Our Next Step

Josh and I have decided that once we are all settled in our place that we are going to put in for adoption. We are still going to continue our fertility journey and find another doctor who will hopefully be able to help us get pregnant, we figure worse comes to worse we will end up with 2 babies and I don’t feel like that is a bad thing. We are going to adopt in the states and will hopefully have our adoption closed in a couple of years. I am VERY excited but also nervous because it is still an emotional roller coaster. I am still having a hard time excepting that we are not pregnant from our last IVF cycle but as time goes on I have been able to heal little by little. I can’t wait to finally be able to hold my own baby even if they are not biologically mine.  It will probably be a couple of months before my next update but wish us luck on our new journey as well as our continued fertility journey.


  1. Good Luck with everything! I am sending you good JU JU!!! take care!

  2. Its a wonderful thing to adopt. I never even got the chance for IVF for it was too much of a risk me to become pregnant.I pray your guys journey goes in the direction you want. To hold a baby even if they are not your blood is the greatest feeling in the world especially when you know that it is you that they are looking to as their parents and that you will be the one to nurture and guide them throughout their lives. God Bless you two and prayers are with you both again. Sylvia

    Christina- just came across this via FB. You are an amazing woman! Ben and I wish you guys the best of luck. Its people like you that make me realize too many of us take for granted being able to get pregnant so easily. Anyway you end up with a baby, you will have a blessing in your arms that will be so lucky to have you and Josh as parents. My heart goes out to you as you continue your journey. Hang in there! All things good come in time! xoxo
