Our profile was shown...TWICE!

We got our April update a day early from a caseworker...our profile was shown twice in the month of March!

We don't know any details. We just know that it was shown to 2 separate expectant mothers on two different days. We weren't selected by the expectant parents, but we at least know we were "seen."

I'm so excited! Our caseworker had told us that we probably wouldn't be shown at all during the first 6 months. (If an expectant mother comes in and asks for us specifically or asks to see a profile of couples that match what she's looking for, then we might be shown. Otherwise, if she doesn't have anything specific in mind, waiting couples who have been waiting the longest are shown first.) So us being shown TWICE is pretty exciting!

Just wanted to share our news!!!

Oh Wendy! That is INCREDIBLE news! How exciting!! This surely sets a good tone for the future.

Does the agency give you any info, like birth mother feedback, from your profile reviews? Just curious....

Wendy said...

Thanks, everyone!

Erica - No, we asked. Our caseworker only gets a grid sheet with names and dates checked off. It doesn't give her any more info than that. I know...I wanted more info! We emailed her back to ask if she could tell us anything else. Basically, the expectant moms/parents would make a decision in a day or two from looking at your profile. You would then be notified if you were chosen. So we're probably out of the 'running.' We don't know anything about why we were chosen to be shown; I wish we knew if it was because of something specific we wrote or something specific about us. Oh well. I'm just glad that we've been shown!
