- Wedding: September 2015
I was going to go on anon for this post but I figure this is going to be a long journey and I should welome any support as myself…
I am getting married in 11 days to my whole heart who I love and adore and wake up grateful for every single day. He is the kindest, most selfless, honest man and I can not help but get teary just thinking about how extremely lucky I am to have him in my life…
About a year ago my fiance was noticing some issues so he went to the doctor and one test lead to another..and then another….and then another…and then curiosity lead us to question fertility…which involved more tests and well, bottom line…My wonderful, selfless, good hearted man is…sterile.
Life is weird…right? My whole life I dreampt of having a family. I so badly wanted to experience pregancy, carry a child, have my water break, and scream relentlessly as I gave birth to this gift… My fiance and I spoke often of having children and joked about pregnancy cravings and even acted out my emotional breakdowns over the last hypothetical brownie…lol
To say this was heartbreaking is an understatement….Sterile to us meant, no biological children. I believe in fate and for me, I am not comfortable with so much science going in to making me pregant..speaking only for myself… I think invitro and surrogcry and these medications are an amazing thing and what people are capible of these days is nothing short of miracles…but for us, we took this is a sign that since our bodies can not make a child, God’s plan is for us to adopt…the Universe..the stars…what have you.
So we are researching now… does anyone have experience adopting? Is anyone adopted, know any adopted adults/children.. Can you tell me about your experiences? Thanks in advance!
