all aboard!

Fertility treatments were one roller coaster; I've heard adoption is just as fun! So we are stepping up and ready to board the new roller coaster ride! Greg and I are leaving next Saturday to fly to Florida to interview a few agencies. Why Florida? Well they have some of the best adoption laws and they do out of state placements. This is very important to us, since we know we won't always live here. That way when we move we won't have to start all over with a new agency and lose the time and money spent on one here. Since Greg deployed in 2006, we have fallen in love with the Tampa area. I don't know why, it just as soon as we land there, I am happy. I've felt drawn there since then and maybe now I know why. Maybe our child is there waiting for us? At least that is what I am telling myself. I am very excited to take this step, as small as it might seem, it is the beginning of our new journey. A journey that actually has a happy ending.

Florida is calling your name. I have a feeling your baby is here...just waiting for you.

Prayers for you to make all the right decisions while you are in the SUNSHINE state.

Hugs,

Hey - I'm in Florida :D I came across your blog through today's Connection's Abound. My husband and I are slowly hanging up our IF hats and putting on our adoption hats. We are considering Commonwealth... where are you looking at?

Good luck! Also, listen to Lanie: It's very hot here!

Wow, Florida, huh? Very cool. Welcome to this journey. We are on the same journey and it has been hard but way better than fertility treatments. With adoption, you know you WILL be a mommy someday. Good luck! Buckle up and enjoy the ride. :)
