I can honestly say that I didn’t picture myself here 10 years ago. I guess we can all probably say that to some extent. If things had gone according to “my plan”, we would have two kids in elementary school by now, but our life has taken a different path. I can remember my husband and I having the baby discussion 10 years ago and deciding that it was the right time to start a family. We were still young, had decent jobs, and lots of family and friends to support us. However, the years passed and it was still just the two of us. Don’t get me wrong, I have loved the years Mike and I have had together and we never wasted a moment. We have grown closer through our fertility struggles and our personal victories, and I can’t dream of being without him. And now that I see where we are, I am thankful that this is our path. It has not been easy and I know we have many bumps left in the road, but what an awesome journey! God truly does know what he’s doing, but it takes us an awfully long time to see that. Learning to let go has been difficult at times and many tears have been shed in anger and frustration. I have to remind myself to remain faithful and keep walking on the right path and not “my path”. We are embarking on one of the greatest adventures by adopting and raising a child, and I feel so blessed to be where I am now.
