Some of you may be aware that we have been trying to become pregnant for the past 3 years. This has been a challenging experience for us; as we share a strong desire to have children. We have discussed and prayed about this trial often; and we feel in our hearts, at this time, that adoption is the right path for us to have an eternal family.
We have started the adoption process with LDS Family Services, and we are currently in the approval process. It won’t be long before we are approved; perhaps in the next couple of weeks! Adoption is such a blessing. We feel privileged to have the opportunity to adopt in our lives. We know that adoption is the way that children will come into our home; and this is Heavenly Father’s plan for us.
We have heard many stories of couples that become pregnant after they have been approved for adoption. While these are wonderful experiences, this is not our intention. We have both had confirmation that adoption is the right choice for us at this time.
We have been told by our social worker that more than half of adoptions come through family and friends, and their acquaintances. We are excited about this opportunity in our lives, and we are anticipating our little miracle.
In addition to our family blog, we started a blog that has information about us for birthparents. Feel free to check it out, and share it, if an opportunity arises. www.paigeandnick.blogspot.com
