Adoption Is a Rollercoaster, but it's Worth the Ride
Erik Alexander (aka Nola Papa) opens up about his whirlwind 3.5-week adoption process.
Adoption is an emotional journey for anyone. Depending on how long you have to wait, that anxiety can be amplified dramatically. In the beginning, we were told our wait could be anywhere from 5-7 years. Just imagine our excitement when we found it could be shrunken down to less than a month!
However, it didn't come without heartbreak. It is crucially important to know that each journey is completely different. Sure, there are happy and excited emotions. But there is also fear, tears and heartbreak. Some adoptions end in failure, without any explanation. But at the end of this journey, when you are holding your new baby, there isn't an emotion I can articulate to convey how complete you feel.
In the end, every emotion is absolutely worth it. Just buckle up and get ready for a roller coaster ride.
