Hi, I’m Geochick.

Welcome to my blog. What started out as a private blog to document our adoption journey has evolved into my journey through therapy and spiritual awakening. Without our struggles to build a family, I’m not sure I’d be waking up, and for that I’m grateful.

A Question For Adoptive Parents...

Did you post a profile somewhere on the web?  I ask this because our agency has been very slow over the last year and we were told that they will facilitate designated adoptions.  That means if we find an expectant mother ourselves they'll go ahead and do the work just as if we were chosen from the pool.  Supposedly a little profile of us will be posted on the agency's site but not yet.

I'm torn on this issue but have spoken to S's mom who works in a hospital and may have connections and to my acupuncturist who mentioned that every now and then she even treats or knows about a mother can't parent.  I need to contact my gyn too.  However, I know that there are sites where we can set up profiles and I'm wondering if it's worth it.  Even though it's supposedly non-identifying information there is a lot of personal information in a profile so it doesn't seem all that non-identifying to me. 

Anyway, just want to know other's thoughts on this.

Wow!  100 posts.  Already?

*edit*  I talked to our SW.  Um, I missed the part where we were supposed to send in a picture and a short narrative to go on the website.  Duh.  So, we'll put that on the to-do list this weekend.  We've also moved up a couple of spots and she said there's several placements lined up for this month which is good news for us.  Oh, and S is so good at voicing my internal reactions sometimes.  When I told him that it looks like it's picking up at the agency he responded "Don't you think it's weird that we're basically cheering someone on to....(fill in "place their baby" here, he didn't actually say it)".  And yes, I feel caught between wanting a family so bad that I want to move up in the pool and the fact that the reason why we move up in the pool is because there's a woman out there who feels like she can't parent her own child.  It's such a weird place to be.
