Yesterday, Brian and I went to our first interview with LDS Family Services. We have the nicest social worker named Emily. She asked us a lot of questions about why are we adopting and questions about our marriage. And then she showed us all the paper work ahead of us. Wow! Even I am overwhelmed a bit! It seems that this is a long process to get approved and then we wait. It's funny, when Brian and I were driving home, I asked Brian how he was feeling. He said he felt nervous, but the same nervous he felt when we found out that Shaeler was coming.
My thoughts turn to the birth mothers that are considering adoption. How she must feel completely overwhelmed by her pregnancy. Is she scared, lonely, comforted or supported? I cannot imagine the the decisions that she has to go through. I have the utmost respect for anyone that has to go through this process, on both sides.
