This just feels right
I met with our family doctor today to have him complete my medical report and in the middle of our conversation he asked me how I was doing...I could sense what he was getting at and I paused for a second and told him I was okay and adoption just feels right...he proceeded to ask the questions he needed to fill in the information on my medical report. Of course when I first learned of Grant & my joint infertility issues it wasn't easy to hear, but it made sense - there was finally a medical explanation as to why after 3 years of trying we were unable to become pregnant. Adoption was something Grant & I discussed in length as a young dating couple in love who fantasized about what our future family was going to look like - We assumed we'd be able to have biological children and thought it would also be neat to be able to provide a forever home to at least one adoptive child. Little did we know, God planted that seed in our hearts for a specific reason - God softened our hearts and allowed us to see the beauty of adoptive children as a part of our future family in order to prepare us for today. For many couples the decision to adopt is a difficult choice to make and it often follows years of infertility treatments and procedures - But when Grant & I envisioned our future family, adoption was definitely a strong contender in helping us fill our home with the laughter, joy & innocence that only children can bring. In my heart and in my mind, my journey towards motherhood through adoption just feels right.
Good night family & friends.
