I am 34 years old and have suffered through 2.5 years of infertility including 2 angel babies. My dream has always been to be a mom, and I never imagined that dream would be so difficult to attain. I am married to a wonderful man who is the best husband and daddy anyone could hope for. Our dreams came true when we adopted our son, Jackson, in August of 2010. Our lives became even more blessed and full when our daughter, Addison, was born in February 2011. Please join us on our journey - where surprises are just part of the fun!
I begin this new blog with a heavy heart, with feelings of loss, confusion and anger. I expect to end this blog with pictures of our child one day! This page is yet another attempt of mine to accept this journey we have been given. We cannot fight it. This is our path. So, if nothing else, I'd like to share our path with others...help others understand what it is like to be on our path. I have found so much strength and hope in others' stories. I have no doubt at the end of this journey, when we can post a picture of our smiling faces holding our precious child, others will find strength in our story. For now, I simply want to thank all of those people who have supported us through this difficult time in our lives. Your love has given us strength.
