It's been almost 6 weeks since our profile went active, and I checked in with our social worker to see what was new. She shot me an e-mail today and said our profile had been shown 3 times already. What that means is that 3 birthfamilies looked at our profile and considered us as adoptive parents.
From the looks of it we were not chosen any of those 3 times, but the mere fact that we were already shown is, according to our social worker, "really, really good". We're hoping it's a sign that our perfect match happens sooner rather than later. If not, then we wait until our child comes to us. We know it may take some time. I am surprisingly calm about all of this. Though I have started to revisit our baby registry.
My co-worker said it's like being on match.com. She has a point!
