We're Going To Adopt!!!

As most of you know Ryan & I have been trying to get pregnant for about 4 years now. We have been through some infertility, but after 6 months of that I physically and emotionally needed a break! We currently are still on infertility "break" but will go back the end of May for a consultation to see what other options we have. In the mean time, we have decided to adopt! I have always said that I would adopt one day, I just didn't know that might be Gods plan for me. Ryan & I met with some new friends this week who adopted, and had a wonderful experience so after much discussion Ryan told me he wanted to adopt also!!! Then his next question was, "do you want a boy or girl? " :-) We decided we want to leave that in God's hands to bless us with whatever he see's fit. You would have thought I just found out I was pregnant! :-) I cried myself to sleep that night and couldn't quit imagining that baby in my arms. Adoption is a long process so if you will just keep us in your prayers throughout this time. Thanks, and I will keep you posted!!!

I couldn't be more happier! You guys are such great people that any child would be so lucky to have as parents. I want all details as they come available. By the way, after reading Rick's blog today, I decided once I "retire", I will blog. Look for me in a few months :). I love you guys!

Congratulations! I am Rick's sister from Montgomery. Check out my blog and link to Angie and Chris. They, too, have struggled with infertility for years, and are now pregnant and adopting! As members of the Church, they could probably give some good adoption advise about agencies...

Congratulations! What a big decision! I am so proud of both of you. We need a baby girl in this family but believe me boys are just fine indeed! Y'all are in our prayers and the right sex at the right time will come your way. Love you,

Hi Kelly and Ryan! Joe just shared you blog with me and I am so excited to be able to catch up with you guys. I have one too, so you will have to peek at it so that you can see our boys.

By the way, I am terribly excited that you have decided to adopt. My brother and I are both adopted and it has been a wonderful experience for our family. I wouldn't change it even if I could. Love, Dana

Good for you guys! You know, our preacher at University in Montgomery was told they couldn't have kids, so they adopted 2 and then she got pregnant, not once but twice. You just never know what God has in store. I think the greatest thing is what you will mean to that little boy or girl who you will provide a wonderful home for!

I'm so glad that God made our paths cross! And I am so happy for you & Ryan with this new journey you are about to take. It will be such an amazing blessing. I love you already!
