What would you go through to achieve your dream? For me it was having a baby. After failing at what Mother Nature says comes naturally, my husband and I took advantage of everything modern medicine had to offer, again without results. Determined to be parents, we were left with the only remaining path – adoption. Though this seemed a more manageable route, adoption is far from predictable. This time our roller coaster ride faced unpredictable birth mothers, unreliable baby brokers, media competitions, mid-night crank calls, repeatedly changing government regulations and strangling red tape.
Finally, after battling the Romanian government. and traveling there to adopt a baby girl, we think our quest is over, but what should we do when this baby reaches three and declares, “I want a baby” and will not relent? Can our family endure the ordeal of another adoption? We are promised it will be easier this time, but it is not.
This is the heart-wrenching tale of our convoluted 10-year quest to have a family, from the serious, and sometimes hilarious side of fertility treatments, through two harrowing international adoptions. Our journey is filled with so many cliff hangers it reads more like a suspense tale than reality. As you come along for our wild ride you will be clutching this book praying we don’t get derailed again.
Our story of determination and tenacity will give hope to anyone facing a difficult life journey. Let my story motivate you to attain your dreams!
