Adoption IS an OPTION

This is a story about a couple who learned the devastating news that they could not have children and the joy they experienced when they accepted the option of adopting.

Saving Yourself For Marriage In The Old Days

Remember the old days when men and women would save themselves for marriage? It was acceptable in the eyes of society to be a virgin in your twenties. It was expected by parents for their children to save themselves for their wedding night. There was nothing wrong with saving yourself for Mr. or Mrs. Right.

Holding True To Your Beliefs and Values

I worked with a lady once who still believed saving yourself for marriage was the only way to go. She was holding true to her religion and her beliefs that she should save herself for her prince charming, that marriage comes first, then children. Her dream was to marry Mr. Right and then have a family. In this scenario she would be able to stay home and raise their children, like June Cleaver. It would be "living the dream", the dream she had her entire life. It wasn't until she was in her thirties that she found him.

Dreams Coming True

They started dating and she was in a place I had never seen her before. Completely in love and seeing her dreams coming to life. He proposed and plans were set in motion. He was the one. He was the Mr. Right she had been holding out for. This was the beginning of the rest of their lives. The wedding was beautiful...something out of a fairy tail. The church was packed, the wedding party was big and beautiful...PICTURESQUE. I didn't ask but I'm guessing the wedding night was exactly as she had hoped. They were anxious to start a family. It was her dream to have children and he wanted her to have everything she wanted. So they began immediately. Months of trying went by and nothing was happening, so she consulted her physician. The results were devastating to them. She waited too long to have kids. Her body wasn't producing the eggs she needed. I don't think I ever saw that kind of pain in someone's eyes before. All the dreams that seemed to be coming true, this was a huge crush. Every time someone announced they were pregnant or just had a baby, you could see that pain in her eyes...over and over. I hated to announce my own daughter's pregnancy on Facebook because I knew my coworker would see it and be sad.

Adoption Is An Option

After four years of marriage and giving up trying to get pregnant, they made a decision to give adoption a try. Though it wouldn't be the same as having their own, it would allow them a chance to start their family and give a child a good life in a good home. So they contacted an adoption site through their church and the wait began, along with new dreams and plans.

The Call Came In....How Do You Feel About Twins?

"Twins?", she said. "I never thought of twins, but yes!". She contacted her husband and they headed for the hospital where a set of twins, one boy and one girl, were born and in desperate need of someone to call mom and dad. I don't know how it came to be that these babies were put in this position, but I do believe these babies were born to belong to my coworker and her husband. Standing over these two tiny creatures, my coworker cried tears of joy as she stared at them, afraid to touch them. Is this real? Is this happening? Are they ours? She knew she would feel joy when she met the child she would adopt, but this was powerful and breathtaking. This was the strongest love she had ever experienced in her life. She never realized that she would love this strong for a child she didn't carry in her own womb.

Living The Dream

Things worked out for my coworker, her husband, and her now busy little sixteen month olds. *chuckles*. They keep her hopping, that's for sure. She has been home to raise them from the day they went to their forever home with their new mommy and daddy. She is living her June Cleaver dream. That dream is attainable for anyone wanting a child but can't have one of their own.

Give Adoption A Try

If I reach just one person who is on the fence about adopting, and helping them understand that adoption is an option, I've done good. If I reach one person who is on the fence about abortion or giving their child up for adoption, and they choose adoption, then I've done even better. I write this so people know adoption can be an option, for everyone involved.

I believe adoption is like 10 times more important than giving birth...to decide to raise a child that is not biologically yours requires tremendous courage and sensitivity. Thanks for sharing this beautiful story, it is inspiring indeed.
