Well, we are back in it. Waiting & praying, but this time we have a few more options. There's foster to adopt, private adoption & embryo adoption, all of which we are re-exploring. Either way there's still a lot of waiting & praying involved....and fundraising. With our first birthmom, we found her on our own so it was significantly less expensive. The rest of our options, we still have a ways to go to get to our goal.
Our hearts still ache for the daughter we lost but the last few days we have had comfort and a renewed sense of hope. We know we are going to get a kiddo one way or another and we are excited to be exploring ALL of our options again.
In the meantime, we just ask for continued prayers that we continue to heal and are able to look ahead to the future.
We are going to keep going with the baby bottle fundraiser, since that was an easy and successful one! We have more baby bottles, if you are interested in one or in passing a couple out, please let us know! Everyone's spare change has gone a really long way.

And we have to say thanks again. To whoever at the Fire Dept. gave us the giftcard: THANK YOU! So generous!! And to Jon & Sarah for all of their support while we explore more options and really just to ALL of our family & friends who have been hurting with us, cheering us up, and still rooting for us: We appreciate you all so much. It has been so nice getting back into the swing of things. We got to go to a friends BBQ (where we were shown even more love & support) a FUN concert with my aunt and uncle...Everyone has just been so good to us and helping us move on and be happy, I just hope you all really truly know how much it means to us.
