We Are Adopting Our Nephew

I always wanted to be a mom, but 2 days after our wedding on December 12, 2016, I got the PCOS diagnosis that changed it all. Being discouraged was an understatement. The doctors said it wasn’t impossible for us to get pregnant, but would be hard.

We switched doctors, and then in March 2020, we had a miscarriage after conceiving naturally. I didn’t even know I was pregnant until I had two periods back to back and had this feeling to take a test I had in our bathroom. Sure enough, it was bright and positive. I was shaking all the way to my doctor, where I got blood work done that confirmed I was, in fact, losing our baby.

2 days later, the world basically shut down because of Covid, so I got into a deep funk that I didn’t know if I’d ever get out of. But I did, and we decided to see a specialist. They weren’t sure if one of my tubes was blocked or not unless they did surgery (which we decided wasn’t the route we wanted to take), and so that was another hurdle.

God never ceased to amaze us. After 3 years, around the same time we miscarried, we got asked to take in my husband’s week-old nephew. We went through all the steps that needed to be taken, and a month after meeting him, we got to bring him home. Now we’re in the process of adopting him, and even though we still haven’t had any children biologically yet, I still believe that God is a miracle-working and on-time God, and it WILL happen!
