(March, 2001) -- I call our adoption counselor, Sheryl, on the 1 week anniversary of submitting our profile. She says it looks great -- as do all the other profiles from the couples in our adoption class. There is a lot of competition in The Book.
“By the way," Sheryl says casually, "there’s an expectant mother due in three weeks who is interested in you.” My heart starts to leap out of my chest.
“It’s a bit of a sketchy situation,” she continues. The heart leap turns into a heart drop.
Seems the father is not sold on the adoption idea. But for various reasons, he’s not in a position to argue. So there may be a problem and there may be none at all.
Do we want to meet Crystal? YES! We set up an appointment for the upcoming Sunday.
