Now we start the house cleaning for a few reasons
1) Our house should always be clean
2)The SW will be visiting
3) I can not wait to bring LynnMarie home
One of the questions I have gotten in the past that has started to bother me is the, aren't you going to miss being pregnant? Actually this bothers me a lot because this is none of any one's business. Hope I am not being rude, but I think the question is rude. The fact is that for some women, you become obsessed with being pregnant. Once you get married, the biggest question from people is "So when are you going to have kids?" Ya gotta be careful not to let that identify who you are. I am so grateful for the spirit of adoption and that my heart for adoption has changed in the past 7 years! I'm so thankful for being a part of this amazing journey which has literally changed parts of my life and brought some amazing people in my life, and made working even better.
First of all, we have not ruled that out at all. In fact Michael and I have never done the infertility stuff. That is the end of that question.
Will I miss it? I previously may have said yes but not any more. When you find the ultimate peace with adoption, its not even in your mind (until someone brings it up, ha!). This is the coolest feeling. Michael and I are starting a family. Its just a different way but the love we already have for LynnMarie is the same you have for your child.
Not many questions have bothered me and this was a question that was asked months ago and I figured if I wrote the post out, I may feel better.
This is better written than done. If you are in the same boat, do not let anyone take your joy. It may not be their intent but do not let those questions get you in a bad mood. I have done that in the past and wasted so much energy letting those questions bother me.
Okay, I will get off of my soap box now.
