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.

What a process you've been through. It seems it's given and taken time and time again. So glad you finally got your little guy to love.

Thank-you for sharing your story with me. My husband and I are going through a similar story, but are still early in our journey. While I don't wish infertility on anyone, it's so good to know that our experience is not only our own. I can find strength in knowing we are not entirely alone in this.

We need to hope for the best, but will hope for a happy ending no matter how we get there. Like yourselves.

Congratulations on your beautiful family.
