I have been following this adoption blog for about a year now, she has a great way of writing. Many of the themes she talks about hit home with me. And I love that she is helping others become families, she has such a passion for adoption and helping others. She shared this today and I wanted to share it with those who read this blog too. She is one of my hero's and I am glad that others see this too.

We made our decision just over a year ago this week. We had both been thinking about what direction we should head, continue with infertility treatments or begin adoption. We had suffered our most recent miscarriage two months earlier and had had time to grieve, time to process and time to reflect.
While out on our date night to one of our favorite restaurants, I still remember which table we were sitting at, when I brought up the idea of going forward with adoption. Oh how little did I know how much that we were getting into!
We have been blessed with new friends, new experiences but most of all we have been humbled by the help and generosity of those close to us. Our words fail to express the thanks and gratitude that we feel, it has brought new understanding of our Savior's love for each of us. We are grateful for the experiences of the last year as they have helped us to grow as individuals and grow closer together as a couple.
Here is to the next year in our journey, right now we have the same hopes and dreams of adding to our family as we did last year. With more knowledge and experience under our belts now.
