We found out we may have our sweet Becky with us by Christmas! I know most of you probably don't know me since it's been 5 years or more since I was a regular on the web infertility boards. I remember what a hard time in my life that was, so I thought I should post our news here to let you know that life does go on and it can get better than you ever imagined! After 10 years of marriage and TTC we are finally having a baby. The adoption process has been wonderful and I cry almost every day now (not like I used to when I'd get my period each month) but this time a happy crying since I know I'll have my sweet baby soon! I spend all my free time making diapers and organic clothes for her, and just can't wait to hold her in my arms at last.

Love to all who are TTC. I know what a hard part of the journey that is and my heart reaches out to you to try and give you some sort of comfort.

Congratulations!!! What a lucky baby, coming home to a whole custom-made wardrobe!

While you're waiting: Have you read The Diamond Age by Neal Stephenson? It's fabulous science fiction about a whole bunch of ideas, but a main component of the plot is a huge group of Chinese baby girls who've been rescued from infanticide and trained for a special mission. They rock! Check it out!

Sorry about he just got so excited about

The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it.  We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
