Close your eyes…
Remember the first time you laid eyes on your newborn baby?
Remember her smell?
Remember the inescapable force that kept your lips pressed to his peach fuzz head?
Now imagine that no matter how hard you tried, no matter how many tests, no matter how many painful injections you endured you were never able to reach the ultimate utopia of motherhood.
Imagine watching all your friends weep tears of joy as they witnessed first after first. Trying to share their elation. Trying to withhold the tears. Trying to not make it about your “failure”.
I can’t imagine this heartbreak. Pregnancy has come easy for me, however discretion does not. At my 10yr high school reunion I was 32 wks pregnant with Paisley. Me and everyone else there asked a friend when her and her husband were going to have children.
The assumption was made that they were just “living it up”, traveling the world, enjoying their freedom. Almost 3 years later I discovered how wrong I was. My friend had in fact endured years (YEARS!) of infertility treatments with no success.
When I learned of her adoption pursuit and the financial goals they had, I immediately knew that I could help. God has blessed me with this amazing blog and 1 1/2 yrs ago He gave me the endurance I needed to write the Ultimate Guide to Cloth Diapers.
For the month of July (at the earliest ;) I reserve the right to continue!) my husband and I would be honored to donate ALL proceeds from ebook sales to Not For Crybabies.
“Not For Crybabies was created to help us raise funds to
fulfill our dream of becoming parents. With the rising
cost of adoption and the declining economy, it has
become harder and harder for prospective adoptive
parents to fund the adoption process. With your help,
we will become a complete family and maybe even help
another adoptive family realize their dreams!”
