FeBrUaRy 22

We headed to Grants Pass on Wednesday the 22 for our individual interviews in the adoption process. Our case manager wasn't lying when he said they would take an hour each...they did. We were able to meet our new case manager, Jodi. We each met with them and they asked us questions based on what we answered online in the questionnaires. I started crying during mine when I was asked how I've dealt with my infertility. It wasn't because I was sad, but because it has been a very spiritual and tender journey for me and my relationship with Nic. I wouldn't wish infertility on any couple but I wouldn't trade my experiences with anything. I know we have been given this trial because this was the only way the Lord could teach us certain lessons to better prepare us for fatherhood and motherhood. Do I want to experience being pregnant? OF COURSE! But what really matters is that I want to be a mother and have a family. It was a great meeting.

We were supposed to have our home visit on the 23 but unfortunately was cancelled. Sad day. We will continue prepping our home.

It is hard for us to believe how many "hoops" we have to jump through in order to adopt. Sometimes it feels like we are in the circus! Haha But then I'm reminded by a wonderful woman (cough*my mom*cough) that it shows who really has the desire to become parents. I would say that we definitely fall into that category. We can not wait to see how our journey unfolds...
