A WAY Overdue Update!!!

A really good blogger friend of mine, sent me an email this morning to check in on me...it's been FOREVER since I've blogged!!! I have just been busy with work, family, and well, just LIFE!!!

My parents and grandparents have been in town for the past week, so I'm also trying to soak up every single minute with them possible :)

I did want to give a quick update on our adoption and fertility journey.

Our application fee is PAID and I ordered our adoption/life picture book yesterday. So we are moving forward with the adoption process and I couldn't be happier. Not to brag, BUT, we spent so much time on our adoption/life picture book that I can't imagine a birth mother not choosing us :) In all seriousness, I think our book is the perfect reflection of our lives, marriage, and who we are. I am so anxious for it to arrive so I can submit it to the agency. Once that is done, we will officially be ready for a birth mother to choose us. SO EXCITING!!!

We are also moving forward with our last IVF treatment. I FEEL as if my body is doing great with the new colitis medicaiton I have been taking and am scheduled for another colonoscopy next week, June 1. If my gastrointerologist gives us the green light, we'll be starting our IVF treatment immediately.

Who knows...we may be blessed DOUBLE this year! Wouldn't that be a blessing???

I had a friend who adopted a little boy with his wife as they had been having problems conceiving. ANyways, brought their little boy home, a few months later, she is pregnant with twins. Now they have an active brood of three little boys! How quickly life can change.

Sounds like you are enjoying life with family. Will you share your life picture book with us? I'm sure every birth mother will love viewing your profile. Good luck!!

I wish we could all see your book. It sounds amazing!!! And yes, God may have BIG plans for you this year...a double blessing would be amazing! Exactly what you deserve. :) I have read so many stories where that happened. They always make me smile. :)
