BTRT Patterns (on Etsy)

Wednesday, 4 July 2007
Just a little bit about our adoption plans, since that is the motivation for my Etsy shops!
While struggling with infertility, prior to conceiving Rowan, we drew our line in the sand in terms of treatments and costs, believing it better to invest the energy and hopes and money into a route that would produce a child ~ so we had decided on adoption if our limited treatments didn't work out.
They did and we were blessed with Rowan in our lives.
However pregnancy was a nightmare for me and a future one would be a risk, not to mention the whole infertility thing and the fact that we live hours away from treatment.
So our next step to build our family was relatively easy.
Back to our adoption plans!
After soul searching and internet searches we found our way to an agency in Georgia (USA) ~ An Open Door. Once our home study was completed, we did our (mountain of) paperwork and registered with this agency.
Now we are waiting for a match!
We may be chosen by a potential birthmom or by the agency if the pbm chooses not to make a choice. This part makes me saddest, that both mom and baby have to know such loss in a time of joy for our family.
As we are in Ontario, there will be immigration and other details to manage but our hope is to have our baby home by about 3-4 weeks of age.
We are ready, our arms are waiting to hold our little one that we know will come to us when the time is right.
Patience is difficult ~ it is like a never ending pregnancy! All the expectation without a due date!
In the meantime, we treasure our little Rowan, we work, we raise some money and we wait and dream about our baby.
