A little more than a year ago, we began trying to start a family. The time felt right to bring a child into the world and share with it all that we have and all that we are. Then this spring, we learned from our doctor that most of the roads to biological childbirth were closed to us. It was a trying time, during which we weighed a handful of alternative routes, but today we know which path to take.
We’ve decided to pursue international adoption. Of the options presented to us, we feel this one speaks the most to our own personal values and beliefs. We believe this is the shape our family and our love is meant to take. Over the months ahead, we plan to cut back on expenses and save the funds we’ll need to follow this road through to the child we’ve dreamed of.
As many of the costs associated with international adoption are high, we also plan to hold a fundraising event in a few months. We’ll share more information in the months ahead, but we think a “Love” themed art show will be most appropriate, given the wondrous allotments of love and talent among the people we hold dear.
As we travel this path into the future, we thank you all for your love and support. In time this path will converges with that of another — of a very special child meant to be a part of this family’s love.
