A year and a half ago I wrote a post about patience. It was featured on the Single Mothers by Choice blog. The original post can be read http://www.thechoiceofmotherhood.com/home/patience-is-for-wimps or on the SMC website at http://www.singlemothersbychoice.org/2013/06/22/patience-is-for-wimps/
In that post I talk about how impatient I am and that I hope I get pregnant quickly instead of needing to wait the year for my surrogate. We here we are a year and a half later.... no pregnancy, no baby, no surrogate. I'm still stuck waiting. Honestly I can't believe how fast time has gone by. I think it's because I was so bust trying to get pregnant that I was living two weeks at a time. Then when I quit TTCing I went right to adoption and the process has been keeping me busy. Unfortunately now I'm in the "waiting for a match" period and have no clue what to do.... I'm stuck just waiting, with no clue of a time line. At least before I felt like I had an idea of when things would happen, or should say when I thought things would happen, whereas now it could be three months, it could be three years. There is absolutely no way for me to know. I hate it. I'm a planner. How do you plan for something when you don't know when it's going to happen?!?!?!
Anyway, I am REALLY hoping that my wait for an official match is short and that I will be able to start planning the fun things again instead of just dreaming about them. I am very grateful for technology because without my blog and vlog as an outlet I think I would go crazy lol.
I am 30, single, vegan, and been on my journey to becoming a single mother since 2013. I have struggled with infertility and I am now on the path to international adoption of a little girl with Down syndrome. Come join me on my journey to becoming a mother!
