Every Day is a Gift

Life has changed!

We are so blessed. Not much I can say about the whole foster care thing except that we are hoping to adopt her.

She is so precious and we are so absolutely in love with her.

We decided about 18 months ago to begin the adoption route along with IVF. We've gone through the foster care/adoption route via our local county because it is fantastic and we know a few families who've adopted via foster care. I must say we've struck gold.

We still plan on doing IVF again - perhaps in February or March.

For right now we are so blissfully happy. We pray she is ours forever but only time will tell as her case is processed. We take each day as a gift and trust that God is working out the details.

Best of luck! I guess it's a long, slow process. Hope it works out best for everyone.

New to your blog. Wishing you the best. Each moment is a precious gift, whether it be one day or 50 years.

What wonderful news. Congratulations on her arrival, and hoping that the adoption works out. Best wishes for 2011!

I was clicking through "next blog" and came upon your site. As soon as I see Infertility, I had to stop :) I struggled with infertility myself suffering 6 miscarriages in total but God has given us 4 beautiful children. I don't know your circumstances but I hope things work out for you. I know the desire of motherhood all too well. I would love to share what worked for me....

Hi Jenny!

I don't know you, but I just stumbled upon your blog and this really made me smile. If it's okay with you, I'd love to follow you and to hear more about your experiences as you become a foster mom.

I'm just 20 myself, and I've never tried to have a kid, but I do have several friends who were adopted and who are incredibly grateful and in love with their step-parents.

Anyways, I can't pretend to know what you have been through, or what you will be like, but I wanted to let you know that I'm so excited for you.
