Well, after only 3 months of trying and 5 months after our loss, my husband and I have decided to stop trying and will be journeying down the long road of adoption. Shockingly, I'm ok with this? I know a lot of you wonderful ladies on here believe in God (I don't meant to get preachy here if you don't) but I have gone pretty much over night from DESPERATELY consumed with the need to become pregnancy and fast, to after some research, prayer and absolutely everything to do with adoption coming together rather strangely and falling into our laps, I have such a immense amount of peace with this decision, something I never thought I'd say! Somehow, seriously I don't even know how this happened especially since I wanted nothing to do with God a few months ago, we stumbled in to starting an adoption ministry in our church?
I just wanted to thank everyone so much for the support and encouragement that I've found here since joining and I sincerely wish every single one of you all happiness, and healthy beautiful rainbow babies soon!
Good luck on your adoption journey! DH and I have been talking about this a lot recently as well. We aren't really in a place financially to adopt right now but we might start moving down the road soon. Are you planning on adopting domestically or internationally?
My husband and I went to Jamaica a couple years ago now and absolutely just fell in love with the kids, culture and people (and food!). We were only there a week but feel a strong attachment to the country. We like that they speak English and it's nice and close and somewhere that we'd be more than willing to bring the child back frequently so we'll be looking into the international route. Jamaica also doesn't have fees to adopt so it would just be the local agency fees which makes it more of a possibility for us. Thanks for the support, take care you guys!
I'm so sorry to see you go but I am so happy for you at the same time! That is so great that you will be adopting. That is something we would like to do at some point as well. I want to wish you the best of luck and make sure you keep us updated with the adoption process and let us know how it goes if you can! Take lots of care!
I think that's awesome! I was a foster child. And a lot of my friends were in foster care or adopted. And before becoming a stay-at-home mom, I was an Independent Living Coordinator for youth and young adults from the foster care system or that had been adopted as teenagers. I also interned in DC to raise awareness on capital hill regarding foster care and adoption.
With all of that said, I'm a huge advocate of adoption! It's not an easy road, going through the whole process and having to learn what issue/s the child may or may not have and how to get past all of those, but in the end I believe it is such a blessing for everyone involved! Best of luck to you! You will be in my prayers!
