It is truly amazing what a difference a year makes. Last year at this time we were adjusting to our new lives in NorCal, we just bought and remodeled our home and we were still childless. We’d stopped doing any infertility treatments because nothing was working (and besides who can afford to do infinite rounds of IVF?) We had recently started the adoption certification process (again) with a new agency, but were still months away from our final approval. I felt like the family I’d always dreamed of having was still so far out of reach. And then BAM!! Everything changed. I miraculously got pregnant, we adopted Grant and just like that this is MY family! You guys- I have a family!!?? WOW! I would have given anything to take a quick peek at this photo a year or two ago, just to know for sure that everything would eventually turn out ok. In my heart of hearts I knew that it would, I was just soooo tired of waiting. I guess that’s what faith is truly all about…knowing and trusting without seeing.
