I'm thankful everyday for my son Devin and that Danilo and Maysa are home. However, my heart aches for the family's still waiting for their children. I can't even begin to understand what they are going through. I remember when their was so much uncertainty in Maysa's case and I was so stressed, depressed, sad, anxious and my mind and heart were going crazy with all the uncertainty. I honestly don't know how I got through it. I remember sometimes I would just go into a robot mode...just getting through the day was a task and I lived on the computer looking at timeline's, yahoo groups, adoption updates and news. I have put a list of a few blogs I follow on my links. I know their are more of you and my heart goes out to all of you. I follow these blogs daily waiting to read about any progress in their case's to bring their children home. I believe in my heart that all these children will come home and that they are all so fortunate to have their family's fighting to bring them home. I think sometimes when ones dreams and wishes come true we tend to forget about those who are still waiting for their dreams and wishes...for those of you still waiting...there are family's who are here still praying and waiting to see your children home with you soon!
After several years of infertility issues and unsuccessful pregnancy’s, I had my IVF miracle baby Devin, who is now twelve. Since I was a little girl I always had the desire to have lots of children, but things are not always as we plan them. Devin’s father and I split up when Devin was 3 years old and I wanted to have more children, but medically wouldn’t be able to. Adoption was a way that I could give a child a loving and nurturing home and family. My adoption journey began in September of 2005. After several disappointments and a lost referral I switched countries in 2007 from Panama to Guatemala. After what was the most emotional, exhausting and uncertain journey I have ever been on in my life, my family is now complete. Danilo arrived into our family on March 27th, 2008 and Maysa arrived into our family on September 5, 2008. Looking back I could have never made it though this journey of infertility and adoption without the support of other bloggers. My children are my life and I’m so thankful that we are all together as one family!
