Well we had planned on going to the August group session with our agency. This month’s session was on dealing with infertility with adoption. We have gone to a session on it before but thought it was helpful to talk and also like to talk to other couples going through the adoption process. After missing the last several months of group we decided to go and just catch up with everyone.
In the end we ended up being the only couple that showed up for group this month. It was disappointing to not see other friends that we have met through the adoption process but it was great to have one of the counselors all to ourselves to talk for a little while. We did talk about infertility issues that we have had while dealing with the adoption and other topics in general that trigger emotions for us during the process of adoption.
It is always great to talk to someone that understands the different emotions we go through at different times. They can help us figure out how to talk through them and deal with them so that it doesn’t cause more stress in the adoption process than we already have. Plus it helps us remember that we aren’t the only ones with the same feelings even if it can feel like it at times.
We hope to be able to go to the September session since it is supposed to be a great session with a lot of people wanting to attend.
