Our plan has always been to adopt. Long ago, we decided a baby was probably not part of the plan. We have started and stopped pursuing adoption through foster care several times and decided to put expanding our family on hold two weeks ago. Then, randomly out of the blue, I received a box full of formula and bottles in the mail. We had a big laugh over that! Three days ago, a friend of a friend's friend reached out looking for a good home for her baby, due in about a month. Amazingly enough, despite a number of pretty serious barriers, everything seems to be falling into place and I am optimistic we may be bringing a baby home soon!
