Approved for Adoption!

I feel like climbing to the top of roof and shouting for joy that this has finally happened. I received word today that we are official. We have been approved for adoption. Our profile will be up and active in a few days. Of course I will be searching daily and several times through out the day so find it. The letter should be arriving any day in the mail and reality is starting to sink in that we could be parents one day. I can’t even begin to express the happiness that I feel that this day has come. I know the day we are chosen will also be a blessed day in our lives.

We have had many road bumps along the way to get to this day. I now feel like we are moving forward with our life. I mean it has been so hard wanting to start a family and watching those around me accomplishing something that I have wanted my whole life. I see that it seems so easy for others, yet something so difficult for me. It has been draining both emotionally and physically. But now it seems like we are finally putting our energy in something that will actually help us start a family.

Now it is just taking it one day at a time and possible one year at a time. The average wait for couples are 18 months. We can do that, we have already spent 8 years trying to conceive. So get the word out, let anyone and everyone you know that we are looking for a baby. We are looking for a special birth mother who feels that she can trust us with her child and that her child will receive the love, stability and all that we can provide in life for her child.

Once our profile is up, I will add the link to this site. I am so happy and wanted to let everyone know of our joy!

Hope you don't mind I found your blog! My brother just adopted last year. He has some really good contacts. If you want some information, let me know. His son is special needs (Down Syndrome) but such a joy. We'll keep you in our prayers!
