I want to be a mom.
I’ve wanted to be a mom for years now and it’s never been the right time. The timing now still isn’t perfect but there never really is a right time.
For a while, I’ve wanted to adopt. Lyme disease is something I could pass on and it’s a fear of mine. So when an add popped up on Facebook for a local adoption agency, I figured I would call and see the costs. He told me it’s $30,000-$60,000 to adopt an infant. When I asked if there are grants or financial assistance, he laughed, and bluntly told me to start save my money and then call back.
I hung up the phone in shock. I don’t understand why it’s so expensive. There are so many couples like me, who could never afford this, but could provide a loving home.
My husband turns 32 in a month, and in October I turn 31. I always wanted to be a young mom, but that ship sailed years ago and my friends remind me that I only have a few more years before I hit 35 and pregnancy becomes complicated.
This has just been weighing heavy on my heart and blogging always seems to make me feel better.
