Adoption

My hubby and I are about to begin an incredible journey. We are pursuing adoption!!!! We have had a lot of fertility issues and its been very very hard. But we have drawn a line in the sand after much prayer and many tears and are moving forward. And guess what? I AM TOTALLY EXCITED ABOUT IT!!! I just want to ask for the prayers of anyone who reads my blog. Its a process and its expensive but I believe there is a child out there for us. Maybe even 2! WE are at the very beginning of this journey. I just printed out the application and will spend time during the second leg of my vacation completing it. It has taken me a long time to get to this point. I have always wanted to adopt, but dealing with infertility is super difficult and I up to now, i was not sure I was ready to pursue adoption. But something happened to me today as I was looking over a website my husband found. I saw all the descriptions of birth moms and babies and I just got this surge of excitement in my heart. I want to do this. I want to welcome one of these little ones into my heart and into my home. SO, pray for us. This is only the beginning!

Oh, sweetie, GOOD FOR YOU!

I have one child (biological), and because I have a malfunctioning heart was told right after he was born that I could not have anymore children. Then I had a hysterectomy recently to really put an end to this part of my life. Many times we have talked about adopting children because my son fills our heart with so much love and joy, and I want to share that joy even more. I can't wait to read as you go through this journey. Many many blessings to you both as you embark on this journey.

I am so happy for you. My two sisters-in-law both adopted children. One an infant boy, and one an 11 year old girl, both from Russia. I'm sending good vibes your way!

Many blessings to you and your husband. Currently an attorney I work with is going through an adoption process and its nearing its course - I mentioned to her last week that maternity time is nearing and she just starting gushing and got all excited.

You have my prayers - and emotional support! My SIL/BIL adopted a little girl from China and our family couldn't imagine life without her : )

Blessings for the journey.
