Adoption blues

So time marches on and still no great news to share. I find myself in a place I really never thought I'd be at again. Lots of feelings coming to the surface that existed back when we were struggling to conceive our boys. However this time they are accompanied by a splash of guilt being that I know how lucky I am to have two happy healthy beautiful boys. Is it too much to ask for just one more happy healthy beautiful face to call my own? Am I selfish for wanting more? Why is it that some things come so easy for some and such a struggle for others? I'm still so new with this blogging thing, but wish I knew how to use it to reach out to others who are in my same boat. Can you help?


  1. Melissa, I'm so sorry that this has been such a long wait for you and that some of the old feelings are starting to resurface. I truly get it. Already being blessed, yet yearning for more. Go to and you will find TONS of adoption support. The gal who runs the website is completely awesome! On the top left click on "blogroll" and you will be able to find tons of adoption blogs. Browse the website, have Mel add you, and welcome you, and you will get tons of support. Please feel free to call me at any time . . . Hugs to you!

  2. I wrote a blog post very similar to this one about a year ago. Believe me sister, I've been there, done that.

    All I can say is hang on. Just hang on.

    Today I rocked my baby to sleep and I cried for the millionth time because I couldn't believe she actually made it to us.

    Do whatever it takes, but just hang on.
