Update on the "Seeds"

We know a little more about the situation with these twin baby girls. But not much more. I guess our family friend works with this guy ("D" we'll call him). D and his wife are an older couple, older as in thinking about retiring to Florida soon. They have grown children of their own. D's wife has a friend (the friend is the mother of the girl who gave birth to the twins). Apparently the daughter is young and the mom (the grandma of the twins) has tried taking care of them but can't afford to. So she asked her friend (D's wife) if they would take the twins in. No other info on the mother of the twins or the father of the twins. D and his wife are thinking about looking for a good family for these twins to go to....

Our family friend is going to see D on Wednesday and he will let them know we are very interested....

I'm not sure where this will go. There are so many other questions such as "Does the mother and father of these twins definitely want to give them away?" So many other questions too. But all we can do is wait and pray that whatever is meant to be will be...

I just feel a strong connection to these girls. Yes, this came out of left field, but maybe it was supposed to? I would regret not trying for these girls, when we don't have a clue what the future will bring us. Who knows if IVF would work for us. I don't want a year or two to go by, with more failed cycles, knowing that we could have had a family if we only tried to adopt these girls. There's no way to know what the right path is.

It's like walking with a blindfold on. You don't know what you're gonna walk into until you actuallly walk into it...

You've been seeing signs like crazy girl. I hope you get some sort of "answer" very very soon.

I think its great!! I love the idea of adoption. And some time things happen for a reason and this might just be one of those things. Keep us updated! Good luck in finding more out!

I hear so much of what you are feeling. When treatments AND adoption are options, it's hard to know the best way to move. I truly believe that you will feel in your heart the best path for you to go. It wasn't the easiest decision for us, but once we opened our hearts to the best path toward our children, the decision was immediate and our hearts were at peace. In any event, if these girls do come to you, they will be blessed. They will be loved and held dearly, and they will always have a direct path to knowing and understanding where they came from. From what we've learned through our educational courses, that is a huge benefit in terms of fostering their self confidence and sense of identity. Wishing you the very best...

All you can do is follow your heart. I really hope this works out for you, because I can really feel the love when you talk about them.

I can't wait to hear how the visit goes tomorrow. I'm dying for more details about this situation...

I'm so far behind on my blog reading and just now getting caught up. This sounds like these girls might be meant for you. I think you're right to get more information and then just follow your heart. I think lots of times people choose adoption not because they don't want their children, but because they want what's best for them :)
