This is the week we will send of the paperwork to start the adoption process. I am as excited about this as I have ever been.
I am an incredibly lucky man who has a wife is far too good for him. So to not be able to provide this amazing person with the one thing she wants more than anything in the world is something that haunts me every day. It’s had a profound impact on every part of my life, how I feel, how I act.. everything.
I don’t think I always recognise how it has changed me, until I reflect and realise I am not the person I was when we started out infertility journey.
But, while I am sure that feeling will always be there in some form, having a family is now as close as it has ever been, and the next 12 months or so, while I am sure will be gruelling and stressful will be the most rewarding of our lives.
