The idea of adoption was first introduced to me when my hairdresser asked if I would be interested in a baby (one of her clients’ granddaughters was pregnant and considering adoption.) I jumped at the opportunity! Fast forward 8 or so months, after not hearing anything else about that situation, I started researching my options, which were included fertility treatments with donor sperm, using a gestational surrogate or adopting.
Then, on February 15, I received a call from an adoption attorney in my home state telling me that her agency was working with a new expectant mother, and the attorney had a strong feeling that this baby was meant for me! Of course, the agency presented the expectant mom with multiple books of possible parents, but the attorney was right, and the mom picked me!!! (We have a shared love of animals, along with other things in common).
