I am a brat.
I saw baby wearing a “Worth the Wait” onesie yesterday, and I wanted to turn to her mother and say, “DUH she was worth the wait! She’s a precious baby and you ONLY waited for 9 months!! How hard is that!? We’re looking at an AT LEAST 19 month wait if we’re lucky.”
Like I said, I’m a brat. I know it. That’s why I didn’t verbalize my thoughts. For all I know, this poor mother waited for 5 years before she even became pregnant, and I may know nothing of waiting in comparison to her.
But I do have to say… our 9 month wait for Caroline was a cinch. Adoption is hard, hard, hard. Beautiful. But did I mention, HARD!?
