"Common Ground": my little corner of the blogosphere where I talk (a lot-wink) about the things that matter most to me: My relationship with my Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ, homeschooling, adoption, homemaking, parenting, "spousing." (yeah, yeah....I know that's not a word.....I made it up-it’s my blog-I can do things like that! Ha!)

Since my life isn’t all that different from yours, hopefully we can find some COMMON GROUND & learn from each other. Please share your thoughts!

Through the Lords’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not.

They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness!
Lam. 3: 22 & 23

Part 3.......

(Here are Parts 1 & 2 of our story.)

&, so, much to our dismay, we climbed back on the infertility roller coaster.

The next few months were some of the hardest we have ever endured.

I was ANGRY.

As more & more of my friends got pregnant
(& some people who didn’t even want to be)
& continued to have more children-

We, once again, could not.

And, we had suffered the trial of burying our baby.

The one we had wanted so badly.

The second bed in Ana’s room, remained empty.

Month after long month.

Finally, toward the middle of the following year (2005)…….
laying in bed one night,
I finally had the guts to broach a topic of with Dave that had been in my mind for several months-ADOPTION.

I said something like, “What would you think of adopting?”

He said, “Well, I’m sure not opposed to it, but I think it’s something we need to pray about & find out more about.” Wise man……

I let it go at that……& I silently prayed about it.

Tune in next week for more of the story!
(Thank you, Anna, for your comment.
I was also grieving the loss of the idea of any more bio kids, too.
But, like you said, God knew better all along!)

Thanks again for sharing more of your story Kim.

I found it was a process for me too leading to being actually ready to adopt...I couldn't think about it initially as I was grieving wanting to have biological children and I needed to come to that point of letting that go. God knew thankfully and His timing has been perfect.

Looking forward to part 4:)

Thanks,
Anna

Thanks for sharing so much. I know it is so difficult to talk about but so many of us have been on the same path. Having had miscarriages, births and then nothing, it was such an empty feeling and then to go through the grieving period and one day I too approached hubby and said "we so want a baby girl to complete our family, how do you feel about that". Our adoption road was NOT easy but we kept on as we felt God led us down this path for a reason and sure enough, 6 years later, we have completed our family with not ONE but TWO loving daughters. LOVE your blog and your love of God.
