New update

As many of you are aware, it's been awhile since I've posted or updated any thing on our journey. For that I'm sorry but don't get your panties in a wad (you will see why I'm trying to find a little humor soon enough) I am going to explain. Most recently my husband has been in the process of taking over a new company an becoming his own boss! (which I'm very proud of!) that has taken up so much of our time that my boutique business has been put on hold for awhile. We also learned of a possible adoption situation involving two baby girls due in June. We weren't really sure how things were going to play out so we didn't really get too involved until the birthmother really wanted to meet us. We were so excited that she wanted us to be the parents to not only one baby but TWO! Over about a months time we talked through a mutual friend and set up a meeting and doctors appointments. Well last week she stopped answering calls from everyone and completely slipped off the radar. That's when my heart broke all over again. I knew the worst but hoped for the best. It's been a week and a half since anyone has spoken to her and she has yet to tell us why she changed her mind. It's been a rough week and has really hit me hard that we've been working so hard to adopt for the past year and that after 3 years of trying to build a family we are still only a family of two. (sorry for the pity party) part of me wants to stop advertising our want to adopt but I know it won't help anything. It still kills me to tell others that this is our only option. I will never carry our biological children. But I know that one day we will have perfect children meant especially for us. I am going to try to be more frequent with the updates again to keep everyone in the loop. Thank you to all those who continue to pray for us we definitely need it.


  1. :(
    I know it sucks and I'm not going to give you any cliched advice that you're bound to get. Always remember that you are ALLOWED to feel whatever you are feeling and when you've either had enough or don't need to feel that way anymore you'll get a change of scenery. The only thing you can control is yourself.

  2. ((HUGS!!!)) When we were trying to adopt, I learned that some woman are emotional scammers. She very well could have changed her mind or there could be a reason why she isn't answering calls but only she and God knows the actual reason.

    Don't give up on the networking...we also endured many failed leads and dead ends and it hurt like hell. I will keep praying your networking pays off and your heart is full.
