So you spend the majority of the first part of your life trying not to get your girlfriend or wife pregnant because you don't want it to interfere with life, but then when you decide that you are ready it doesn't happen. Weird.
I always knew that I wanted to adopt my first, but I forgot that it is a two-way street and that I had to convince my wife that adoption was a good option. Through the wait and struggle of getting pregnant we eventually agreed to pursue adoption. Before we could get beyond printing out initial papers we were on our way to the hospital to meet with the birth mother. What a miracle.
We understand that this doesn't happen and we appreciate how lucky we are. I am super excited to be a dad! I am ready.
