An Adoption Story
We heard another uplifting family building story from a volunteer. Soon after being at a Resolve conference, someone contacted her to see if her family would be interested in adoption. That wasn't on their radar at the time, they had other "plans" of how to build their family, but they decided to follow up on the lead. The contact connected her to a potential adoptive situation in another state, and sure enough, the situation worked out. She commented that the minute she had her baby in her arms, she let go of the dream of being pregnant, and never had the desire to be pregnant again. They have a great open adoption situation, and she said she couldn't imagine life any other way. I love happy endings. She encouraged us to tell everyone we know that we want to adopt, because you never know when a situation could arise. Pretty soon I'll be at the gas station telling the people pumping gas next to me that we'd hoping to adopt. Great.
