I’ve always wanted to be a mom… Just never thought I would be 28 years old and still wanting it so bad. It wasn’t in my plans at all, in fact it never even crossed my mind that this could possibly happen to me, that I would be child-less for so long.
I’ve been married 8 1/2 years, almost at a decade and it’s still just me and my husband. I have tears in my eyes just thinking about it, not because it was horrible but because it’s been WONDERFUL. We’re not perfect and we fight and bicker but we LOVE each other. He is still to this day my best friend and to me going through 8 1/2 years of struggling to try and become parents and overcoming more obstacles then I care to describe and us still coming out of it as best friends, means soooo much more to me than anything I have ever known. God knew I would need a rock, a firm foundation, a shelter, someone to carry me when I couldn’t go on any longer and everyday I appreciate my husband more and more.
I believe God has given me all these years as a gift so that I will forever cherish and treasure my husband for what he has done for me.
I also believe that now more than ever we are ready to become parents.
We’re ready to foster to adopt.
A couple years ago I slightly mentioned this whole foster to adopt thing to my husband and he was so mad and furious at me for even mentioning it. He wanted a child of his own so bad, it breaks my heart to even think about it. I remember the exact moment when I prayed and asked God, if you want us to foster a child then have him come to me about it and I will not mention ever again until he says it first. A couple months ago we were sitting on the couch and he goes, so whatever happened to that foster to adopt thing? The second he said it, it was like God brought me back to that prayer and I even told him that, I’m like this is God’s answer, this is as clear as day!
And so our adventure begins. This wednesday is our orientation to the program. It is quite a long process to go through with classes and home studies but we are both on board and excited as ever!
It might not have been my official plan on how to start my family, but I know for a fact that it’s God’s plan and I can’t wait to start this new adventure!
I’ll definitely keep you updated!
