My husband and I are in month 19 of trying to conceive
Always, in the back of our minds we always knew. We always knew that the answer wasn’t to “wait around” or “take a ton of medicine that could really harm me”. We knew that we are supposed to adopt.
We talked and talked about it. We went to a meeting about it. We thought long and hard about it. YES! We’re both on board.
The only problem?
The $25k that it costs to adopt. Yes, we are savers. We have dreams (big ones)! $25k is a lot.
The other problem?
Time. It is going to take a LOT of time to save this money, it is going to take TIME to be picked as a family. What we have come to realize is that it may take a long time, and that is okay. However we can create our family is okay by us.
In the meantime I am going to get as healthy as possible (and so is J) and continue to just do what we are doing. If we get pregnant that’s great. We won’t stop our process..it may push things back a little, but we really think this is what we are meant to do. If we have a biological child or not.
