So busy!

Welcome everybody and thanks for stopping by. The short and sweet is we suffered unexplained infertility for 4 1/2 years before we found out we have very bad male factor. We were only give IVF or adoption, therefore we are in the middle of getting cert to adopt. Now that your all caught up the cert is going but it's so hard. We are almost done with classes but we still have been approved. They did our homestudy and send it to us, it read well I think but they said between that and our background coming back (hubby had a DUI in 2005) they need all this extra stuff they didn't tell us we needed in the beginning, even thought this was on our application. I should have known they ask for proof of DUI class completion but at the same time, if he has his license why do they need all this. Plus they want a note from the doctor that he's stable on his meds for his seizures. It was going so smooth that I guess I was just hoping it would all keep going that way and we'd be approved soon. I know this isn't easy and I knew it wouldn't be smooth but man this weekend has been hard. I just hope we can get all this extra paperwork for them and get approved, I'm just scared! I just want a baby so badly! In other news, root canal got finished a couple weeks ago and it was AWESOME! I feel so much better. I got my walking boot off as well. I've been in tennis shoes for a few weeks and I feel better but still having some pain. I don't see ditching them anytime soon. Doesn't look great in dress clothes but I'll live. I got a new job! Same pay, WAY better benefits. Paid holiday, sick, vacation, 401K, awesome insurance, and PAID maternity leave after I work there for a year so if it does take awhile to get a baby at least I'll get maternity leave, which will give us time to figure out the money/staying home vs working thing. I guess thats all for now, I need to sleep. Tons of homework this week and two tests and a paper next week on my first week of the new job. I think I took to many classes! I'm pretty burnt out! Is it Dec??


  1. Hello from ICLW, and congratulations on your new job - sounds fantastic, well, the benefits anyway! Good luck as you continue to move through the adoption process.

  2. This sounds like a great update! Congrats on the new job, and being through the root canal! I hope your approval will get through soon. I have never been through the process, but I am amazed by how 'invasive' some parts of it really are. Best luck with your journey!

  3. Sounds awesome! Congrats on the new job! I had to get extra paperwork done from my doc for my heart condition when we were doing our homestudy. It's such a pain but glad you got through it!

  4. Congrats on the new job! Crossing fingers for you.
