Hi, All!

I may not be familiar to many of you, but I lived on this board for years in the five years DH and I were TTC. I was saved MANY times by the friends I made here, so I cannot help but lurk and cheer you all on!

My last post was in April on the day DH and I met for the first time with our adoption agency. We have a 7yo DD and now are adopting a baby boy from Guatemala. He was born 28 Aug. 2006 and is truly the most beautiful little boy I've ever seen. The process -- like TTC -- has its ups and downs, but it's just gratifying to know at the end of THIS journey, we will have a baby in our arms. DH and I plan to visit him in January and hope he'll be home for good in the spring some time.

During the time I was on the board, I met a women here who struggled with SIF issues related to both her and her husband. After trying IVF and then suffering a m/c, this woman and her DH adopted a little girl from China and were over the moon with joy. Well...she unexpectedly conceived a child naturally after doctors told her they had about a 5% chance of conceiving on their own. I write this b/c it shows that miracles are possible...so keep hope alive!

Baby dust galore to all of you.
(And if any other board graduates read this, let us know how you are doing!)

Congratulations Sara on your adoption! Life wouldn't be life without those ups and downs but I know that when you get that little guy in your arms, the downs will have been worth it all~
