Adoption was hard but worth it

I wanted to let folks know that adoption for us was very tough. The way our blog reads is we just adopted. That was not the case. The paper work and home study took a long time. There was significant financial cost.

The biggest set back we had were two reversals. We were chosen, a baby was born, and the mother(s) decided to parent. The first reversal we went through was the most painful thing we ever experienced. None of the babies had made it into our home. Where we live there is a 21 day period where the birth parents can reverse their decision.

The boy we did adopt made everything else worthwhile.
