Well, It's true. We have decided to adopt...It's official...well an official decision that is. After promptings, prayers and waiting, we know that this is what Heavenly Father wants for us and our family. We are excited for this process to begin and to see where it brings us and our family.
I know some of you may take this as a total surprise since we haven't talked about this to many people yet...not even most of our family (with exception of Mom's and Dad's)...we just wanted to be sure we were sure...and we wanted to make sure we told Abbe in a special way before letting everyone know...It's been a long 4 yrs of trying and to no avail (not even a pregnancy) to grow our family...which I know only some even know that.
It had been hard for us to talk about it at times...especially with everyone we knew was either pregnant/ getting pregnant/ or better yet they were on baby 2 or 3...not to mention all the showers...but we have believed that Heavenly Father always knows why we must be challenged and tried and that our "Greatest Trials often bring our Greatest Triumphs." We have just been being prepared.
We have already met with LDS Family Services so that we can get the ball rolling and get certified. Our case worker Hannah has been really helpful. We are really excited and can't wait to meet the little one that will come to us!
