One year ago today......

One year ago today...
Mike & I made the decision to pursue adoption. After thirteen years together and many medical procedures we decided that it was more important to be parents than to deliver a child.

One year ago today...
I remember sitting in a fertility specialist's office alone with Mike with tears in my eyes thinking that I would never get a chance to be a Mom, something I'd desperately wanted so bad. I remember being mad at my body, disappointed in the percentage of conceiving, I remember being just plain sad.

One year ago today...
I remember looking at Mike and hearing him say, "Let's adopt a little girl from China like Sara and Bill." Instantly, Mike made my heart smile.

One year ago today...
A friend of Mike's parents, Sara, recommended a local agency out of Denver, CCAI, and we questioned her how to get started and tried to get a clue as to how the process worked.

One year ago today...
Making the decision to adopt was an absolute leap of faith; we decided to trust our instincts as we delved into adoption. We had a really good feeling about CCAI after our first call. They were professional, helpful and patient...we had a lot of questions! Mike & I knew immediately that this was the agency for us.

One year ago today...
We began the process and never looked back. The paperwork is intimidating, but we always felt that CCAI was our partner and coach through the numerous steps.

Today...
We "patiently" wait for a file with a little Kaylah's face on it. We are LID, and hoping we get to bring her home this year. We have come so far and really look forward to becoming parents.

you gave me goosebumps Krissie! I hope that you don't have to be "patient" much longer!

What a treat to read a tiny bit of your journey to Kaylah. Praying you are matched soon!
