Being a MomI was told at a very young age that for me to have a child it may take some "work." As in, infertility issues. As I walked through life my dream of having a baby drizzled away with each step. At age 28, I married my best friend of 11 years. It was amazing to feel so totally in love with someone like that. (Still am!) We discussed children right away and both decided that really if we wanted one that it would be best to adopt. There were plenty of children out there who need good parents and homes. And that was it.
Within 2 months of that conversation.... I got pregnant and our whole outlook changed. My son is over a year old now and I couldn't imagine a day without him or either of them. It is the most wonderful, scary thing when you walk out of that hospital with something so precious in your arms. To this day, I still can't believe they just "let" me leave with him. We are now in the process of trying to make a sibling!
Funny how life can change in an instant....
