why we're not adopting right now

Let's start with some exciting news....

I'm pregnant! {Yes! You read that right!!}

At the beginning of May I wrote this, 
"We've decided to go with a domestic infant adoption, but I wouldn't be surprised one bit if those plans completely changed :) His plans are better than ours...right??"

I will be completely honest -- I wrote that and never thought for one single second that I would become pregnant. Never. Ever. Ever. 

When we decided to adopt, we were serious. It wasn't a back up plan. It wasn't something that we would continue with if we still didn't get pregnant. 

We were falling in love with our forever baby.

So now you might be wondering....so...if you were so serious about adoption how did you get pregnant?!? Huh?!? Huh?!?

GOOD QUESTION!

I only have one answer: by the grace of God.

I can honestly say were weren't really surprised -- we were S.H.O.C.K.E.D. I'll go into all those "finding out" details in another post :)

Right now I want to clear some things up about our adoption journey - it's been put on hold. Our profile has been pulled from the books and we're no longer a waiting family. If something were to happen {and it very well can} we'll contact our social worker and she will have our profile accessible to birth mothers again.

If you've asked us about our adoption journey in the last few weeks thank you! If we fibbed a little to keep our secret forgive us.

Ryan & I both thought we had this whole thing under control and the perfect adoption plan in the making. Looks like God was the one really in control this whole time.


Stay tuned for finding out details and my first weekly update {can't believe I'm doing one of these!!!}
