First, I want to say thank-you for pausing in your day to read my blog! I am excited to start this new adventure, sharing the ups and downs of being a family grown through adoption after years of walking the infertility road.
My husband and I knew prior to our marriage that fertility might be a challenge to us given my medical history. We spent 3 1/2 years trying to get pregnant before we decided to abandon that route of growing our family, eventually seeking out adoption as a way to fill our home. Three matches and two children later, we have seen both the depths of despair and the peaks of overwhelming joy.
By no means, do I have all of the solutions to the many challenges that this journey entails. I only have my perspective for what it is worth. For those looking for answers, I am hoping that my perception of this road gives you insight. For those in the trenches, still walking the road of infertility, wondering what the other side is like if you choose adoption, my prayer is that this gives you hope. For those searching for the solace of knowing you are not alone on this road, whether it is as an infertile woman or an adoptive family, I pray you find peace. This road has brought me far more questions than answers, but in dialoging it, I am hoping my words are helpful to others who are seeking.
