That all adds up to this: we have pretty much no chance to be matched with him. Why? This isn't the office that did our homestudy, and I'm sure they have lots of their own families who've been waiting. Surely, the child will be matched with a family that the worker knows through MAPP classes or from doing their homestudy. They're buried in homestudies at the moment which means there's a stay-at-home mom in there somewhere. Seriously, I'd prefer to be a stay-at-home mom, at least until our child is 3 or so, so I'd understand if they preferred to place this child with one.
Bottom line: I'm not getting my hopes up, but it's nice to be able to have a shot, even if it's a only a long shot.
