So we did our monthly check ins with the agencies and left a message for the one up here but spoke to the one in Florida. My husband likes to check in and I would rather not....for this reason...She said she actually just met with a family who is due in a few weeks and want an out of state couple...sounds good right? Unfortunately, the mother has bipolar disorder and we know the chance of passing it on to the child is more than we'd like. Part of me feels like, this could be it...give our daughter a sister and stop the waiting process and take the chances of the outcome. The other part of me feels like we should not take something we're not sure of (though you're never really sure of anything in the adoption process as we all know) but will this be the only opportunity for us for a year or more. Is it right for us now? Is it wrong for us to question it? I always hear that when it's right, you know and there's no second thoughts. Are we being too specific about what we want and why do I feel bad about turning down one when there's so many out there who would do it. I know people get matched and then it falls through or wait for years and years...I just didn't know how I would feel if something came up that we weren't prepared to take.
