...Riding a roller coaster and not knowing if, when, and how the ride will end. Your emotions are up, down, and all around. Just when you think you have moved on, a new twist hurls you forward.
...Wandering through a forest, not knowing which path to follow. You think there might be children out there for you, but aren't sure how to find them.
...Navigating an unfamiliar freeway, wondering which exit to take. Treatment Trail? Adoption Avenue? Foster Care Circle? Or maybe Childless Channel?
...Being trapped, yet forced into action. You picture a future without children, and it doesn't look quite right. Parenthood is unlikely to happen without you taking action, but what action should you take? Hurry up; the years are flying by! If you don't do something now, you will be all alone at eighty.
...Floating in an ocean, waiting for the next wave to hit. The waves might be pregnancy announcements, new babies, thoughtless comments, or dates on the calendar. You just keep treading water.
