Hi, I'm Hillarie, I've been a member for a while, but I mostly just read and lurk around. (sounds kinda creepy when I write it out like that)

So, my husband (Pete) and I have been trying to have a baby for 7 years now... We opened ourselves up to include adoption about 4 years ago and stopped trying so hard to get pregnant and instead focused more on saving for an adoption.

Two weeks ago we got a call from a lawyer who is a friend of a friend asking if we were interested in adopting still. We told him yes... Then he asked if we cared that the child was 3 1/2 years old, and we told him that was fine.

Well the last two weeks have been a whirl wind, we met the family, met the child, and are making plans for her to move in!!

I am so excited, I am also terrified! Anyone else have such a whirlwind adoption!?

DH and I are walking on eggshells around here just hoping and praying this goes through and nothing goes wrong!!

Hi Hillarie! I'm RJ, future adoptive mommy to be, I will be starting the adoption process in a few years. I've never heard of the adoption process going that quickly, but there are other girls on this board that might have a different story. Good luck with the adoption going through!

Thank you to the wonderful ladies who mad the blinkies!

"The Lord compensates the faithful for every loss. That which is taken away from those who love the Lord will be added unto them in His own way. While it may not come at the time we desire, the faithful will know that every tear today will eventually be returned a hundredfold with tears of rejoicing and gratitude..... These experiences, while often difficult to bear at the time, are percisely the kinds of experiences that stretch our understanding, build our character and increase our compassion for others."
