Light At The End Of A Tunnel

So after I posted my last blog on Facebook and on Instagram, 2 days later I got a message from a my friend and this is what it said, 

"Hey hun, I just finished talking to my sister in law. Her daughter is about 11 weeks pregnant. And there is a chance she may need to put the baby up for adoption if it's a girl. Too long of a complicated story. Anyway, I told Vicki about y'all and she will be talking to Kirsten. She is in Florida. And if she does decide to do adoption she will now have an amazing loving family as an option.
I guess I just wanted to give you a heads up on what I did. I can't guarantee she will do adoption but if she does hopefully she will go with you. Side note: Kirsten is extremely book smart but not ready to be a mom. So me, my sister and mother in law and husband are all praying very hard that she does the right thing for this baby. Hope I wasn't wrong for telling you all this."

This just gives me some hope. I just hope that the girl doesn't back out. That is the main reason why my husband & I don't want to get our hopes up just in case it doesn't happen. Please keep your fingers crossed because if it happens it can be as soon as June or July.

Hard To Share But I Want To.......

My husband and I have finally decided to share something that has been quite difficult having to share but with only a few people. These past few years have been hard and we were emotionally drained. After learning how to deal with our predicament ourselves and professional advice, we decided not wait any longer and share it with family and friends to see what happens. 

For 3 long years we've been trying to start a family. We are both in good health and could not understand why we haven’t been able to conceive. After months of home test reading negative, we decided it was time to consult with a doctor. About 10 months ago we did. (As I said before, it’s been hard to share.) For unfortunate reasons we have a very slim to no chance of ever being biological parents. There are procedures that we can try but they are simply too costly and none are guaranteed to work. So we decided on another alternative, adoption. 

Adoptions however are a long process and also expensive. After seeking advice, we spoke with an adoption lawyer and he advised us to use social network to get the word out that there is a couple willing to adopt an unwanted unborn child. Whatever the persons circumstances are i.e., substance abuse, can’t afford a child, or just simply isn't ready to take the responsibility. We are more than willing and happy to give that baby a loving home. It is one of the two affordable adoption methods we can do to be parents. If you have any information or know someone, please do not hesitate to give us a call or drop me a message to my inbox. And please feel free to share this with everyone you know. 

Thank you all and God bless.
