Today, I read the article “Adoption: What to Expect While You’re Waiting to Adopt.” The writer, author Rebecca Lyn Gold, does a great job summarizing each stage of adoption and giving parallels to pregnancy.
In my book Nine Year Pregnancy each chapter tells about part of the adoption journey in terms of a pregnancy, with chapter titles such as: Conception, Expecting, Heartbeat, False Contractions, Bed Rest, Contractions, Labor, Delivery, Newborn, Homecoming, etc.
How long was your adoption “pregnancy”? What was the most difficult stage? Feel free to leave a comment, I’d love to hear your story (even if you’re still waiting).
