Holidays in New York City
Decided to stay in a boutique hotel in NYC to switch up my surroundings. Had been feeling sad about how slow this process of finding a match for an adoption plan can be. I had been hoping I would be a mother by adoption by now, and it's hard to know if I am putting myself out there enough, so that I can be seen and picked by a pregnant woman and/or her spouse or mother. They would say - this is actually the person we were looking for to solve our problem! Halleluyah! I am not using an agency, and am doing a private adoption, which means there has to be a channel to meet potential matches - Instagram, this website, Adoptimist and AdoptMatch are the channels I am using. My holiday helped put things in perspective. The pandemic is slowing things down, for sure, but things will happen the way that they are supposed to happen, and I just have to sit tight.
