On December 16, 2009, we were placed on our agencies wait list at #24. We have since moved up a spot.
And today another child was matched with their forever family. For me, it is always a bittersweet celebration. I'm thrilled that a family has just been matched with the child that they've been hoping for and dreaming of for so long. I'm thrilled that a child will not grow up in an orphanage but instead with a family that loves them. But for every child that gets referred to an adoptive family, there may be a birth family mourning their loss.
