Your post reminded me of Ginny Owens song:

The pathway is broken
And The signs are unclear
And I don't know the reason why You brought me here
But just because You love me the way that You do
I'm gonna walk through the valley
If You want me to

Cause I'm not who I was
When I took my first step
And I'm clinging to the promise You're not through with me yet
so if all of these trials bring me closer to you
Then I will walk through the fire
If You want me to

It may not be the way I would have chosen
When you lead me through a world that's not my home
But You never said it would be easy
You only said I'd never go alone

ya oh oh no

So When the whole world turns against me
And I'm all by myself
And I can't hear You answer my cries for help
I'll remember the suffering Your love put You through
And I will go through the valley If You want me to

Hi! You dont know me, I just stumbled across your blog. I wanted to tell you that as an adoptive mom(three times over!) that you are in for an amazing journey! Like TTC it has many ups and downs and its a huge roller coaster for sure(even if another kind!) I did carry one pregnancy to term and have a daughter from that---but I also went through multiple losses one as late as 23weeks. Our first adoption was of a 3yr old who we named Emily. I wanted to share with you our video that we sent out to our family announcing her adoption. Just like you I was inspired by Janelle and used the song amazing for this slide show! I wish you an AMAZING journey! CONGRATS on this decision, I'm now back in the ttc game and hoping for a sticky one---I don't know how to say this the "right" way. I just want you to know I wouldn't change my kids for THE WORLD. Im so grateful everyday for being brought to adoption.

Our story so far

  • Chris and I met in April of 2005, we fell madly in love and got married on May 12, 2007. We started trying for our honeymoon baby, which never happened. We kept trying on our own until January 2008 when we got help for infertility. We went through 5 IUI's and 3 IVF's. None of the IUI's worked, and the IVF's resulted in 2 cheimcal pregnancies and one blighted ovum, 3 early miscarriages. The last IVF cycle was in March/April 09 and between blood draws and injections had a total needle count of 60. After that didn't work, we were both done with the emotional roller coaster of treatment. We have decided to pursue domestic infant adoption and began our adventure in October 2009. It's March now and we have chosen an agency and submitted our application. Our home study starts very soon and we've already started the nursery!
