I addressed this on my personal Facebook, but I wanted to go a little more in depth about this. I am somewhat of a homebody. I have maybe a handful of good close friends. That being said I have put a lot of my life out in the open. That is my choice of course. Like I said I do this in the hopes of helping someone else that's going through something similar and to help spread the word about our want to adopt. Back to the rumor issue. To set the record straight: I have only been pregnant 4 times and I have lost all 4 of our angel babies. I have NEVER lied about being pregnant or losing any our children. And as far as I know of you're either pregnant or not and I'm sorry but if you have a miscarriage you will know it! Its the worst pain physically and emotionally I have ever felt! I get so pissed when I see or hear of someone saying their pregnant and then a week down the road saying they miscarried just to cover their ass and get attention. It's not something I take lightly. There are also a few rumors that we are trying to solicite (sp?) other womens' children. WOW!!! That one was a low blow. How sorry of a person do you have to be to make up such a lie?? I could go to jail for doing that!!! We want a baby very much but I'm definitely not going around "snatchin' up babies". We pray everyday for a baby and hope to find him or her soon. I pray no woman has to endure the pain we have. As of now we have only had two failed adoptions and if you've read my blogs you know all about those situations and I won't go into the details if not don't be lazy look through my posts lol. I live my life almost as if it's an open book. I have no problems sharing parts of our lives. Sometimes I get a little emotional but what woman wouldn't? If someone ever has a question we have no problems answering them but please ask before you assume.  Thank you to all of you who continue to pray for us. Despite the drama we are very hopeful about the future and know that this will be the year that we add our first baby to our family!!!!!

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.
