The Beginnings

First, some background. We are a typical couple, house, 2 cars, brothers(only) and sister in law. The one thing that we don't have is children. While some might think this is an ideal situation, we are not of that group, and decided that we wanted to have a child.

The problem is, I have an issue, I am sterile.

According to the Doctor, we have 2 options, I have a $18,000 surgery with a 38% chance of success, or we adopt.

By the title of this blog, you should be able to tell what we chose.

Decisions, Decisions

We made the decision to use Childrens Hope International as our agency. We have heard many good things about this one, and the application fee is only $100. We downloaded and read the application here and were also sent 2 copies in the mail.
