ICLW

It's been a really long time since I have done one of these..between getting sick last year (which you can read about here, here and here) and just working a lot, I have been neglecting my blog & I am glad to be back & part of ICLW.

So welcome!

A bit about me...31, PCOS, Endo, no left tube and ovary, no spleen and now a blood clot survivor
About the DH...31, severe azoo

A little over a year ago after over a year in the international adoption process there was a little girl that we got a referral for & sadly could not accept. After this, we left the program in Colombia, planning on taking a short break & then going to domestic adoption. Once I found out that I had to have my spleen removed & then developed clots, that break went from a few months to over a year. As I get stronger from everything last year, we are slowly starting to think about the adoption process again. We had decided that I needed to be 100% before starting up, so it's looking like that may happen later this year or beginning of next.

So for now...we are just 'in-between-ers'

Ill end with a random fact about myself & hope you share one about you :)

I met my husband, married him, went on our honeymoon & were home the day we had been together 6 months!

Changes....

Changes, they're a happenin'

I have now been off the blood thinners for almost a month...slowly starting to get my life & body back & it feels great!! As I start to heal both mentally & physically, we have started to talk about adoption more.

It's weird & comforting to talk about adoption. There was a point last year when I thought I would never be a mom. I was angry for all I was dealing with medically, I was angry for not being able to have a child, I was pissed about the adoption process & all we had been through previously. But as things have gotten better our thoughts on things, my thoughts on things, they have changed.

I am starting to get excited about the thought of adopting again. I am starting to think about the blog here & coming back..I am hopeful for the future for the first time in a while.

While the DH & I still have a lot to talk about when it comes to adopting...I think we are close to having a plan and hopefully a child within the next few years.

I cannot thank you all enough for the support through this bumpy journey & sticking by me! Thank you!!
