Happy ICLW! I am excited to participate again this month...I took a little while off because I didn't feel like I was able to spend the time blogging that I would have needed to.
So much has changed for me during the past year...and to be honest, I sometimes feel like life is too good to be true. I totally understand if you don't want to read this post because you are having a hard time. If I had come across this a few months ago, I am sure I would have had to pass it by.
About a year ago, I made the decision to go against my OB's recommendations and start seeing an RE. I am SO glad that I did...he was able to diagnose me with a chromosome insertion, which totally impacted our decisions about how DH and I were going to become parents. In June, we started meeting with an adoption agency and were approved to adopt by August. The agency told us that the average wait time was about 18 months, so we were all set to spend quite a bit more time as just a family of two. On October 28, we got a call from our caseworker saying that we had been chosen by a birthmom to adopt her baby! Our son was born on November 8, and he has been the greatest blessing in our lives. We love J SO much! Then, on December 23, I found out that I was pregnant! I didn't get my hopes up because the RE had said that there was a 2:3 chance that I would have a m/c anytime I got KU, but we were able to see our baby's heartbeat last week. I am now 8 weeks pg and am starting to feel cautiously optimistic.
So, that is me in a nutshell. Life is good, and I am so grateful for everything that has happened to my family...if you had told me what was going to happen to me a year ago, I wouldn't have believed you. :)
