One of my biggest pet peeves right now is when people find out I'm pregnant and they go into the whole story of "I know so and so who adopted and a month later found out they were pregnant...sometimes that's all it takes." This little story brings me back to the time when we were adopting and people would tell me that I'm going to get pregnant right after. Well how the heck do you know? Are you God? Do you know my whole life plan? And why are you assuming that this pregnancy is a result of our adoption? This pregnancy was 110% planned. It didn't just happen one day the good ol' fashioned way. It happened because God had a unique plan for us. It's still aggravating for me when others don't understand infertility and how to approach couples who are struggling with it and who have struggled with it in the past.
That being said, during some of my hardest and most painful days, sometimes music was my saving grace. God introduced me to an artist by the name of Jamie Grace just when I needed her music the most. I would listen to her song "Holding On" on repeat some days because all I wanted to do was give up. This song can still bring tears to my eyes because it reminds me of how far we have come.
