    Good luck on adopting. My husband and I are currently adopting from overseas…it is so hard to trust certain things when you are not there…Good luck and I’ll pray for you and your soon to be little one.

  2. Missy-
    Good luck to you as well! My prayers will be with you, too. Let me know how your journey’s going sometime.

    I also noticed here that you were diagnosed with endometriosis. My best friend has been suffering with that her entire life. She has at minimum, two surgeries a year to relieve the pain of the adhesion’s. I send you my comfort and thoughts while dealing with this disease.
