We are parents

I should have blogged about this long before now, but life has been crazy and busy...crazy-busy. That about sums it up. I am sitting here next to our sleeping 2 month old daughter, Mira. 

Yes! We. Are. Parents! In July of 2014, an expectant mother connected with us thru a mutual friend. She was about 5.5 months into her pregnancy. Shortly after contacting us, the three of us decided that we would continue on the journey together. We all met with the adoption agency and became officially matched. The journey to through the match was a long one that deserves a post all of its own. I will say it wasn't easy for anyone, but it was worth it. I can't wait to write all about it.

On November 4, 2014 our daughter was born. That is also a story all its own, with way to much info and emotion to put into this blog entry. Let's just say Mira's birth was the most exciting, emotional, and unforgettable experience my husband and I have ever been a part of. 

We brought Mira home from the hospital, and time has just flown by. All of those years of infertility and loss that led us to adoption, that led us to seemed like it was forever to get to her, and now she is already 2 months old. When I think back over 6 years ago when we began trying to start a family, well, it just doesn't seem like it was that long anymore. A funny thing happened on the way to infertility, we ended up exactly where we are supposed to be at this moment with our daughter.
