Follicle Check..PERFECT!

Well I went to the RE and my wonderful doctor was back from vacation I really did miss him:) He just has a way to make you feel so much better and hes always sooo positive about everything no matter if its good or bad news.

So I went for the vaginal ultrasound for the follicle check and I have 2 follicles that are now 20 & 25mm which he said was absolutely perfect I could not have asked for better numbers. I got an HCG shot because he was so pleased and well see what happens. He said I should ovulate anytime in the next 24 hrs or so:) It just made my day. Regardless if we get pg or not I just needed something to go right and hear some good news:)

Then I called CA (Thanks Kellie for all your info!) and the lady that owns it was truly wonderful. I think if it doesnt work out we will definitely go with them. I emailed 49 couples about their program with some questions so hopefully I will receive some answers from people who have used them. It was almost like I had this feeling that Ive never had..the feeling of excitement..the feeling of hope...the feeling that God was trying to tell me you have been trying this on your own, turn it over to me and give me the reigns and lets do this my way and not your way. A feeling I have never had with the state or Bethany.

We called a dear friend of ours who is a photographer and he has been so sweet to take pictures for our online profile I cant wait! Now we are going to start writing our dear birthmother letter so if anyone has any websites, books, blogs, etc that have helped you to create a wonderful birthmother letter please share!!

Im just amazed how you can go from feeling in your darkest and worst moments to being so excited for the future:)

what great news Amber! I just emailed you a copy of the letter Brett and I wrote when we were getting approved for Dylan's adoption. I hope it helps! Also, have you ever looked at the rhouse blog? If not, you need to! http://therhouse.blogspot.com. It's a great place to go if you are dealing with infertility and adoption. Oh, and I think God picks us, because he knows we are strong enough to handle all of this. He also knows our hearts are big enough to welcome a baby into our homes that weren't born into this world by our bodies. It takes a special family to love and care for a child and make them your own when they are not of your flesh...

I will email you a copy of our Dear bmom letter so you can see it. Just be honest and be yourself. Share the things you enjoy! Glad you liked CA, I'm telling you, when you described that feeling of hope that you hadn't felt before, that was the Lord telling me this ministry is for us. Nothing else gave me that peace. We'll be praying for you this month!

Awesome News! Good luck with the pictures and the BM letter! I googled birthmom letters and read through a bunch of them and took notes of what I liked and what I didn't like and then we made our own! Good luck!
