Beth and are are getting old! Life hasn't gone as we planned for either of it but we are so happy to have each other. When has it really gone to plan for anyone... right?
We call this event “Schmitzer Miracle” because of our struggle to have children naturally. Children are a miracle. Beth has endometriosis and has tried to get pregnant for 11 years. She’s tried invetro 3 times, 2 being her own eggs and 1 actually being donated generously from one of our good friends because she just wanted to help Beth become a mom. We’ve had our Sister-in-law offer to be a surrogate. We’ve had a good friend also offer to be a surrogate. While these gestures are all Amazing we just wish it was easy for Beth to get pregnant as so many women out there.
We decided to adopt and were approved [July 2011] to adopt domestically here in the US! Now it’s a waiting, praying game.
I’d love to have Beth stay at home with our future child at least the 1st year but we both work full time. Luckily she’s a teacher with summer’s off, but the cost of adopting $25,000 - $35,000 will clear us out once we have our miracle.
We’re both 37 years old and hope to be able to be placed with 1 baby before our home study runs out in 2 years. That may be all we can afford unless we get some blessings from anyone touched to help.
Thank you in advance.
