Five years!! Can you believe it has been five years since we let the world know about the journey we were taking to become family? Five years ago we started this blog as a way to share with friends and family about our adoption process and hopefully to share more about our life as a family of three. I had no idea when I started this blog that we would be matched by the end of the month.
It seems like an eternity ago that we were at the beginning of our journey where your heart jumps every time the phone rings. Every day was filled with prayers for our future child and his/her birth mom. Every day was just another lesson in patience. (For the record, I am STILL learning how to be patient.) Every day we would waiver between hope and despair.
If someone had told me five years ago when I started this blog that I would be the proud momma of TWO and that we would end up taking a twenty something year old under our wing, I would have never believed it! Five years ago I was in a pretty dark place. Desperately clinging to any glimmer of hope I could find.
When others found out that we were struggling on our path to parenthood, they shared their stories and struggles with us. Many of which were going through this at the same time as we were. Since then, every single one of them has become a parent. (And sometimes more than once!) Pretty awesome when you think about it.
When we started writing, we intended to utilize this blog to share with friends and family. It has become so much more. We have met people that we would have NEVER encountered otherwise. I am so glad that we have a platform to share our journey and to share our family. Thanks for joining our journey!
