Today Dan and I were able to turn in our application, complete with references! We're so thankful we have such amazing friends that are willing to give good (hopefully!) references for us. We're just at the beginning of this journey and I'm expecting it to be long, but totally worth it by the end.
I can't even begin to describe how happy and excited I am about this whole process. I get so emotional when I really think about what we're doing. I'm so thankful we've had these infertility issues the past few years. Otherwise, we probably wouldn't be in this process right now. I can already feel a bond forming with the baby that we will one day adopt. It's such an amazing feeling! We have received the best support from our family and friends - I cannot thank you enough!!
