Patience: an unattainable virtue?

Posted on September 16, 2010. Filed under: Adoption, Family | Tags: |

I didn’t get pregnant after Month 1.  No big deal, right?

I was talking to the hubby over dinner the other night, and suggested we start researching adoption, since there’s a lot to learn, and the process itself would probably take some time.  I didn’t mean to imply we act on anything, just that we start the due diligence, figuring out what’s it’s all about.

Hubby’s reaction was reasonable, I suppose.  He said we should give the pregnancy attempt some more time, at least until the end of the year, before tackling more research, more information, more procedural and emotional considerations and changes to process.  I kind of laugh to myself when I think about it.  Not pregnant?  OK, adoption!  Go!

Of course he’s right.  Give it more than a few weeks, eh?  It’s just that I’ve been waiting years to get to this point, of starting a family, and now that the time has come, I have zero patience.  Zip, zilch.

I suppose Nature will just teach me that hard lesson in patience, eh?  That, and a husband who can’t process more that one heavy, life-altering thing at a time.
