“What a difference a year can make.” This is a saying I have said many of times but this time I am truly amazed about what a difference a year has made for us. This time last year we were looking into expanding our family with help the of fertility treatments. We experienced much heartache during that time and questions of why? Why us, why could we have one child but now we can’t have another, why aren’t these treatments working? Adoption had always been talked about between David and I and had never really been much more then just talk; but after a few months of unsuccessful tries with fertility treatments I thought maybe I should look further into adoption. And after doing some digging and TONS of research we knew exactly that a new addition to our family would be coming via adoption! We didn’t start the process until late spring/early summer and have been hard at work trying to bring our boy home ever since! So that brings us to today, its three days until Christmas and we are amazed at what a difference a year can make. These last few months have been stressful and amazing all at once and everyday we keep getting closer to bringing our sweet boy home. I’m sure we will be repeating our words next year at this time when we have our son home and celebrating his first Christmas with his us. But for now we are really amazed at how much our year has changed us from then to now!
Now for a little preholiday adoption update! We were hoping to have our dossier done and off to Aaron’s country by now. But that is not the case, we’ve hit a little road bump with some paperwork but we hope to have it fixed and put behind us next week sometime!:) Which means (fingers crossed tightly) that we hope to have our dossier done within the first few weeks of January!! So please say an extra little prayer that we can get over this road bump next week, so we can finally say we are in the home stretch to getting our boy home!!:)
We wish you all the happiest of holidays and hope that your 2012 is filled with as much joy and love as ours promises to be filled with!!
