“Apparently it’s really slow during this time during COVID. I thought it would be a different game,” Kotb told host Andy Cohen.
“They said that a lot of people who maybe normally would feel like it would be something they’d want to do — have a child and give it to someone to raise because they couldn’t — are holding on to things because they don’t have anything in that moment, so that’s what I’ve heard from our agency. Everything’s slow.”
She shared the advice she was given. “They say wait wisely and just be,” she said, “so we’re just gonna be.”
