The other day we got a new "like" on our Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/#!/ThompsonFamilyAdoption. I don't know her personally, but I knew exactly who she is. She was in the waiting families book and recently was placed with a baby. Do I sound like a crazy woman? Probably. Anyway, she has a unique name and their profile struck a chord with me because they also have a biological son. They've suffered devastating losses, it truly broke my heart when I read their profile. I noticed when they moved to the "congratulations" section of the list and was so happy for them! In fact, I think I may have referenced it on this blog.
She read the article about us in the Fargo/Moorhead newspaper and wanted to reach out to us. Amazing.
Over the past two weeks Jamie and I have been in contact with many adoptive families, their stories are all so different, but all have shared a similar ending: IT WAS WORTH IT!
When we had our miscarriages I felt like I was initiated into a club that I never wanted to join. Now I feel like I've been blessed to join a new club, one with hope, possibilities, understanding and support. It's like a group of kindred spirits. Good stuff.
