We are blessed to have three biological children. Each of us have a beautiful daughter from before our marriage.
Before we ever got married, we both expressed how we wanted to grow our family.
It is not uncommon to hear our daughters arguing over who is more excited
Shortly after our marriage, we
started trying to have more children. After a year of trying, we saw a fertility doctor and with his help got pregnant
on our first attempt and that brought us Tucker. After his first birthday, we tried again for over a year with our fertility doctor to do multiple IUI and IVF but we are advised that getting pregnant again was unlikely.
We had been talking about the possibility of adoption before we had Tucker. We mourned after we learned we
wouldn’t have any more biological children, but we weren’t ready to give up. We knew we still had room in our hearts and room in our home for another baby. Both our girls want another little brother or sister and we want Tucker to have someone closer to his age to grow up with too. Plus, there are a lot of cousins being born right now; they can all grow up together.
We talk about and pray for the child you are carrying each and every day and have for a long time. We pray that you choose us to raise that child. Our children are the same way – completely bought in to the plan. They can’t wait to meet their baby brother or sister. It is not uncommon to hear our daughters arguing over who is more excited or who is going to teach the baby how to walk, talk, ride a bike, etc. It is fun to talk about with them and somedays it is hard to tell who is more excited, us or them.
