We got it

The invitation letter to our MAPP training came yesterday afternoon. In about a week and a half we'll have our first class. I feel like we're actually doing something toward making this happen, even though in reality we're just waiting to do something. It reminds me of when I went to RE#2 and got a plan for a new IVF protocol. It felt like getting a shot of a new feel-good drug. I guess hope is a high. I remember counting the days until AF would come and I could start lupron---and I hated lupron. I didn't know then that IVF wouldn't bring us the child we longed for, but I'm feeling confident that adoption will. And as of yesterday we're one step closer.

Good news. It is nice that you are moving forward. Idling or in reverse is always so frustrating.
Wishing you the best!

DH and I have decided to start down this very same path. I contacted our local foster/adopt agency earlier this week. They responded with a number for me to call so that they could provide me with an information packet. I'm going to all on Monday to get all the info!

Congrats on being one step closer.

When we stopped fertility treatments, I thought we had left the rollercoaster of emotions where the destination wasn't clear. Now I know, we just jumped on a different kind of rollercoaster with a clear destination, but it still had its ups and downs...

I just had to say that you're 100 words made me shiver. I could sense the fear in your students from your words....
