My daughter always makes me laugh at some of the funniest and most ridiculous things she says. Since we have been trying (and still trying) to adopt through the foster care system, my daughter initially hoped that we would do that instead of in vitro. We've been preparing her for this for quite awhile. Initially, there were insecurities about whether we would love a biological child more than her, but yeah, yesterday confirmed that those fears are no longer there.
She, however, does have other concerns. Including, but not limited to:
But it was all worth while, when I said, "There is a possibility it won't work, we are going to pray and hope for the best."
She then said, "I hope it works." A few seconds later she added, "If it doesn't work, will I be an only child."
I explained we'd start the infant adoption process.
She really wants to be an only child, but if she has to be a sibling, she hopes it happens sooner rather than later.
After six years of infertility, she was blessed with the adoption of her oldest daughter who now is a teenager. Six years later, she finally became a mother a second time, this time with a baby through a donated egg and ivf. Throughout that time, she fostered nine babies and toddlers, met wonderful women who helped her grow, and learned to rely on Jesus. She started this blog with the hope that she could share her joy, experience, and willingness to grow with others, whether they battle infertility, toddlers, or teens.
