Nine Months and Still (Paper) Pregnant

I remember I was so excited when we went to our adoption orientation and they said, "Congratulations, you're paper pregnant!" They warned us that the process sometimes feels like pregnancy with the associated mood-swings and crazy cravings. I can now tell you it's true, except that after nine months of paper pregnancy, we're not even close to giving birth!

Today marks the nine month anniversary of our log-in date. A warning to friends, family and co-workers: the mood swings and cravings will most likely continue for the forseeable future!

Congrats on passing the nine month mark! You ARE getting closer.

You are correct, the adoption journey is certainly filled with mood swings!

I've never heard the term 'paper pregnant'. It sounds like quite the ordeal to not have a date in mind when you will actually be receiving that precious package. Hope it's soon.
