ANYONE WAITING TO ADOPT USING 'A labour of Love' agency in California?
We are currently using ‘A Labor of Love” in California and I really am very disappointed with them. I would NOT recommend them to anyone.. We have been with them almost four years, to be honest i have forgotten, I have given up..I feel I really don’t have anyone to talk to about the experience, my husband has waited this long with me but I think now he hopes I will just leave it and move on with our lives.. We also have two biological children and they too have given up. I always told them we would be having a new brother or sister to join our family someone to play with to be part of our family, but all we’ve done is wait, wait, wait and wait…Looking back now I wish there had been someone to tell me what it would be like, I know everyone’s story is different, but its definately the waiting that is the hardest part. I am now older, our children are older, now 6 and 7 yrs old. I knew when my little one was 8 months old that I wanted another child, but because of my age this was not possible and we decided to adopt and its been that long.
The agency in california seems to have excuse after excuse as to why we have not been choses, usually that our profile book wasn’t good enough. I have sent in two batches of books and now the owner has said she will put a book together for me, which I am grateful about..
About $14,000 later and we are still waiting…
My biggest delemma is we are looking to travel overseas and now i must decide if I should give up the dream of another child joining our family and is it breaking my heart to do this, I feel there really is nobody I can talk to about this, my husband doesen’t know how I really feel, my friends just say ’ don’t you have the two kids already, isn’t that enough, my family says the same, ‘it’s time to move on, you tried and it didn’t work, so let it go’...
So this is my adoption story…
