Topic: Leap of Faith

I just worked out how I was going TTC once again in Sept. I am very happy about that. I had given up trying so I could handle a situation with my pregnant daughter. I decided it was best that I stand by her but not try to fix the problem...then last night I was sent an application to be considered for adoption what will be a very sick Down Syndrome baby boy to be born in a couple months...I have little money, my homestudy would need updated, my daughter and fiancé are still here but planning to move out soon, my house needs some repairs...the list could go on and on...I decided not to stress over it...I prayed and I know if God wants this to happen he will open the doors....   I hope I hear something soon though as I hate to put TTC on hold. I have this overwhelming desire and energy to clean house today....lol...

Re: Leap of Faith

Im pretty sure I read about that boy today. Im confused tho are you considerig the adoption over TTC or both?

Re: Leap of Faith

It couldn't be the same baby as it is a local private agency with families they know. I don't know what I am going to do for sure but since I am not going to try until the first part of Sept. it will give them a month to make a decision. They are on a time crunch to find a family. I am still planning on TTC unless they call me soon.

Re: Leap of Faith

I'm so glad to hear this, old mama!
Best of luck!!

Re: Leap of Faith

A friend of mine sent me info on facebook about a downs baby due in September with a serious heart defect. I just feel so sad for this baby and I hope he finds amazing, loving parents. I don't know if this is the same baby, but I know you would be a blessing in his life. I wanted to apply for adoption myself, but I didn't already have a home study and that was a requirement.

Praying this works out for you!

Re: Leap of Faith

The baby I am talking about didn't come through Facebook as birthparents are being super fussy about who they choose but a Down's baby with a heart defect would be pretty common. I doubt we will be chosen for ours as I am pretty sure I can't get my homestudy updated in time. It was nice thinking about it and I do love a challenge. Over the years this is the type of child I would have chosen for my family...and have. I am still dealing with a pregnant daughter who I thought I had back on track and heading in a good direction but things were bad with again yesterday...ugh...my time for TTC is short because of my age...it is hard to decide whether to go on or not.

Re: Leap of Faith

I'm really sorry. I know it is a hard decision. Thinking of you and sending positive thoughts your way.
