years of red tape to deal with.
I think it's wonderful that you have decided to adopt. The people I know who adopted about a year ago are so happy with their little boy. The adjustment didn't take very long and they are all doing really well. One day that will be you! Until then be strong! XOXO

Thank you so much for your encouraging words they help more than you know! We will try to be strong as we continue the wait. I also feel awful that there are children waiting for a loving home.

I wonder if Canada is different in that way, America loves taking kids from their parents which I'm guessing makes adoption wait time shorter here. I really respect what your doing. :-)

I had a friend of mine who was interested in adopting a child (as she could not have one herself, and this was her only hope) and was on waiting list for years. She was going through the same emotions as you were, and then one day.. A miracle happened, and she was finally pregnant. About 6 months after giving birth to her beautiful daughter, the adoption agency called her - and had a beautiful child waiting for her in China!
Moral of this story is. Be patient, be strong. Your day will come, definitely.

I know how you feel I wanna adopt a child because I wanna be a mother so bad but at the same time I know how long of a process it can take. I was diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome and women with that have a very hard time getting pregnant and some can't even have kids. I get sad seeing all my friends having babies and im not. I wish you luck on adopting, be strong and patient and hopefully things will work out for you.

I know from a friends experience that the process can take awhile but don't lose heart! I am sure it will work out for you. I think what you're doing is very noble and kind. Perhaps you should try contacting friends and family. As sad as it is there are unfortunately many teenage mothers in todays society and they're looking for good people to give their baby to. Have you considered an international adoption? This post is a little bit old and I wonder if you have since been able to adopt a child?
