Carter's Gotcha Day!
November is national adoption month and it is a month that we will celebrate every year. This month last year, we were pregnant with twins, that we had yet to find out we wouldn't get to bring home. Matt & I always talked about adopting one day, and said we would love to do it in theory, but it was just so expensive. 4 months ago we just felt this very strong urge to pursue adoption. We had been trying to get pregnant and couldn't figure out why we weren't pregnant yet, all of our levels were tested and all came back normal. 2 short months later our baby boy was born. God had this last year of our lives all planned out, even when we didn't understand. Matt & I often talk about if I would have gotten pregnant right away, we wouldn't even know this little boy existed. That breaks my heart. This little boy has become apart of us. Adoption is hard. It is stressful, and heartbreaking. It's hard being so unbelievably happy but knowing what it feels like to leave the hospital without a baby. We pray for his birth mom all the time. Because of her, we have our son. This little boy made me a momma again. This little boy makes my heart smile every single day just by looking at me. People say how lucky he is to have us, but we see it completely the opposite. He officially became ours on November 14th, 2016. He has had our hearts for over two months now, and now he has our last name!
