First comes love. Then comes marriage. Then comes baby in a baby carriage. So they say, right?! Our rhyme had a little different tune and a few more verses before we got to the baby carriage, which turned out to be a double baby carriage! Just as every family is unique and special in their own way, every adoption story is unique and special. When my hubby and I first began to date, we both knew that we wanted to get married and raise a family. From those early days of dating our dream was to have biological children as well as adopt. It was this incredibly strong feeling we both shared. This feeling grew even stronger after we were married. After we were married for a couple of years we knew something was missing and we knew that something was children. We thought we would first try to get pregnant, have one or two biological babies, and then adopt one or two children. This is when our rhyme changed and we got many unexpected verses along the way. It turns out the song is even more beautiful than we imagined and it never ends….
I want to share our adoption story with you. It’s confusing, overwhelming, exciting, happy, sad, funny, crazy, and pretty much every emotion that exists! I will continue to write about this journey along the way. If you have absolutely any questions for me, please ask.
