We had a long (inebriated) talk last night, and it was really good. Good to reconnect, I feel like we’ve been spending a lot of time apart lately. Also good to get our feelings and some things out in the open. For some reason a little lubrication seems to facilitate important talks. In vino veritas!
And can I just say that I really love my husband. He is amazing, and I can’t imagine my life without him. He’s my rock. Ok, ok, enough Valentine’s Day sappiness.
Anyway, the big news is, we’ve officially decided to also pursue adoption. As I posted earlier, we were playing with the idea not long back, but Andrew was concerned with juggling doctor’s appointments (assuming another IVF) on top of social worker visits/home study appointments etc.
Now we’re just ready. We want to grow a family, however that was meant to come about. Besides, even if I do become pregnant, I don’t think we could survive another round of infertility hell for child #2. And we want two children. Well, optimally, we want two. If some wacky combination of fertility treatments and adoption miraculously brought 3 or 4 into our lives? We’d happily make it work. And if we’re absolutely meant to only have one? Such is life.
Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans.
