Cris and Ali brought home their sweet little one with the assistance of Christian Adoption Consultants. In her own words, Ali beautifully shares how the Lord did a powerful work in her own heart during their journey from loss to the gift of adoption:
“My husband and I were told that it ‘may’ be challenging to become pregnant. All the doctors and specialists were right, it was challenging. But we wanted to become parents SO badly, that the trips to doctors, the shots, the tests, the blood work, ultrasounds, stress, canceled plans and loads of money were all going to be worth it. In 2007, I started to research adoption because, well, maybe adoption was our path to parenthood. Needless to say, that research stopped because I got pregnant. The pregnancy didn’t sustain and although broken hearted, we decided to pursue fertility treatments because I could get pregnant after all. However, my medical condition grew more complicated. And in 2011, there was no more hope of having a biological baby.
To be honest, I lost my faith. I felt that The Lord abandon me. I couldn’t understand why this was happening. I was teetering on faith and I needed something or someone to lead me. To help me. My husband always mentioned adoption but during the treatments, I pushed his comments aside. The cycle over four years; deep sadness followed by hope followed by anticipation followed by a pregnancy followed by loss. I grieved. I begged. I bargained. Why wasn’t I a parent? But I was. I am a mom to four unborn children. The love I felt for each one allowed me to pour over information about adoption. I found CAC and sent Karalee our first email. She was helpful, kind, supportive and became a true friend. She was a beacon of light. She helped me restore my faith in The Lord because He sent her to me. I went back to church, became a social butterfly once again and found hope in our situation. He had a plan and I needed to trust in that plan. Together, we did it. That drive to be a mom was still there. I was going to be a mother. My husband a father. Our journey to parenthood was not over, in fact it was just beginning thanks to The Lord sending us Karalee!
Once we found Karalee and CAC, the journey to our baby was wonderful. It was less stressful than our fertility treatments. And full of hope. Honestly, pursuing adoption was more easier on my body, heart and mind. I no longer carried the issues of infertility from day to day. We left that behind. I could look in the mirror and could stop hating my body; we weren’t fighting anymore ( I have a more loving relationship with my body now) I became whole with adoption, which allowed me to treasure our adoption journey. We signed with CAC in January of 2012 and with the agency in October of 2012. We got a call on 2/23/13 that we were chosen. It. Was. Amazing. To. Hear. Those. Words. We said “yes” to many situations and we weren’t chosen all those times because HE had a baby just for us. Our son is the most amazing baby born out of love, hope and promises made by two families.
Throughout our journey, Karalee was right along with us. I sent sooooo many emails with questions about all the different possibilities, the varying processes and she was ALWAYS there for us. We had no idea what to expect but her faith showered upon us. We are SO thankful for her guidance and support. We love her.
We appreciated the level of support and faith that CAC shared with us. How amazing to watch families bloom and grow on a daily basis. Their guidance and support was so important to us. It was such a wonderful experience.I have spoken with several people about adoption. I tell them about Karalee. I inform them that without her and CAC, I wouldn’t be a mom to the most amazing baby, whom was born out of love. I give any and all information and hope they become parents also!”
??Thank you, Cris and Ali, for giving CAC the joy of being a part of your beautiful adoption journey.
