Weíve been waiting over a year now. Iíve been OK with the whole process up until 2 days ago when my SIL gave birth to her first son. My in-lawís first grandchild. I havenít slept since that night (to add to the emotion, it was on my birthday)
I know my child is out there. And I know that in the right time, he/she will come to me. But Iím so worn out. Iíve started to convince myself that if it didnít happen, it would be ok. But in my heart of hearts, I know thatís not the case.
Hubby travels for work and I feel so alone. Heís feels like Iím jinxing something if I start to put the nursery together, I feel like itís therapy. Nesting, if you will, because thatís all I have.
Not looking for a pity party, just had no where else to vent.
YOUR child will come at exactly the right time I agree with "nesting" in the meantime. I started making lists YEARS before becoming a foster parent, of the stuff that I would need. It helped very much to pass the time. Maybe talking to your husband about it, that getting the nursery is for you, not necessarily a baby, kwim? Praying for you
Vent away!!! I have to agree, start nesting if you need to, even if its just picking up some stuff at garage sales to have on hand just in case and making lists of things you will need when your forever child comes to you. Happy Birthday!!!
