I am so excited to share my hard work and determination over the past few months. As my husband told me so nicely the other evening when we were fixing a piece of the website, "persistence is key". I think he was right.
"The process of adopting a child pushes your personal envelope as a woman, as a mother, and ultimately, as a human being. It takes more courage than you think you have, offers more self-knowledge than you think you want and reassembles your characteristics into someone familiar but changed."
