wasted time? Maybe...
But, Like most AP's - it's hard not to fantasize or daydream about our next child to be.
Most of us can't go an hour without thinking about what he or she will be like, what the birth parents will be like, if it's a boy or a girl, if it will be sooner than later etc...
Some of us AP moms start putting together ideas of what the rooms, car seat covers, fit take home outfits, nursery toys, names etc... And maybe that is wasted time, just maybe but, I think it's also therapeutic and i like getting mentally organized a tad bit. B/c with adoption- you just never know when your day will come! And having dreams, wishes, hopes, is what keeps us going through all the hard things we face. Like little to no contacts from birth moms, being judged for one thing or another, failed placements or almost miracles, stress at work or what have you! If we all stopped dreaming and hoping- what would happen to us?
Maybe we'd become more cynical or callus or might some of us just give up on the whole process? Possibly.
So, i say to those who dream of that little special person and all the special things/experiences you desire for them- KEEP DREAMING! NEVER GIVE UP HOPE. HAVE FAITH THAT GOD WILL BRING THIS BLESSING INTO YOUR LIFE WHEN IT'S RIGHT FOR YOUR FAMILY!
