Well, after my second follow-up to the miscarriage, I'm finally back to normal (a month later). So, my fertility specialist asked me yesterday, "What now?" "What do you want to do?" Adam and I had already decided we aren't making any decisions until after Christmas. We're just tired of thinking about it. A friend told me about a great Christian adoption agency in Bryan/College Station that only costs $12,000. All the others I have looked at are almost $30,000 ~ BIG DIFFERENCE! The cost has been one of our biggest issues with adoption.

Please pray for a young girl (18 years old- senior in high school) in our area that is pregnant. She needs guidance and wisdom from our Heavenly Father...whether to put the baby up for adoption or to keep the baby. We are praying for God's Will in the whole situation, for all involved.

Anyway, back to the doctor. I told him all of the above and he was very encouraging. He then told me to "keep trying." He said it's not absolutely impossible for me to get pregnant, just challenging. I told him my mom's story ~ adopted twice and then got pregnant (with me). So who knows what God's plan is!! :)

Please continue to pray for us. I think we are doing pretty good. We have good moments and sad moments, but mostly good. Adam and I have grieved differently, and not at the same time, which is good so that we were able to encourage each other. I think the holidays will be the hardest...we would have been working on the nursery over Christmas, etc...

Thank you for continuing our journey with us. Can't wait to see what God is going to do!

"May you grasp how wide and long and high and deep My love for you is; a love that surpasses knowledge...YOU CANNOT ASK OR IMAGINE THE THINGS I AM PLANNING FOR YOU!"

Ephesians 3:18-20

Much love,
