On a group I’m on someone asked for a little background on a bunch of us that are adopting, etc. I’ve been feeling a little weird about my intentions in going through foster-care lately, so it was really good for me to write this and realize that what I had been feeling lately was not actually what happened. (Could I be any more vague?)
As long as I can remember, I’ve always feared/known that I would have a hard time having babies. We tried for 6 months and got pregnant with S(6 months felt like forever then…) He is 3 now and we have been trying since he was 6 months old(so that would be almost 3 years now) Last summer we started talking about our other options and exploring what we needed to do to ‘have’ more children (have children, like we want to start a collection. lol) and right around that time I was blessed to look outside of myself and within a couple weeks and met and talked to 3 different people involved in foster care. I quickly became convinced this was the way we needed to be going and we got started with the process. A few minor hold-ups happened, and we finally got our license in Dec of 2006 and We’ve had our boys in our home since the beginning of this month. I try soooo hard to NOT think about adopting them, but I know that if they ever leave our home they both will be taking a piece of my heart with them.
