I wish I had an exciting adoption update to share, but here is a little brief nonetheless!
For some back history, I talked a little bit about our journey in this post, when I proclaimed that I was done with infertility treatments. We started adopting from Nicaragua and things were grand. We even decided that we were going to adopt siblings! Two kids under five as first time parents! Double the fun or Crazy with a capital C? You’re choice.
Well, all was fine until it wasn’t. Adoption is a rocky process as is, but recent law changes impacted our situation. We still haven’t received our final approval from the Nicaraguan government. We have heard nothing. Zilch. Nada. We certainly aren’t giving up, but we are keeping our options open; when you want a family, you are willing to do anything.
It was that very thought that landed us in the stirrups of a fertility specialist. I started working with an awesome doctor in Winston-Salem over the summer and I pick up with my new doctor here in Tennessee next week. A not so small part of my heart wants us to get that approval so we can continue down the path of bringing our Nicaraguan little ones home. Once you open up to the idea of adoption, you can’t look back.
So what is the point of all this? We’re at a fork in the road. Cheers to having no idea what next looks like!
