Paul and I decided to adopt recently, after dealing with infertility issues (for the second time). It’s a very difficult thing and going through it the first time (for 2 1/2 years) was bad and felt a year and a half was long enough the second time around.
After much thought and prayers, we finally decided to look to Ethiopia, a country with a rich heritage and high needs. I’ll be updating our process as things go on and really look forward to posting a picture of our 4th (and final) child someday.
Hey Paul & Signe–
How very cool. We have some friends in IL who’ve adopted through Ethiopia a few years back…they wound up with a brother and sister, who were I think around 6 and 9 when they arrived.
I can’t tell when this post went ‘live’ (and this is my first time reading your blog, Signe), so I’m not sure how long you’ve been in the process, but I know it was fairly long and drawn out for them (which isn’t to say it wasn’t worth it or anything)…I hope things fall into place well for you!
